Senator Joe Lieberman Pushed Amazon.com To Drop Wikileaks
Senator Joe Lieberman, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, had slightly pressured Amazon.com to remove Wikileaks from their cloud servers. Wikileaks was hit with a DDoS attack so they moved their cables over to Amazon’s cloud servers.
Amazon’s “decision to cut off Wikileaks now is the right decision and should set the standard for other companies Wikileaks is using to distribute its illegally seized material” said Lieberman. Amazon’s cloud servers are self-served and is not pre-approved of in real-time for what is being uploaded.
