WikiLeaks News:
  • WikiLeaks announced they are launching a criminal investigation ahead of President Obama's visit to Sweden.

  • Bahnhof is auctioning off a server once used by WikiLeaks, claiming it was used for Cablegate. The profits will go to Reporters Without Borders and the Fifth of July Foundation. WikiLeaks responded:
    • "Sweden's Bahnhof was not used for WikiLeaks Cablegate. It was used for the Iraq War logs, along with PRQ and providers in other countries. Bahnhof did not seek permission to auction the WikiLeaks server or to use it for marketing purposes, or to send the proceeds to others. We support RSF. We do not support Bahnhof exploiting the privacy and goodname of their clients for marketing purposes. Bahnhof falsely claims that the server being auctioned was 'WikiLeaks primary web server'. It was not."
