Wikileaks- will the whistle blower now blow India?

The dirty game is on both on the shelf and of the shelf.
With the arrest of wikileaks founder in London has arouse a tremor both in the cyberspace and in the real world . The whistle blower has really brought u a big issue in front now. The website has brought out many classified documents infront of public  and exosed the other face of the "big brother".
WikiLeaks has been under intense pressure since it began publishing some 250,000 secret U.S. diplomatic cables, with attacks on its websites and threats against its founder, Julian Assange, who is now in a British jail fighting extradition to Sweden on sex crime allegations.

The Germany-based Wau Holland Foundation, which has described itself as WikiLeaks' main backer, on Thursday protested PayPal's decision to cut ties with WikiLeaks and said about euro10,000 ($13,000) in donations had been frozen.

The foundation rejected PayPal's allegation it was supporting illegal activity and said its lawyer had demanded that PayPal restore access to the account.
WikiLeaks' payment processor, DataCell ehf, said it was preparing to sue Visa and MasterCard over their refusal to process donations to WikiLeaks. DataCell CEO Andreas Fink said he would seek damages from the U.S. credit card companies, saying "it is simply ridiculous to think WikiLeaks has done anything criminal."

Pillay said if WikiLeaks had broken the law "then this should be handled through the legal system and not through pressure and intimidation."
In the Netherlands, a 16-year-old boy suspected of being involved in digital attacks by Wikileaks supporters was arrested.
The flow of online support has also sparked some solidarity on the streets. One pro-WikiLeaks protest in Australia sent about 250 demonstrators into the streets of Brisbane, while in the central Pakistani city of Multan, dozens took to the streets to burn U.S. and British flags to protest Assange's detention.

Will the next Wikileaks expose India's corrupt?

While Wikileaks did not say in its message what the third instalment of their release would cover. However, a Reuters despatch from Washington DC  said that classified US diplomatic cables reporting corruption allegations against foreign governments and leaders are expected to feature in the official documents that Wikileaks plans to release. It added:"Three sources familiar with the US State Department cables held by Wikileaks say the corruption allegations in them are major enough to cause serious embarrassment for foreign governments and politicians named in them. They said the release was expected next week, but it could come earlier. The detailed, candid reports by US diplomats also may create foreign policy complications for the administration of US President Barack Obama.
he media has reported that the US has warned India and other key governments across the world about the expected release.  Crowley has been quoted as saying: "We have reached out to India to warn them about a possible release of documents." Among other Governments reportedly cautioned are those of Israel, Russia, Turkey, Canada  and the UK.
Among the various events relating to Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran in which India figured during this period, four could be sensitive from India's point of view. Firstly, the pressure exerted on the Atal Behari Vajpayee government by the George Bush administration to send Indian troops to Iraq. By July,2003, the Vajpayee government had decided to say no to Washington DC, but there was a lot of voices in Delhi in favour of accepting the US request. 

The game is not over yet . Wikileaks will still be publishing the documents they have.
We still cant say that to which way this will go but one thing is for sure that the whistle blower has really pissed of America. I truly want wikileaks to do some favour on my country too and expose some scams here in India . I feel its more needed in India.
