Tunisia: Can We Please Stop Talking About ‘Twitter Revolutions’
Luke Allnutt, Tanglered Web blog, 15 Jan 2011




The WDIK column
Twitter is proving to be important. It wouldn’t be so important if there were no mobile feeds into the system.

The Tunisian authorities, it is reported, had the Internet as tight as a gnats bottom – as China has. Though the news is that just before he flew the coop to Malta/France/Saudi Arabia (probably right now sitting down by the poolside with an ice-cool Carlesberg, evoking for me the iconic Heinekin scene at the end of Ice Cold in Alex…oh, perhaps not, it’s a dry country),



Internet Ali removed some of the filters. Or – as we’ll learn sooner than later – the current regime did, in order to reduce the pressure.

WIKILEAKS SIPRNET Where Manning got the cables



SIPRNET [wikipedia]

“…SIPRNet was allegedly one of the networks accessed by Bradley Manning, who allegedly leaked the video used in WikiLeaks’ “Collateral Murder” release[6] as well as the source of the US diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks in November 2010.[7]”

SIPRNET [Cirizendium.org]

“….The large number of documents released by Wikileaks were provided by a person or persons with SIPRNET access. All of those viewed are marked with the label SIPDIS (SIPRNET Distribution).[3] As a result, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has ordered the Department of State to disconnect from SIPRNET until greater security is implemented. [4]”

Siprnet: where America stores its secret cables

– Defence department’s hidden internet is meant to be secure, but millions of officials and soldiers have access
Guardian 28 November 2010

State Pulls the Plug On SIPRNET

“Late last week, after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton informed the White House of the likely fall-out from the WikiLeaks cable dump, the White House came back with a question: “What’s our corrective action?”

Clinton’s undersecretary for management, Patrick Kennedy, had a simple suggestion: pull the plug on SIPRNet, the classified DoD network that PFC Bradley Manning reportedly used to download the cables from State’s inhouse classified database. “The White House said do it,” says a senior administration official.

The publication by WikiLeaks of more than 250,000 diplomatic cables, many of them classified, is forcing an administration-wide intelligence retrenchment as agencies reconsider how to balance the need to share with the need to know. With its third major dump of controversial classified information in nine months, WikiLeaks is single-handedly tipping the balance back towards inter-agency “stovepiping”, or walling off information from other departments.”
