Amazon yesterday pulled Wikileaks from it's servers after they were contacted by Sen Joe Lieberman. Sen Lieberman is chairman of the Homeland Securtiy committee.
Lieberman said: "[Amazon's] decision to cut off WikiLeaks now is the right decision and should set the standard for other companies WikiLeaks is using to distribute its illegally seized material. I call on any other company or organization that is hosting WikiLeaks to immediately terminate its relationship with them."
To me this sounds alarm bells and sends up red flags in a big way. When the government can dictate to some private company what web sites it should host I think we should all be concerned. It is somewhat similiar to what we see China doing when something comes across the internet that they don't like and don't want the citizenry to know about.
