WikiLeaks received another blow today, this time in the form of PayPal suspending all donations to the underground site which released 250,000 diplomatic cables, prompting some politicians to call it a terrorist organization and accuse it of sabotaging peaceful relationships with countries. PayPal said, "PayPal has permanently restricted the account used by WikiLeaks due to a violation of the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, which states that our payment service cannot be used for any activities that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity. We’ve notified the account holder of this action."
In the wake of the diplomatic cables disclosure, Amazon dropped WikiLeaks' servers, EasyDNS removed the WikiLeaks domain name (citing DNS attacks), and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange went into hiding (due to alleged death threats). People can still support WikiLeaks via checks to an Australian PO box, bank transfers, and credit card.
According to Gawker, the U.S. military is allegedly trying to intimidate soldiers into not reading the site, whose servers are now in an underground lair. And if you are sifting through the cables, you'd learn that apparently Libyan leader Moammer Gadhafi was so upset about his reception in NYC (the Bedouin tent thing, not being able to visit Ground Zero, etc) that he was threatened some sort of nuclear action.
