Freedom of Information?

Something changed very drastically in the last couple of days. Who knew, that Wikileaks will cause the Americans to finally lose their First Amendment rights completely. From now on a call from Sen. Lieberman seems to be sufficient for a company (like Amazon and EveryDNS) to stop their service for any customer. http://wikileaks.org/ is gone. Welcome to http://wikileaks.eu/ http://wikileaks.at http://wikileaks.de/ http://wikileaks.nl/ and http://wikileaks.fi/

Does the US government  honestly think, it can shutdown a website, which is specialized in leaking information? To read about the latest developments on Wikileaks, I recommend http://wlcentral.org

On the other hand Pakistan and Russia of all places seem to loose their censorship grip. What’s next? The great firewall of USA blocks Americans from accessing http://wikileaks.cn/? Does it make sense, that a democratically elected government blocks its electorate from reading what their own diplomats wrote, while the rest of the world still has access?
