Since publishing US embassy communications, WikiLeaks has been subjected to treatment designed to force it offline. In many ways, the treatment of WikiLeaks echoes the treatment of terrorist organizations after the September 11, 2001 attacks. This paper documents the similarities between the treatment of WikiLeaks and the treatment of terrorist organizations and concludes that the differences between the two organizations will ultimately lead to the failure of the campaign against WikiLeaks.
