1|| If you’re going to reveal a quarter of a million diplomatic cables that one of the most powerful governments in the world doesn’t want you to reveal, you’re gonna need secure servers. Bahnhof AB, a firm that offers hosting on its servers, is housed in a former bomb bunker drilled into the White Mountains of Sweden.

Wikileaks was hosted by Bahnhof when it began publishing the cables. When Wikileaks was felled by a denial of service attack, it briefly moved to Amazon’s cloud servers before it got booted off. Now, it’s back on Bahnhof and back in the mountains.

Here, some photos of Bahnhof’s mountain lair, courtesy of its web site. ||Bahnhof&&
