Looks like Julian Assange is wearing out his welcome in the world.
WikiLeaks turned to Amazon to keep its site available after hackers tried to flood it and thus prevent users from accessing the classified information posted. WikiLeaks said Wednesday it was now being hosted by servers in Europe.
Staff for Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman had questioned Amazon about its relationship with WikiLeaks Tuesday and called on other companies that provide web-hosting services to boycott WikiLeaks.
“I wish that Amazon had taken this action earlier based on WikiLeaks’ previous publication of classified material,” Lieberman, an independent, said in a statement. “I call on any other company or organization that is hosting WikiLeaks to immediately terminate its relationship with them.”
Christine Assange said her “highly intelligent” and curious son had been raised as a strongly ethical “seeker of truth”.
“He sees what he’s doing as doing a good thing in the world, fighting baddies if you like,” Assange told the Courier Mail, her local newspaper in Queensland.
“I’m concerned it’s gotten too big and the forces that he’s challenging are too big,” she added.
Gee! Ya think?
