Jacob Appelbaum, a representative of Wikileaks, has been detained for 3 hours by US agents at the borders after returning from Holland trip. Appelbaum's bag was searched, receipts from his bag were photocopied, his laptop was inspected. Appelbaum reportedly refused to answer questions without a lawyer present, and was not allowed to make a phone call. His three mobile phones were reportedly taken and not returned. On July 31, he spoke at a DEF CON conference and mentioned his phone being “seized”. After speaking, he was approached by two FBI agents and questioned. Recently Wikileaks published more than 90,000 leaked classified U.S. military documents, while in the same time the White House condemned this action as irresponsible and a harm to national security. These documents reportedly reveal hidden details of the Afghanistan war.
