Here's some non-Assange, non-leak WikiLeaks news: the embattled website lost one of its major servers today when Amazon decided (after pressure form Sen. Joe Lieberman) to stop hosting the site. Earlier this afternoon WikiLeaks tweeted "WikiLeaks servers at Amazon ousted. Free speech the land of the free--fine our $ are now spent to employ people in Europe." Though the site, which says it has been fighting off hackers, appeared to go down briefly after losing its Amazon servers it is back up now. And just to rub it in, the site pointed out "If Amazon are so uncomfortable with the first amendment, they should get out of the business of selling books."
