Tech: Amazon drops extremely lame excuse for dumping Wikileaks

  • It’s clear that WikiLeaks doesn’t own or otherwise control all the rights to this classified content. Further, it is not credible that the extraordinary volume of 250,000 classified documents that WikiLeaks is publishing could have been carefully redacted in such a way as to ensure that they weren’t putting innocent people in jeopardy.
  • A statement from Amazon • Regarding their reasons for removing Wikileaks from Amazon Web Services. Pretty much everything we said about this whole thing last night still stands, even in the wake of all of this – namely, who is Amazon (which is running a service that should be impartial) to be making a judgment call here? This feels like an excuse more than anything else. They’ve created some major trust issues here. source
