DDoS attack, sex warrant won't stop Assange's leaky discharge
Latest Wikileaks: Pope caught short during forest ramble
The main Wikileaks site hosting US diplomatic cables has been downed, again, by an apparent denial of service attack.
Various Wikileak mirror sites are available and the "revelations" continue to dominate the news.
According to Wikileaks's Twitter feed the attack peaked at over 10 gigabits a second - about three times greater than the previous attack.
Arbor Networks said the attacks seem to have originated from a small number of IP addresses in Russia, eastern Europe and Thailand.
Interpol yesterday issued an arrest notice for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for alleged sex crimes committed in Sweden - accusations he has denied. Assange is currently believed to be in London.
Today's stories include claims that Bank of England governor Mervyn King believed, along with the rest of the nation, that George Osborne and David Cameron lacked experience and political depth. He apparently told the US ambassador to London that the pair "had a tendency to think about issues only in terms of politics, and how they might affect Tory electorability" – a shocking revelation indeed.
The site is releasing the cables in dribs and drabs in the hope of staying in the news for as long as possible.
Sarah Palin meanwhile called for Assange to be "hunted down like bin Laden" - we're assuming she doesn't mean hunted unsuccessfully at the expense of tens of thousands of lives and billions of dollars, but what does she mean? Answers below please. ®
