Wikileaks and DHS
What do you all make of this wikileaks thing?
I call bullshit.
US Government seizure of the internet has begun; DHS takes over 76 websites
Source: Natural News
s part of a new expansion of government power over information, the Department of Homeland Security has begun seizing and shutting down internet websites (web domains) without due process or a proper trial. DHS simply seizes web domains that it wants to and posts an ominous “Department of Justice” logo on the web site. See an example at http://torrent-finder.com
Over 75 websites were seized and shut down last week, and there is no indication that the government will stop such efforts. Right now, their focus is websites that they claim “violate copyrights,” yet the torrent-finder.com website that was seized by DHS contained no copyrighted content whatsoever…
You see, when DHS is capable of shutting down websites for pirating software and music for “copyright violation”… why in the holy hell would they not be able to shut down ONE site that poses an INTERNATIONAL SECURITY THREAT?
So, yes… I’m calling bullshit.
