The report begins: "WikiLeaks has demanded that Google and Facebook reveal the contents of any US subpoenas they may have received after it emerged that a court in Virginia had ordered Twitter to secretly hand over details of accounts on the micro-blogging site by five figures associated with the group, including Julian Assange."

Comments   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

The U.S. government is deathly afraid of something BIG that WikiLeaks may have. Otherwise their actions make no sense.

Their treatment of the Private makes it even more likely that the U.S. is in BIG do-do trouble.

I pray Wiki holds out long enough to expose the "do-do"

Sad that the corruption is so deep that the USA government is breaking its own laws to try and get the docs back

I disagree. I think that the US government has absolutely no respect for the Constitution now. Holder is another fake liberal. He doesn't prosecute torturers but does leakers.

Rather than concentrating so much on WHO helped leaked the docs,...I wish they would direct their efforts more into investigating the war crimes that WikiLeaks has exposed,...but I guess they dont care about that. Just goes to show where our US priorities are...

Welcome to Mafia style democracy. It kinda' follows Mafia style capitalism after all.

1. Manning made copies (meaning they belong to him) and send them to Australia to be published. Inspite of telling the world, what Manning thought and what his intentions where, US took Manning to keep mouth shut.
2. Manning, presumably, wanted to show the world, how the US is spying and intriguing in the whole world, manacing also their "friends", subduing their faults or crimes.
US diplomats stamping "top secret" on protocolls, not regarding them, but other peoples.
3. The copies belonging to Manning, given by chance to Wikileaks are to be given by them to us, Europeans, friends of America, for example. To be be informed and be able to vote (p.e. for or against sending troops) in our (still) democratic states. Hopefully. Hoping, that Americans are still strong enough fighting for transparancy with the help of their invention: free Internet.

It only goes to prove we are only as free as the government will allow. Lieberman must be afraid we will find out what he doesn't want known, but the other countries do.

Why is everyone playing tidily winks with the United States? It's bad enough that U.S. based companies like Google & Facebook have to take crap from the U.S. govt in a country that is supposed to be the greatest Democracy on earth which, at the moment, is the biggest joke of all, but for Iceland not to stand up & tell the U.S. as straightforward & as undiplomaticall y & as publicly & as strongly as possible exactly where to go, to hell & to stick it where the Sun doesn't shine, shows only weakness to the U.S.

The U.S. govt can only understand messages with strength behind them, & Iceland is being way too diplomatic in how its handling this invasion of Iceland's internal affairs by a foreign nation, the United States. Google & Facebook should, in turn & together, stand up & tell their own govt where to go. Each company alone has enough money behind it to fight what the Obama admin is attempting to do. Together, they can put up one hell of a strong battle.

People, companies & countries have to ultimately stand up to the Obama administration & to the U.S. govt in their attempt at stepping on and over our Constitution.

All this makes the USA look like a Fascist gov't... or perhaps it already has become Fascist.
