Guantánamo Bay Camp Delta Map from leaked military manual.
Wired Magazine reported yesterday that:
A never-before-seen military manual detailing the day-to-day operations of the U.S. military’s Guantánamo Bay detention facility has been leaked to the web, affording a rare inside glimpse into the institution where the United States has imprisoned hundreds of suspected terrorists since 2002.
The document was leaked through an “anonymized” Wiki site called WikiLeaks.org. The Wikipedia page for it notes that sometime since the leak the site “has become inaccessible”. I first heard of this from Rachel Maddow and discovered that the main site was inaccessible. I assumed Rachel had slasdoted the site, but this morning still no go. I tried several of the regional WikiLeaks sites listed on the Wikipedia page to no avail. If WikiLeaks has been the target of BlackOps, how did THEY get widely separated servers?1
WikiLeaks used the software from WikiMedia Foundation for assembling and presenting information and the The Onion Router to provide anonymity to whistleblowers.
As of 19:20 UTC Thursday Novermber 15, 2007 these sites all are inaccessible:
1I suppose a Domain Name Server attack might make all the WikiLeaks sites “inaccessible” if, like me, you don’t know any of the IP addresses. If true, a possible countermeasure might be for a number of “above ground” friendlies to post IP addresses to the net – an alternate DNS.
