To see what happened, with links to relevant statements, see my story below:

Red Faces All Round At Wikipedia Over Wikileaks.de
After claiming the German registry DENIC had deleted the domain name wikileaks.de, it now turns out the problem lies with Wikileaks themselves.

An anonymous reader writes "Contrary to what we 
discussed four days ago, Germany's registration 
authority, DeNIC, did not suspend access to 
wikileaks.de. After some investigation, Heise 
found out that the ISP ended the contract (in 
German, Babelfish translation) with Theodor Reppe 
back in December 2008, with the mandatory 
three-month notice giving him enough time to move 
wikileaks.de elsewhere ­ which he did not do. At 
the end of March, the domain wikileaks.de was released back to DeNIC."

Our truest response to the irrationality of the 
world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
