WikiLeaks is to stop publishing state secrets because it is running out of money, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.
he whistleblowing website set up by Julian Assange said that it is temporarily suspending publication of leaks to fight a blockade by credit card companies.
The refusal to accept donations has cost the website tens of millions of dollars in lost funding, the website said.
WikiLeaks continued in its statement: As a result, WikiLeaks has been running on cash reserves for the past eleven months.
The blockade has cost the organization tens of millions of pounds in ost donations at a time of unprecedented operational costs resulting from publishing alliances in over 50 countries, and their inevitable counter-attacks.
Our scarce resources now must focus on fighting the unlawful banking blockade.

The useful idiots at Wikileaks are simply no longer useful...
Just another in a LONG line of Democrat useful idiots who find they are on the outside when they turn on their masters.
This surprises me.
If I were Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, I’d fund them - just to continue to be a thorn in the side of the USA. The cost is insignificant to Iran, and the damage off-sets the cost; for our enemies this is an opportunity.
Like I said, this surprises me.
Obummer’s Darth Vader bus isn’t big enough for all the dem party rejects.
South Park brutally satirized Wikileaks this week. They put an Assange haircut on a rat. Not sure if you can classify that as a Right-Wing attack.
Calling George Soros, Calling George Soros. George Soros, caugh up, please.
Actually I’m pretty sure this was due to the South Park episode last week ;-)
Maybe they should apply for some of the unused funds from the “Troubled Asshat Relief Project” (TARP).
The money ran out just as the “blame Bush” era ends. I find the timing suspicious. These days they’d have to deal with things like Holder and the Justice Dept., forged names on energy loan documents, ObamaCare scams, Insider trading by members of Congress and maybe taxpayer funding of Obama’s campaign trips, etc. Spooky Dude pulled the plug.
