WikiLeaks Volunteer Targeted in Secret Government Order

Three days after the White House issued a “WikiLeaks executive order” in an effort to avoid further WikiLeaks-style releases, the Wall Street Journal reports that the U.S. government has obtained a secret court order to acquire the e-mail data of a former WikiLeaks volunteer.

The order forces Google and a small Internet provider called Sonic.net to hand over the e-mail addresses of the people that Jacob Appelbaum, 28, corresponded with over the past two years, but not the full e-mails.
