WikiLeaks Kindle ebook appears on Amazon

No small amount of irony today, as a Kindle version of the full WikiLeaks cables turns up on Amazon. The site content itself was yanked from the online retailer's hosting arm last week, over allegations that the leaked cables contravene the AWS terms of service; however, as reviewers have been quick to flag up, that doesn't stop Amazon making some money on sales of the ebook.

Ebook "author" Heinz Duthel is a prolific submitter of texts to Amazon's Kindle store, with around three hundred titles currently coming up on an ebook search. It's unclear how long Amazon will allow the text to remain on sale, though the retailer will likely face criticism whether it removes the WikiLeaks ebook or not.
