Bank of America stops handling WikiLeaks payments
By TOM MURPHY, AP Business Writer Tom Murphy, Ap Business Writer 2 hrs 41 mins ago

Bank of America Corp. has joined several other financial institutions in refusing to handle payments for WikiLeaks, the latest blow to the secret-releasing organization's efforts to continue operating under pressure from governments and the corporate world.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based bank's move adds to similar actions by Mastercard Inc. and PayPal Inc. Though previous moves have prompted reprisals by hackers, Bank of America's site is as well-protected as they come, security experts say.

Its site was problem-free through midafternoon Saturday.

"This decision is based upon our reasonable belief that WikiLeaks may be engaged in activities that are, among other things, inconsistent with our internal policies for processing payments," the bank said in a statement Saturday. The move was first reported by The Charlotte Observer.

Earlier this month, Internet "hacktivists" operating under the label "Operation Payback" claimed responsibility in a Twitter message for causing technical problems at the MasterCard website after it ended its relationship with WikiLeaks. PayPal saw its website subject to an attack that slowed it down but did not significantly affect payments.

Bank of America's website offers access to customer accounts through its home page, but it could be a tough nut for hackers to crack, security experts say.

No financial institution can "fully keep the bad guys out," said Rich Mogull, an analyst and CEO with the security research firm Securosis. But he added that customers shouldn't worry about WikiLeaks supporters plundering their accounts, because the bank has plenty of practice in warding off hackers. Also, previous attacks in support of WikiLeaks haven't targeted customer accounts.

"Bank of America, I can guarantee you, is one of the top targets in the world," Mogull said.

He also said the company probably confronts denial-of-service attacks regularly, too, and likely has strong defenses. "I'm not going to guarantee it's enough," he said. "It always depends on how big the attack is."

In such attacks, computers are harnessed sometimes surreptitiously to jam target sites with mountains of requests for data, knocking them out of commission.

Reached by phone, Bank of America spokesman Scott Silvestri declined further comment to The Associated Press on Saturday.

WikiLeaks says it's preparing a release of information on banks, which could include documents it says it has on Bank of America.

WikiLeaks responded to Bank of America's announcement with a Twitter message urging supporters to stop doing business with the bank.

"We ask that all people who love freedom close out their accounts at Bank of America," WikiLeaks said in its posting Saturday. It also called on businesses to switch funds from the bank.

WikiLeaks has received increasing global attention for its leaks of sensitive government data as 2010 has gone on. In recent weeks, it has released parts of a cache of more than 250,000 secret U.S. State Department diplomatic cables from around the world.

The site has come under pressure from several directions besides the financial. Attorney General Eric Holder has said repeatedly a criminal investigation of WikiLeaks' release of the cables is under way.

Against this backdrop, Julian Assange, the 39-year-old globetrotting Australian who is the driving force behind WikiLeaks, is battling extradition from England to Sweden for questioning about rape allegations. He was released on bail in London on Thursday.

Speaking Saturday outside a supporter's mansion in eastern England, Assange called the case in Sweden a "travesty." He also claimed he and others working for WikiLeaks face significant risks.

"There is a threat to my life. There is a threat to my staff. There are significant risks facing us," he said, without offering details of the purported threats.

In an interview with CNBC on Friday, Assange said his organization plans to soon release information about banks, and he told Forbes magazine last month that the data would show "unethical practices."

Assange told Computerworld magazine in 2009 that his organization had a trove of files on Bank of America. "At the moment, for example, we are sitting on 5GB from Bank of America, one of the executive's hard drives. Now how do we present that? It's a difficult problem," he was quoted as telling the magazine.

Ugh.


Yeh it stinks.

Well thats Alex Jones job isnt it?

To spew his stinking spittle infested rants
all over information whether its genuine or
not. Then the overcautious or conservative or
careerist(juicemedia) are afraid to thoughtfully
touch on sullied content. Its a cultural norm to
dissassociate oneself from the 'crazy' guy. But
Alex is not crazy. He's savvy, hes theatre, hes all
psyched for his pivotal performances. And the
genuinely disturbed or emotionally imbalanced
are far more sensitively attuned to the world
than that fat heap of shite. I know ive felt that
imbalance in the past and its isolating effects
but ive never spat in anyones face.

But it doesnt really matter, like Bri said
earlier, its attention seeking and people
are tired of it.

Alex the world is bored. youve PEAKED.
Bye dee Bye now. moon

Thought you might find this interesting:

Who is Behind Wikileaks? by Michel Chossudovsky
http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=22389

Excerpt:

Quote:
The important question is who controls and oversees the selection, distribution and editing of released documents to the broader public?

