Yup so.. after amazon, visa, and mastercard suspend wikileaks accounts for releasing "illegal" government files, amazon is now selling said files on its site in which you can pay for with a visa or mastercard lol.

Is it on the American Amazon Kindle site?
Since both US and UK Kindle online bookstores contain different content..

Edit to add: I like how it is tagged under politics in Japan... Hmmm...me thinks some are out to humiliate Amazon..

All Amazon is interested in is the money.

Remember it was Amazon who was selling a book by a paedo.

So as long as people pay for it, they just don't care if it is controversial or hypocritical.

I do not usually do comments like that but this time I am making an exception ...

ROFL LOL LAMAO , this is just to good ...I mean WTF ? Is this some kind of global joke or ... ? WTF LOL .

Ok now that I have expressed it in the only way that was appropriate for this type of event I will say , in a more civil maner ... What are those people thinking ? I mean what kind of super hypocrite do you have to be to pull a stunt like that
?

I agree with the previous poster , I give up on society

This was one of the reviews, absolutely brilliant if true, otherwise still shameless lol



To the other reviewers;
this is obviously a scheme by a supporter of wikileaks to create a backup of the wikileaks cablegate archive on Amazon itself using the ebook "self publishing" option that Amazon provides.

It is both clever and subversive.

Amazon has protected the first amendment rights of known paedophiles to self-publish works of "literature" so it will be interesting to see how they handle this particular ebook.

However, my review loses one star for the Author not explaining how the money on the ebook is divided up.
How much of the amount does Amazon get?
How much does he get?
Will he be giving any money generated by this to wikileaks?

These are questions he should be answering in the product description.

Well the BBC has started to report this within a story about Anon recruiting Wikileaks Data Army.


n a twist to the story it has emerged that Amazon, which last week refused to host Wikileaks, is selling a Kindle version of the documents Wikileaks has leaked.

Edit to add, the number of blogs and small media outlets picking this up is increasing, so should make interesting reading later when it becomes more mainstream.. thanks for posting
