INQUIRY ORDERED BY VISA INTO WIKILEAKS FINDS THE ORGANISATION IS FOLLOWING RULE OF LAW, VISA DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN

A company asked by Visa to investigate WikiLeaks' finances found no proof the group's fundraising arm is breaking the law in its home base of Iceland, according to a document obtained by The Associated Press.

But Visa Europe Ltd. said Wednesday it would continue blocking donations to the secret-spilling site until it completes its own investigation. Company spokeswoman Amanda Kamin said she couldn't say when Visa's inquiry, now stretching into its eighth week, would be finished.
This here again proves that there is indeed fascism. It doesn't matter that you are legal. It doesn't matter that your company does business dealings with quite some shady people, but hell, we just don't like you, and what the fuck does the rule of law mean anyway?

Another part of democracy died today. Because if the law doesn't apply to everybody, then it applies to nobody.  But hey, have fun with the worshipping of Obama's puff piece speech, you know, the one where he still claims the United States and its corporations as the haven of freedom.

Unless your name is Julian Assange.

Unless your name is Bradley Manning.

Unless you do exactly what we tell you to do.