What US foreign policy objectives are being served through this redacting process?

Is Wikileaks part of an awakening of public opinion, of a battle against the lies and fabrications which appear daily in the print media and on network TV?

If so, how can this battle against media disinformation be waged with the participation and collaboration of the corporate architects of media disinformation?

Wikileaks has enlisted the architects of media disinformation to fight media disinformation: An incongruous and self-defeating procedure.

Interesting remarks by
Chomsky in the article ATM posted.


Here's the article by Jacob Heilbrunn which
Chomsky obliquely mentions above:

Quote:
Are the WikiLeaks Actually An American Plot?

Jacob Heilbrunn - November 29, 2010

The Obama administration is busily denouncing the WikiLeaks. Spilling secrets is a bad thing, we're told, for American national security. Relations with friendly leaders will be jeopardized. And so on.

But is it true? Or are the leaks, in fact, part of a carefully orchestrated plot by the American government?

Think about it for a moment. The Saudis, we learn, want America to cut the head off the Iranian snake. Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak says Iran's sponsorship of terrorism is "well-known but I cannot say it publicly. It would create a dangerous situation." In other cables American diplomats describe Hamid Karzai and his relatives in less than approbatory language.

Several things may well be going on. For one thing, the documents should create a comforting feeling among the American public that officials aren't asleep at the switch. President Obama may not be able to say that Karzai is a pathologically corrupt nutjob, but it's clearly what he and his emissaries think. Nor do they have any illusions about Iran. Or North Korea. So much for the myth that Obama is clueless. That would be one incentive for the administration to secretly welcome the release of the documents.

But there is more. Most of the foreign leaders quoted in the documents are stating the obvious. It's been clear for years that the Saudis and various other moderate Middle Eastern countries would like to see America and Israel deliver a knockout blow to the Iranian mullahs. But they were afraid to say so publicly. Now the WikiLeaks have done it for them. At the same time, the Obama administration has upped the psychological pressure on Iran, which has also just seen one of its top nuclear scientists assassinated. The message is clear: work for the regime and you will pay a price. Maybe there will even be a new WikiLeak about it in a year, showing that the Mossad arranged the hit.

The truth is that the American government engages in gross overclassification of documents, something that the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan inveighed against and that the redoubtable Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists continually battles. Maybe the WikiLeaks is a way of circumventing those restrictions. Getting American threats on record, while pretending to deplore the loss of secrecy, could be a potent weapon. If this is the case, then Obama may be craftier than anyone has assumed.

http://nationalinterest.org/node/4487

A rather juvenile analysis, as if Obama himself were doing all
this, and not the disinfo/psyop branches of the CIA/NSA.

Note the use of "Maybe" and "If".
The typical distancing of a reluctant US regime critic.

Quote:
Bri:
Did Noam Chomsky just call grow bollocks
and call Wikileaks a CIA fake? :Shocked:

Chomsky barely touches these issues with the end of a 40 foot pole:

Quote:

who question the noble motives Washington proclaims.

As the Wikileaks Op is now widely seen as intel psyop,
I see this as some tentative ass covering by Chomsky.

As usual, too little and too late.

I posted that Chumpskyite Progressive Liberal Neo Shite BS knowing full well the reaction it would recieve here, however, in my wildest dreams I did not expect this altitude of Next Levelism.

Demolition job well done, chaps. Purple Hearts and Congressional Medals of Honor are on me.

Nobody dissed you for posting it.

Good to know how Noam is handling WikiCIALeaks.

Any alleged NWO analyst who didn't early on out WikiLeaks as a
disinfo Op is either to dumb to matter or conveniently blind.

WikiLeaks was/is one of the NWO's most transparent Ops.

Which is why sections of the "alternative/conspiracy" media
got a green light to take a skeptical stance from the get go -
rather than risk a significant loss of street cred.

Please bear in mind that Noam Chomsky has a PhD in linguistics.

Diversionary semantics are his stock in trade.

For the life of me, I cannot make out what the Hell he is actually 'trying' to say here, there or anywhere.

But, of course that is exactly why he writes in such a deliberately ambiguous way.

He's an MIT bought and paid for shill. But, we always knew that anyway.

That is why I felt it necessary to post his essay.

A bad job on his part, undone.

What truly riles me about him is that he will pick up a pension to rival most of our combined incomes and depleted savings for dribbling such drivel under the guise of Ivy League professorship.

Add another Fake to that list, Fintan.

Come to think of it, why not launch a social utility called Fakebook? [I have already applied for intellectual domain name property rights.]

The resale price is negotiable.
