It's even more unbelievable how much effort the US administration is putting into shutting down WikiLeaks.

I've said it before and I'll repeat it now ~ ANY company that has accumulated the level of data about individuals that Google now has is a national security asset and as such is going to be a target not only of foreign powers, but will be of great interest to our domestic agencies as well. And thus, it will not surprise me one bit if at some point a "WikiLeaks" kind of disclosure reveals that Google is working secretly with officials within this country, to share data that these officials consider valuable to the national security. If you consider it in those terms, the notion that the Chinese are going after Google because of "criticisms" could be just a cover story ~ they may be digging deep because "there's gold in them ther hills".

The unprecedented cyber attack launched against WikiLeaks is not so much because of what they have already published. It is because of what they will publish!

Which, if I understand the story correctly, will involve the financial sector ... and THAT, of course, is dangerous stuff to the PTB!

|This is nothing but Digital McCarthyism. Were it not for the threat it poses to the free Internet, it would even appear amusing. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama was ‘troubled' by the cyber attacks on Google, which were said to originate in China, and wanted those responsible to face the consequences. The more freely information flows, the stronger society becomes, he had said during an earlier visit to China. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was also strongly critical of Internet restrictions in China. Now the boot is on the other foot. Concern for free speech is nowhere in evidence as extra-legal methods are deployed to deny Americans their First Amendment rights. |
