Bank of America Join Blockers--Suspends Payments Made to WikiLeaks

In a sign of the increasing tensions between WikiLeaks and the corporate world, Bank of America has said it will no longer help process payments for the organization.
In late November they threatened to release leaks from a major United States bank with another data dump.

After MasterCard and PayPal, which is owned by eBay, announced they would no longer handle payments for WikiLeaks.

Maybe we all should think about this before buying on eBay, there are plenty of others who would be delighted to have our business.

Investors are worried that the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, was referring to Bank of America when he said in an interview with Forbes last month that he possessed a large cache of potentially embarrassing documents from a large American bank.

" I wonder ,wonder who,who wrote the leak on who"

This proves my theory about the these banks are pulling the plug on Wickileaks, it is for there own reasons, not necessarily because of pressure from the US government.
