Those companies who have turned against wikileaks in recent weeks are now under cyber-attack themselves. This morning – the credit card company Mastercard saw its website go down after a string of attacks by hackers in support of wikileaks. Yesterday – PayPal’s official blog also went down thanks to a “distributed denial of service” – a type of cyber-attack that floods a website with massive amounts of traffic bringing it to a standstill. Also yesterday – the office of the chief Swedish prosecutor in the case against Assange saw it’s website disrupted by hackers. Again – the wikileaks organization is proving that even thought they are small and relatively new – thanks to their high tech savvy – they can make profound changes on the Internet and around the world.

"A Twitter posting by American poet and essayist John Perry Barlow has proved particularly popular online today among Wikileaks supporters. "The first serious infowar is now engaged," he wrote. "The field of battle is Wikileaks. You are the troops."

Bernie Sanders' big win in New Hampshire has given his campaign a big boost, but even Bernie knows that there's still a long primary season ahead.
