Transparency sites shut down -- by whom? Two Swedish transparency sites that have supported WikiLeaks and Julian Assange have been abruptly shut down at the request, seemingly, of the Swedish defence forces. FOI site undermattan.com  and leaks site corruptio.blog.com have been closed in recent weeks by their host.
