    Warrant out for WikiLeaks founder


    Interpol, at the request of a Swedish court looking into alleged sex crimes from earlier this year, has put WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on its most-wanted listed.

    The Stockholm Criminal Court two weeks ago issued an international arrest warrant for Assange on probable cause, saying he is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and illegal use of force in August incidents.

    Sweden asked Interpol, the international police organization, to post a "Red Notice" after a judge approved a motion to bring him into custody.

    The "Red Notice" is not an international arrest warrant. It is an advisory and request, issued to 188 member countries "to assist the national police forces in identifying or locating those persons with a view to their arrest and extradition," according to Interpol.

    The Swedish court ordered Assange, 39, formally arrested in his absence, which requires Swedish authorities anywhere in the world to detain Assange if they come across him. Sweden's director of prosecutions, Marianne Ny, had requested the arrest-in-absence.

    "The background is that he has to be heard in this investigation and we haven't been able to get a hold of him to question him," Ny said at the time.

    Assange faces five counts that appear related to two incidents, according to the request Ny filed with the court.

    He faces one count of rape and one count of sexual molestation related to an instance around August 17 in Enkoping, just outside Stockholm. He then faces two counts of sexual molestation between August 13 and 18 in Stockholm, and one count of illegal use of force between August 13 and 14, also in the capital.

    Assange could be sentenced to at least two years in prison if convicted, according to the document.

    Assange, an Australian, was rejected for permanent residency in Sweden in October. Swedish Migration Board official Gunilla Wikstrom said his application failed to fulfill all the requirements but declined to give details.

    On Monday, Ecuador invited Assange to come to Quito to discuss documents leaked on the site relating to Ecuador and other Latin American countries, according to a statement from the country's foreign ministry.

    The ministry also offered to process a request for residency "in accordance with the country's current laws."

    In a November news release, Assange's British lawyer said the sex-crime charges stem from consensual sexual relationships his client had with two women.

    "Only after the women became aware of each other's relationships with Mr. Assange did they make their allegations against him," lawyer Mark Stephens said in the statement.

    Stephens also said neither he nor Assange "have ever received a single written word, at any time, in any form, from Swedish authorities on the Swedish investigation against our client."

    The media has been the only way they've learned substantial information about the investigation, Stephens said. He called it "a clear contravention to Article 6 of the European Convention, which states that every accused must be informed promptly, in a language which he understands and in detail, of the nature and cause of the accusation against him."

    Swedish prosecutors announced over the summer they were investigating Assange in two separate cases of rape and molestation. Ny said then there was reason to believe a crime had been committed, but that more investigation was necessary before she could make a final decision.

    Assange has maintained he is innocent, telling the Arabic-language television network Al-Jazeera the accusations were a "smear campaign."

    So, Assange will be the international political prisoner. This will be the first time in the history!

    Hao jamaa wanashangaza kiasi flani, walimuhoji huyu jamaa sometimes in August/ Sept. kuhusiana na hizo allegations na akaonekana hana hatia. All this stemmed up baada ya zile leaks za Afghan war. Sasa kuna new leaks kesi ile ile inaibuka. Sweden vipi mbona mnaoperate kama serikali za Africa?

    Hizi ni njama tu za Amerika kutaka kumfunga huyu mtu. Kwa Sababu za chuki zao eti kwanini anatowa siri za Wakubwa? Kama huyu Assange alimbaka Mwanamke kwanini hao WaSwden hawakumkamata mwanzoni?

    Ingelikuwa huyu Assange anamkashifu Mtume Muhammad (Rehema za Mwenyeezi mungu ziwe pamoja nae) wasingelimshitaki wala kuwatuma hao Polisi wa Kimataifa (Interpol); wangemlinda asiuawe na Waislam wenye siasa kali. Ama kweli Waswahili husema "mkuki Kwa Nguruwe Kwa Binadamu ni Mchungu"

    Assange, ameingia kwenye territory mbaya.

    Unajua kila siku ukitaka kupata public support fanya vitu vyenye manufaa kwa public kama vile alivyotoa siri za unyama wa askari wa Marekani nchini Iraq lakini hili la nani kasema nini na mawasiliano ninaamini huko ameingia choo cha kike na wakimkosa hapa kwenye hili basi hawampati tena maana hata yeye atakuwa anajuta kuwa alichofanya si kitu kizuri kwa usalama wa dunia.

    Huyu jamaa anatumiwa na watu wanaotaka kuhakikisha serikali ya Obama inakuwa crippled kuanzia domestic mpaka foreign. Nina ukakika wakati wa Bush huyu jamaa angeisha kuwa lebelled as gaidi na wanted dead or alive kama angefanya anachofanya sasa.

