Amazon’s UK site selling WikiLeaks excerpts

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:15 pm

Portions of the diplomatic cables contained in WikiLeaks are available for sale on Amazon’s U.K. website, an odd twist after the company ousted the organization from its hosting service.

Excerpts from some of the 250,000 sensitive documents were contained in a Kindle e-book self-published by an author listed as Heinz Duthel. The book isn’t available in the U.S.; people in the U.K. can buy it for 7.37 pounds ($11.60).
