Amazon takes down Wikileaks

Written by Fudzilla staff


Refuses to comment decision
Amazon has stopped hosting Wikileaks just a couple of days after the whistleblowing site chose to migrate to Amazon’s cloud following a series of massive DDoS attacks.

It’s believed that the decision to give Wikileaks the boot was made under political pressure from US political circles, mainly Senator Joe Lieberman.

However, Amazon is not saying what prompted it to leave Wikileaks in the cold.

Perhaps it took it down because of DDOS attacks to its cloud server.

Good, they should never have protected them in the first place. Wikileaks are just stirring the cesspool, somethings are secret for a reason, they are not doing ANY good.

The entire site should be removed and the owners banged up.

You're a dumb ass. Wikileaks has become nothing more than an America hate machine ran by a rapist.

Would feel nice if this was actually Amazons idea.. Really hate how people want betrayal to happen so long as they aren't the ones being betrayed.

As soon as they knew, he had the docs, they wanted him to get screwed in some low life rape case. Yes, government guys did knew this guy would come up with the entire site and make them look dumb.

Amazon is trying to make money, pissing off at least half your base by supporting the Soro's puppet commie leaks makes people not want to buy from them. I don't blame Amazon one bit for wanting to stay away from this.

So how exactly is this going to stop the Guardian and the other european papers printing the leaks...The Americans are such Arse's.Trying Internet censorship like this is like trying to hold water in your hands.It will not work.

As with the pedophile book, why do people think Amazon (an electronic retailer) has the responsability of upholding the First Amendment? Amazon should have the ability to choose who they do business with.
