US Registrar Yanks WikiLeaks Domain

I find it interesting that a country that espouses Freedom of Speech
will resort to such tactics.

Now, some will say, "well, he is releasing secret information that might
cost lives". There is, however, doubtful support of that contention.

Understand, however, that if there is a problem in that area, it is not
Americans having access to that information who will pose threats to
those who might be at risk. Obviously, it is foreigners who have access
that pose that risk. 

So, the rest of the world can read WikiLeaks, since it is only the US
Registrar blocking the domain. Consequently, it is only Americans who
are denied the information. 

Is it, perhaps, more likely that the government doesn't want US to know
what they are up to?

P.S. If you want to go to WikiLeaks, the IP number will get you there
without the domain lookup (word address).
