Just how far is the United States willing to go to throttle FREEDOM OF THE PRESS here in our nation...apparently pretty far if you look at what has been happening to WikiLeaks of late. Sure, they will not admit it, but the US, our diplomatic corp anothers have pulled strings, offered favors in their attempts to shut down WikiLeaks, as is witnessed by http://www.amazon.com/ dropping WikiLeaks from its service (despite a contract), and http://www.paypal.com/ revoking Wikileaks account, thus denying those that support WikiLeaks the ability to directly and immediately donate funds to their cause. So, this blog is asking the world to boycott these companies, shut down their income streams to protect both Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of the Press. Let's put this case in a nutshell...WikiLeaks DID NOTHING WRONG, it is our government who has FAILED TO PROTECT it's documents, and trust me, you yourself would not have to do anything illegal to find unprotected Secret American documents on the web.
No surprise that our lackluster Congresswoman Elect Nan Hayworth is silent on the issue...she is probably too busy spending more than most of us earn in a year on her own Hannikah and Christmas celebrating and gift buying....WHAT, you did not know she is both Lutheran and a Jew?

Video: Collateral Murder2010-04-05
WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad -- including two Reuters news staff. Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-sight, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded.
