Xipwire Holding WikiLeaks Donations in Separate Account Pending Instructions

By  

As reported in earlier Newsblaze.com stories, while a cyberwar continues against Visa, MasterCard and PayPal because they refuse to accept payments for WikiLeaks, a small Philadelphia, PA, U.S.A. web company, xipwire.com, has just confirmed to Newsblaze that they are accepting monies for WikiLeaks.

Via an e-mail Q&A/interview, the Xipwire spokesperson told Newsblaze, "We're still trying to establish formal contact with WikiLeaks, but they have been difficult to get a hold of directly. We're actively working various channels to let them know how they can reach us as well.

In the meantime, we are collecting the funds in a dedicated account on their behalf."

Meanwhile Amazon.com has stopped carrying the WikiLeaks server feeds but earlier today the company's UK site (and perhaps others) was still selling an e-book containing published WikiLeaks cables which is published by a third party, not Amazon itself.

Amazon.com is, of course, a seller of books and ebooks published by others.

Lost to many people in all this uproar is the fact that many of the cables published by WikiLeaks had already been published by major newspapers such as The Guardian (UK) after they were forwarded to the press by the non-profit WikiLeaks organization.

There are approximately one-quarter million diplomatic cables which have been obtained by the WikiLeaks organization but only a tiny number have been published or forwarded to the press.

The Guardian maintains a web page containing a summary of all the released and published cables on a day-by-day basis since the initial release on November 29, 2010.

Besides The Guardian, various other newspapers including the New York Times, Der Speigel, and Le Monde carry selected WikiLeak-released cables.

In a side story, The Guardian has reported that, as of about 3 p.m. EST (U.S.A.) today, a 16-year-old Dutch hacker has been arrested in connection with the Visa and MasterCard Denial of Service attacks.
