Turkey Blocks Wikileaks After It Dumps Nearly 300,000 Turkish Gov't Emails

Turkey has a pretty detailed history of banning websites that it doesn't like, so the news that it's now blocking Wikileaks hardly comes as a surprise. After all, following the failed coup attempt, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wasted no time in moving forward with what appears to be a somewhat vicious crackdown on tens of thousands of people. So, when Wikileaks suddenly released 300,000 emails from the Turkish government for anyone to search and explore, it's no surprise that all access to Wikileaks was quickly blocked.
Of course, it seems at least marginally noteworthy that, just a few months ago, the European Court of Human Rights had ruled that at least one of Turkey's internet bans, on YouTube, had breached the right to information. Of course, with Erdogan's activities this week, you get the feeling he doesn't care much at all what the European Court of Human Rights thinks about his actions right now.
