WikiLeaks Suspends "Publishing" In Order To Address Financial Shortfall

By "publishing" they mean leaking information like the names of informants in Afghanistan.. (Julian Assange went on to opine that if they were killed due to his disclosures, they deserved to be killed.)

The dire financial picture comes 10 months after PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, and other payment services significantly curtailed WikiLeaks' ability to raise funds by refusing to process payments from supporters. Assange told journalists in London that donations to the site have all but dried up since the embargo was put in place. Last year, the average cumulative total was about 100,000 euros, compared with 6,000 euros to 7,000 euros this year.


If WikiLeaks does not find a way to remove this blockade we will simply not be able to continue by the turn of the new year, Assange said at a press conference. If we don't knock down the blockade we simply will not be able to continue.

By the way -- remember when Wiki "accidentally" revealed the password for the secret files, containing the completely-unredacted version of US cables? Which contained the names of all the people working with us in hostile countries?

I was searching for an article about that. I didn't find that, but I found this -- apparently that secret file was sent out as an "insurance policy," guaranteeing that Julian Assange couldn't be killed without consequences. If he were killed, he'd reveal the password for the secret files.

Well, the password was revealed already, supposedly accidentally.

So...
