Files on TrapWire, a government-sponsored program that allows U.S. intelligence agencies to track people's movements using surveillance cameras, have surfaced with  the latest batch of Wikileaks documents.

  9. WikiLeaks to Temporarily Stop Leaking, Focus on Fundraising

    Due to the excessive costs of various lawsuits and the problems of a blockcade by nearly all large credit cards, WikiLeaks has stopped leaking and is diverting all power to shields aggressive fundraising in order to get enough money to fight the credit card companies in court. Bank of America, VISA, MasterCard, PayPal and Western Union all refused to accept donations for WikiLeaks on December 7th of 2010 and the situation has reached a particularly dire point.

    While it seems that the companies engaged in the blockade have gotten what they've wanted, WikiLeaks doesn't look like it'll be going down easy. The site is not shutting down and is, instead, fundraising like crazy. On every page a "donate" window pops up and upon clicking the donate button, users are provided with several walkthroughs explaining exactly how they can donate so that the money actually gets to WikiLeaks.

It's unclear whether or not this actually happened, but the leaked cable discusses the option in detail.

    The 2009 cable outlines a meeting involving the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), a representative from the U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE), and representatives from the South Korean government. While the cable makes no mention of any specific plans or instances of topsite infiltration, there is language which strongly implies that ICE is familiar with the process as a result of campaigns taking place here in the states.
