Wikileaks: Back from the Dead

Wikileaks is back with a vengeance. This week, the famous hacktivist organization reported millions of stolen emails from the international intelligence firm called Stratfor. Wikileaks refuses to release where their sources come from, although not-so coincidentally Stratfor reported an infiltration of their networks by another pro-information company called "Anonymous." Anonymous even tweeted to Stratfor: "y u no encrypt" to blatantly tease the company about the stolen information.

Diplomats predict bleak economic future for Cuba

Cuba's financial situation ``could become fatal'' within two to three years and the country risks being ``insolvent'' as early as 2011, according to a U.S. diplomatic cable from Havana made public Thursday by WikiLeaks. The cable, however, was sent Feb. 9, before Ra l Castro's government announced it was undertaking far-reaching reforms that would cut the jobs of 500,000 public employees, slash subsidies and expand private business in a bid to jump-start the anemic economy.

WikiLeaks Published Part Of The TTP

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) involves a 12-nation regional trade bloc that accounts for almost 40% of global gross domestic product (GDP) and about one-third of all world trade. The U.S. is leading negotiations and expects them to be finished this year. WikiLeaks published a draft, dated Aug. 30, that it says is the intellectual property rights chapter of the proposed pact that was debated in the 19th negotiating round. Intellectual property law expert Matthew Rimmer told the Sydney Morning Herald that the leaked draft favored U.S. trade objectives and multinational corporate interests "with little focus on the rights and interests of consumers, let alone broader community interests."

"My prediction for 2012 is a rise in the importance of ethics. I foresee a kind of WikiLeaks emerging to tackle the maneuvrings of less-ethical brands. The move will come from an independent organization with the sole mission of disclosing what those companies are up to. Most companies will be vulnerable to being targeted, despite having some sort of written standards.

Tunisia That ‘WikiLeaks Revolution’ meme

There's been a rather lot of, well, unsupported analysis on the internet seeking to attribute Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution, which drove President Ben Ali from power yesteday, to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. Uber blogger Andrew Sullivan writes: "This is a major, er, coup for Wikileaks and the transparency it promotes - especially against tyrants like Ben Ali." The theory goes that private US diplomatic cables from the Tunis embassy released via Wikileaks on December 7 revealed to Tunisians that Ben Ali was an authoritarian despot, that his family was supremely corrupt, and that life was crushingly hard for the Tunisian poor and unemployed, spurring them to take to the streets.

Defense attorneys allege that Manning became especially distraught that day because guards were bullying him. Manning himself testified earlier that his guards seemed angry on the morning the incident occurred, making him nervous. One of Manning s guards at the time, former Marine Corps Lance Corporal Jonathan Cline, acknowledged in his testimony that military personnel at Quantico had been irritated by a pro-Manning protest a day before the incident in the exercise room.
