WikiLeaks, Money, and Ron Paul

Another day, another dozen WikiLeaks stories, several of which revolve around money. PayPal has given in to pressure to release WikiLeaks funds, though they still won’t do further transactions. Mobile payment firm Xipwire is attempting to take PayPal’s place. “We do think people should be able to make their own decisions as to who they donate to.” PCWorld wonders if the WikiLeaks’ money woes could lead to great adoption of Bitcoin, the peer-to-peer currency system we’ve discussed in the past. Meanwhile, Representative Ron Paul spoke in defense of WikiLeaks on the House floor Thursday, asking a number of questions, including, “Could it be that the real reason for the near universal attacks on WikiLeaks is more about secretly maintaining a seriously flawed foreign policy of empire than it is about national security?” The current uproar over WikiLeaks has prompted Paul Vixie to call for an end to the DDoS attacks and Vladimir Putin to break out a metaphor involving cows and hockey pucks.
