Oh, the irony of it all. While trying to squash WikiLeaks like an annoying bug, today the U.S. proudly announced that it is hosting the World Press Freedom Day next year. I would find this hilarious if U.S. actions against WikiLeaks were not so damned infuriating.

As of today WikiLeaks has over a 1000 mirror sites. While this number is impressive, it is by no means certain that WikiLeaks can withstand the mounting difficulties it faces, especially now that Assange is in custody in the U.K. for an alleged crime in Sweden. Its seems that the WikiLeaks organization is much more centralized than we've given them credit for, which is also somewhat ironic.
