Cause hackers are BAAAAAD, mkay?
'...hacker i.e. criminals are doing'
Please go somewhere and learn what hackers are. Hint: there were hackers long before there were digital computers.
Have a nice day.
Whio gives a crap about US law? The US doesn't care about International law so screw 'em.
This is the time when the US needs to learn US law only applies in the US.
Would still be nice for the US Government to state what law is actually being broken. They seem to be struggling.
Funny how the emphasis is on Wikileaks ... not the dodgy, illegal actions revealed in the leaks. But when you are up to your eyeballs in war crimes and corruption your only option is to shoot the messenger.
Looking forward to Twatter being taken out.
The Elephant In The Room
I know you all accept this is a "as it is", and "how it has to be"...but the elephant in this particular room is that *any* of the day to day working of *any* of our civil SERVANTS is in any way classified at all.
Truth and openness, it would seem, are the enemies of the state.
What are they hiding?
We elected them.
They WORK for us.
They are only our REPRESENTATIVES, but yet they keep all their discussions etc behind closed doors.
You are a fool if you think this is healthy or “pro-you”; it’s not.
It is understandable that a company such as PayPal would like to protect their brand identity. Thereby this action of suspending WkiLeaks account is expected. The brand they want to maintain is that they will suspend your account for little reason and be a total pain in the ass.
It's not illegal until the judge says so
Until someone is found guilty in a court trial, any statements regarding the illegality of their acts are merely unsubstantiated allegations. PayPal should have sent the relevant letter back to the FBI and said "tell us when this guy has been tried and found guilty."
This is called "the rule of law" and, oddly enough, is one of the issues the US was founded on.
"US State Department said the whistle-blower site was engaged in illegal activity."
and if you believe it, your an even bigger masturbator!
They will say and do anything to prevent us from knowing the truth.
