It’s done. PayPal is no more.

The check from PayPal cleared, so I was able to close my account with them.

Good riddance.

US vs. Free Speech

Looks like it’s open season in the US for anyone who has anything to do with WikiLeaks.

Jacob Appelbaum (of TOR) was detained in the US border after returning to the US from The Netherlands earlier today. He was detained for three hours while the stormtroopers from the US Army and ICE questioned him about WikiLeaks (he’s a WikiLeaks contributor), searched his belongings (incl. his computer) and seized three cellphones.

This is what it’s become? Anyone even remotely involved with the organization is now subject to “random” searches and having their belongings seized for no good reason.

It’ll be curious to know, if the US Army really thought Mr. Appelbaum had anything to do with the Afghanistan war documents leak or were they just harrassing him for being associated with their new Public Enemy Number One.

Fuck this.

WikiLeaks.org is accepting donations at its website.

The War Against WikiLeaks

Glenn Greenwald of Salon.com writes about the escalating war against WikiLeaks.org by the United States Government.

WikiLeaks.org is a non-profit organization devoted to exposing Government and corporate corruption around the world. It’s published a number of embarrassing documents about CIA, The Pentagon and other branches of the US Government. As a result they’ve found themselves a target of around the clock surveillance and at least on one occasion a WikiLeaks volunteer, who is underaged, was detained and questioned by (allegedly) US State Department and CIA personnel in Iceland.

You gotta wonder when exactly did the US Government forget the reason the United States was formed.