    Tukubali tukatae, kila mtu duniani ana mambo aliyowahi yasema private ambayo kama yatawekwa public yataleta mfarakano mkubwa sana. Katika hali kama hizi ni vizuri zaidi mtu kukaa kimya kuliko kuyatoa hadharani.

    Kwa waislamu wanafundishwa ni jinsi gani mnafiki anavyokuwa hatari na adhabu yake ni moto. Mnafiki ni mtu ambaye anapokuwa kila upande yeye hujifanya ni mwenzao kwa 100% na pindi akitoka hapo huyapeleka yote aliyoongea upande wa pili na mwisho wake husababisha uhasama.

    Nina hakika katika serikali ya Marekani hawa wapo na wanamtumia Julian kufanikisha azma yao. Sasa cha kufanya hapa ni kumbana Julian. Nina hakika kuwa yeye kaletewa mzigo aufungue na kwenye hilo anaweza kuepuka adhabu kama tu atacheza karata zake vizuri. Vinginevyo huyu jamaa watamfanyizia tu whether iwe public justice au dark justice.

    Tuweke ushabiki/chuki ya Marekani pembeni, mimi na admire hii initiative yao ya kuwa na profile za kila mtu wanayedeal naye heheh, hii inarahisisha mambo ya negotiation maana unakuwa unajua strength na weakness za counterpart(s) wako before hand.

    Ila kwenye hizi cable za State Department jamaa ameenda kusiko kabisa, heck zingekuwa siri za uvunjwaji wa haki za binadamu uko Iraq na Afghanistan alafu serikali ikajaribu kuficha hakuna tatizo ila kwenye hili la siri baina ya fulani na fulani si uungwana.

    DDoS (Destributed Denial of Service) attack on WikiLeaks gathers strength

    By M Alex Johnson
    Update 3:15 p.m. ET
    : WikiLeaks tweets confirmation that it has been booted from Amazon.
    _____

    Whoever wants to bury the WikiLeaks documents is doing a better job today - apparently with an assist from Amazon.com.

    The subsite hosting the classified State Department documents (cablegate.wikileaks.org) has been under attack since shortly before it started publishing the documents Sunday. While access to the site has been spotty, WikiLeaks had been more or less able to withstand the attacks until this morning, when it became completely unavailable.

    The site was down for several hours before returning erratically about 2:15 p.m. ET.

    The attack is what's known as a Distributed Denial of Service, or DDoS. A group of computer users or an organization distributed across multiple systems floods the host's servers with spurious requests for access, overwhelming the target so that it can't repond to anybody's request. It's the same strategy that's been used in previous high-profile attacks, notably the assault by the shadowy Internet collective Anonymous, which took down the Church of Scientology's site for several days in January 2008.

    Here
    's a good Wikipedia explainer on DDoS attacks.

    What's notable about today's attack is the scale. WikiLeaks tweeted this morning that the attack was "exceeding 10 Gigabits a second" - two to five times as large as the initial attack on Sunday. (Arbor Networks of Chelmsford, Mass., which monitors and protects companies against DDoS attacks, analyzed Sunday's attack here.)

    Another way to think of it is that someone, somewhere is demanding that the WikiLeaks cablegate site deliver the equivalent of 114 movies per second. That's about 50 times the size of the attack that took down Scientology.

    That's a massive attack, but it's not as big as some it has survived in the past. So why did it have so much trouble today?

    As Wired.com recounts on its Threat Level blog, the volunteer who set up the site's defenses was among a number of WikiLeaks volunteers who quit in September in a dispute with founder Julian Assange. They took their software with them.

    It's never been made clear what WikiLeaks replaced it with, but it is known that the site has been redirecting its addresses through cloud-based services, one of which, beginning over the weekend, was Amazon Web Services. Today, Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., a harsh critic of WikiLeaks, said in a statement (printed in full on Talking Points Memo) that Amazon had agreed to "cut off WikiLeaks."

    The Associated Press reported that WikiLeaks returned to its regular Swedish provider after Amazon dropped it.

    Amazon wouldn't comment, and WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson didn't respond to a request for comment.

    Na baadae anatoa au sio?

    Kama walivyosema wakuu kina Hofstede na Eqlypz; jamaa ameenda mbali sana.

    Watu kweli wanapenda sana kujua ya ndani sana na hilo nadhani anajua, ukianika bayana maongezi ya faragha ya flani na flani unakuwa unafanya zaidi ya kumvua nguo. Najua wanazidi kuchanganyikiwa na kuhisi ana zaidi ya kilichokwishawekwa; wakiendelea kumlea huenda akaanika makubwa zaidi ya sasa!

    Ni balaa
