The following release was sent out this morning:
On Thursday, Antiwar.com launched wikileaks.antiwar.com, a new site designed to direct any user to the best WikiLeaks mirror site in his or her area.
â€œSince the shutdown of the main site WikiLeaks.org, thousands of mirror sites have been established to maintain access to the important documents that WikiLeaks has made available,â€ said Antiwar.com founder Eric Garris. â€œHowever, each mirror is run separately, and may not always be accessible or up-to-date. This sporadic availability forces users to click on multiple mirror links until they find one that is current. Our new site, wikileaks.antiwar.com solves all of that by eliminating the guesswork.â€
Users wishing to review the leaked documents first-hand are encouraged to try wikileaks.antiwar.com. In one step, they will be automatically redirected to the best mirror for their ISP and area.
â€œAs the US government continues to escalate its efforts to shut down WikiLeaks in spite of the fact that it has been unable to identify any actual laws that may have been broken by the organization, such efforts will continue to be thwarted by WikiLeaks supporters who value it as an important journalistic resource,â€ said Garris.
â€œWikiLeaks is presenting an important service to the public by revealing the damning truth behind the US government’s foreign policies. It is essential to keep this information flowing and available to Americans and the rest of the world.â€
