Mass-mirroring Wikileaks

 

4 December 2010 - Wikileaks is currently under heavy attack.

In order to make it impossible to ever fully remove Wikileaks from the Internet, we need your help.

if you have a unix-based server which is hosting a website on the Internet and you want to give wikileaks some of your hosting resources, you can help!

Please follow the following instructions:

* Setup an account where we can upload files using RSYNC+SSH (preferred) or FTP

* Put our SSH key in this server or create an FTP account

* Create a virtual host in your web server, which, for example, can be wikileaks.yourdomain.com

* send the IP address of your server to us, and the path where we should upload the content. (just fill the form below) {read rest and sign on if able}

Ron Paul also wishes Wikileaks was able to leak information that would expose the Federal Reserve in the US, but I wonder if anyone with access to such information could be of character to leak secrecies about the Federal Reserve.

That is an audio recording, only, and I think it may be for what he'll be saying tomorrow, Dec. 6th.

Wikileaks Reveals U.S. Government's Delusional Foreign Policy

by Ron Paul

We may never know the whole story behind the recent publication of sensitive U.S. government documents by the Wikileaks organization, but we certainly can draw some important conclusions from the reaction of so many in government and media. At its core, the Wikileaks controversy serves as a diversion from the real issue of what our foreign policy should be. But the mainstream media, along with neoconservatives from both parties, insists on asking the wrong questions. When presented with embarrassing disclosures about U.S. spying and meddling, the policy that requires so much spying and meddling is not questioned. Instead the media focuses on how authorities might prosecute the publishers of such information.

... This allows ordinary people to actually know and talk about what the government does.

State secrecy is anathema to a free society. Why exactly should Americans be prevented from knowing what their government is doing in their name? In a free society we are supposed to know the truth. In a society where truth becomes treason, however, we are in big trouble. ...

(snip)

We should view the Wikileaks controversy in the larger context of American foreign policy. Rather than worry about the disclosure of embarrassing secrets we should focus on our delusional foreign policy. We are kidding ourselves when we believe spying, intrigue and outright military intervention can maintain our international status as a superpower while our domestic economy crumbles in an orgy of debt and monetary debasement.

"JOHN PILGER - WIKILEAKS - "THE WAR YOU DONT SEE" TRAILER - ABC RADIO" (8:56)

It's an interview and the trailer for his new documentary, "The War You Don't See", is at the end of the video; it's in addition to the interview, rather than originally part of it. The Youtube video plays only audio for the interview and then shows the documentary trailer, and the interview apparently was on Dec. 3rd, according to the following page for it.

"Wikileaks part 3: Pilger"
www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfast/stories/2010/3083583.htm

Excerpt from the Youtube page:

Award winning journalist John Pilger speaks on Australian radio about the absurdities put forward by members of the american government.
John Pilger has a new documentary coming out in Britain on Dec. 12th called "The War You Don't See" which features an interview with Julian Assange. To see the trailer, go to:

There's also a link for the trailer (1:12) in the following page announcing the release of the documentary for this month, and the article states locations and dates for the showing of the film, which'll also be broadcast on ITV on Dec. 14th. I'll only excerpt the brief description of the film and the last paragraphs in the article.

"New Pilger film 'The War You Don't See' opens in cinemas and on ITV in December"

Nov. 5th, 2010

www.johnpilger.com/articles/new-pilger-film-the-war-you-don-t-see-opens-...

(snip)

The new film is a powerful and timely investigation into the media's role in war, tracing the history of 'embedded' and independent reporting from the carnage of World War One to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan and disaster in Iraq. As weapons and propaganda become even more sophisticated, the nature of war is developing into an 'electronic battlefield' in which journalists play a key role, and civilians are the victims. But who is the real enemy?

Read an interview with John Pilger discussing 'The War You Don't See' in New Internationalist magazine.

Directors: John Pilger & Alan Lowery. Editor: Joe Frost. An ITV/Strand Films Production.

The above article provides links.

I'll excerpt a little from the interview, the part in which he refers to Wikileaks, as well as the closing, which is for "good news".

"Interview with John Pilger"
interviewed by Vanessa Baird, New Internationalist, Dec. 1, 2010

www.newint.org/features/2010/12/01/john-pilger-interview

Issue 438

John Pilger has clear views about the duty of journalists. True to form, his latest film pulls no punches. He talks to us on the eve of its release.

(snip)

What do you think can be done to improve the coverage of war, so that the public gets a picture of what is really going on?

The answer is: tell the obvious truth; and the truth of war is the grotesque. It is trees hanging with the body parts of children. It is people going insane before your eyes. It is terrified soldiers with their trousers full of shit. It is human damage that runs through countless families: civilians and soldiers. That’s war. The coverage of war should be this eyewitness but it should also try to tell us the why. That means journalists not colluding but investigating. One of the most revealing documents released by Wikileaks was a 2,000-page Ministry of Defence document that equated investigative journalists with terrorists. That reflects the lethal stupidity that runs like a current through the war-making industry. It says they are afraid of the truth. (my emphasis)

(snip)

What is the good news?

The good news is that much of direct and indirect propaganda is not working. As I say, most people oppose colonial wars. There is a critical public intelligence that runs counter to the authority of the media in all its wondrous digital forms. Perhaps people sense the historical moment: that their social democracy is being appropriated by insatiable corporatism, regardless of which party is in power. In many countries – Greece, France, Spain – this is well understood and is being translated into direct action. In Britain, it is still a seed beneath the snow. But that will change; it has to.

People can comment on the interview following the transcript of it, btw.

ABC.net.au interviews on Wikileaks:

The following page indicates that were three guests on Dec. 3rd, so the interview with John Pilger, Part 3, linked further above was for the last to speak.

www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfast

The first to speak was "P.J. Cowley", "US Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs", and the second was "James Rubin", "Former US Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs". The text provided with the audio link for the interview with Cowley doesn't indicate what his view consists of, but the short text for the interview with Rubin tells readers that he's against Wikileaks releasing the diplomatic cables. And the reporter apparently was Michel Panayotov.

Direct links for parts 1 and 2 interviews:

Wikileaks part 1,

www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfast/stories/2010/3083581.htm

This week has been dominated by US embassy cables leaked by the whistleblower website Wikileaks. So far 611 cables have been released. Julian Assange, the Australian behind the website, says he has 251,000 of them. His whereabouts are unknown, but some reports, unconfirmed of course, suggest he is hiding in Britain. The latest cable to make headlines has Russia labelled 'a virtual mafia state' with widespread corruption, bribery and protection rackets.

The above excerpt is included only for the number of cables the reporter says had been released as of Dec. 3rd. Plenty of people reported that Wikileaks or Julian Assange said there was a total of around 2.8 million of the diplomatic cables and that releasing them all would take some unspecified number of months. This is the first time that I've read that only a little over 600 cables had been released, so far; having thought the number of released cables was the roughly 251,000 figure specified at Wikileaks last week.

If it takes them a week to release a little over 600 of the cables, then maybe it's going to take very many months before the roughly 2.8 million of them are released.

Wikileaks part 2 interview:

I'm not interested in what he says, but some people might want to listen to what Rubin said.
