Why the war on WikiLeaks is wrong and hypocritical

Quote of the day.

By Mehdi Hasan

Quote of the day.

The leaders of Myanmar and Belarus, or Thailand and Russia, can now rightly say to us: “You went after WikiLeaks’ domain name, their hosting provider, and even denied your citizens the ability to register protest through donations, all without a warrant and all targeting overseas entities, simply because you decided you don’t like the site. If that’s the way governments get to behave, we can live with that.”

* Clay Shirky, internet guru, writing on his blog (but hat-tip: Guardian live blog)
