Wikileaks is down due to an unprecedented DDoS attack which began shortly after the release of the emails mentioning TrapWire. Mirrors of the emails can be seen at http://www.cryptocomb.org/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=88:stratfor-emails-discussing-qtrapwireq&catid=1:latest-news&Itemid=50
"Abraxas has done work already pro-bono as good will. TrapWire may be the most
successful invention on the GWOT since 9-11. I knew these hacks when
they were GS-12's at the CIA. God Bless America. Now they have EVERY
major HVT in CONUS, the UK, Canada, Vegas, Los Angeles, NYC as clients." - Fred Burton.
TrapWire's parent company Cubic (now frantically trying to distance themselves from the scandal) have fingers in many other pies - see http://wiki.echelon2.org/wiki/Cubic_Corporation and http://darkernet.wordpress.com/2012/08/14/trapwire-the-barclays-connection-uk-aussie-army-training-questions-asked-of-uk-pm-aussie-senate/ for their involvement in everything from 'persona management' (= online sock puppetry) through to Oyster cards.
Any UK citizens who think their rights under the Data Protection Act regarding sensitive information may have been breached by TrapWire, and I am particularly thinking of anyone who may have arrested at any London-based political protest over the last five or six years, may complain to TrapWire by following the guidelines at http://www.trapwire.com/SafeHarbor.pdf
