Recently there have been quite a few tweets by one of the founders of WikiLeaks - Julian Assange - which might raise concerns about the health of the WikiLeaks project members.

WL is a website which is dedicated to expose the wrongdoings of politicians and other powerful people.

It seems that they have been stalked by the USA government from Iceland to Norway and their meetings have been under heavy secret surveillance. This happened after WL announced that they will publish a secret CIA video of an aistrike in Afghanistan.

From the WL Twitter timeline:

"WikiLea ks is currently under an aggressive US and Icelandic surveillance operation. Following/photographing/filming/detaining."

"If anything happens to us, you know why: it is our Apr 5 film. And you know who is responsible."

"We have been shown secret photos of our production meetings and been asked specific questions during detention related to the airstrike."

"We have airline records of the State Dep/CIA tails. Don't think you can get away with it. You cannot. This is WikiL eaks."

Once again the USA is playing world police and shamelessly assume they can get away with anything. But will they, this time?

The reaction by WL? Today they released another secret document, exposing how the CIA wants to manipulate European people. Just search Twitter for #Wikileaks if you want to know more.

There has also  been a video on youtube about this topic, by "Russia Today". Obviously th ey enjoy the epic fail of the CIA

Over the last few years, WikiLeaks has been the subject of hostile
acts by security organizations. In the developing world, these range
from the appalling assassination of two related human rights lawyers in
Nairobi last March (an armed attack on my compound there in 2007 is still
unattributed) to an unsuccessful mass attack by Chinese computers on our
servers in Stockholm, after we published photos of murders in Tibet. In
the West this has ranged from a police raid in Germany over an Australian
censorship list, to an ambush by a "James Bond" character in a Luxembourg
car park, an event that ended with a mere "we think it would be in your
interest to...".

Developing world violence aside, we've become used to the level of
security service interest in us and have established procedures to ignore
that interest.

But the increase in surveillance activities this last month, in a
time when we are barely publishing due to fundraising, are excessive.
Some of the new interest is related to a film exposing a U.S. massacre
we will release at the U.S. National Press Club on April 5.

So your location is Germany,
Then you should be able to know about the backgrounds of the WL incidents in Germany, and smart enough not to include them in your list.  The raid was a legally justified raid on the home of the registrant of the address. Turning an attempt of threatening against WL out of it is nearly as ridiculous as his behaviour about his mistake when changing the domain-provider.
And you should be smart enough to consider that WL and Twitter are both blocked in China anyway.
