We Won One.

In what Julian Assange calls “a victory for free speech,” Iceland's Supreme Court has ruled that Valitor, Iceland’s Visa, must lift the blockade against payments to WikiLeaks or pay $204,900 a month - or $2,494,604 a year - in fines. A Wikileaks statement called the decision “the most important victory to date against the unlawful and arbitrary economic blockade erected by U.S. companies against Wikileaks.”

As always with Commondreams.org, this article is a damn good read,
and an excellent perspective of our shared Pax Americana reality.
Have you noticed how many articles I link from Commondreams.org?
It's because they do an excellent job of allowing truth to be authority,
rather than like FOX, where authority is manipulatively displayed as truth.
And like Alternet, DemocracyNow!, Truthdig, et al, the "Comments" section
is quite often as enlightening as the article’s themselves, sometimes even more so.
