WikiLeaks fights to stay online amid attacks
By RAPHAEL G. SATTER and LOUISE NORDSTROM, Associated Press – 5 mins ago
LONDON – WikiLeaks battled to stay online Friday after attacks on its servers forced it to change the name of its main website and heavy traffic crippled an online question-and-answer session with the group's founder.
The American company EveryDNS said that it stopped hosting the website wikileaks.org late Thursday after cyber attacks on the site threatened the rest of its network. WikiLeaks responded by moving to a Swiss domain name, wikileaks.ch — and calling on activists for support.
The Guardian newspaper took down an live online question-and-answer session with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after being swamped with visitors. The Guardian, one of the papers that has been posting hundreds of U.S. diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks, said it had received questions, and that Assange's answers would come in shortly.
"The first serious infowar is now engaged. The field of battle is WikiLeaks. You are the troops," Electronic Frontier Foundation co-founder John Perry Barlow said in a tweet reposted by WikiLeaks to its 300,000-odd followers.
EveryDNS said that "Wikileaks.org has become the target of multiple distributed denial of service attacks. These attacks have, and future attacks would, threaten the stability of the EveryDNS.net infrastructure."

They aren't going to get much sympathy from me'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Fuckhead should get life in front of a firing squad.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

It'd be too bad if he met an untimely demise.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
