Wikileaks under attack

We have anxiously and curiously been following Wikileaks Twitter messages. According to the tweets, “WikiLeaks is currently under an aggressive US and Icelandic 
surveillance operation,” which consisted of following, photographing and filming of editors. Computers were seized and one “related person” was allegedly detained for 22 hours. Two of the surveillance agents apparently had diplomatic passes  from the US State Department.

The WikiLeaks team added earlier “If anything happens to us, you know why: it is our Apr 5 film. And you know who is responsible.” Having a look at the Wikileaks Twitter stream reveals the whistleblowers allegedly received an encrypted video showing a US military airstrike on January 8th this year. Wikileaks called for supercomputer time, to aid with encryptment. The encryption was announced cracked on February 20th this year. 

Apparently, the video shows the shooting of journalists and civilians by the hands of the US military. The public will know more on April 5th, when Wikileaks says it will release the film. If the video in question indeed shows the slaughter of unarmed journos and civilians, heads are bound to roll.
