What's the next shoe to drop in Wikileaks blackout?

So this is what I am hearing from a source on the shutting down of Julian Assange’s internet connection.

Wikileaks uploaded some files one of which was a video, which showed Hillary Clinton behaving badly.

The leaked video and two to three other files were then blocked by a “state party” from being uploaded through the web blockage.

According to my source the “state party” was an US secret agency. Since Assange is holed up the Ecuadorean Embassy in London is this not an act of war? Since the embassy is considered  to have a special status.

This from the State Department website:

Embassies and consulates abroad, as well as foreign embassies and consulates in the United States, have a special status. While diplomatic spaces remain the territory of the host state, an embassy or consulate represents a sovereign state. International rules do not allow representatives of the host country to enter an embassy without permission –even to put out a fire — and designate an attack on an embassy as an attack on the country it represents.

So now we will see how Wikileaks handles this going forward. The issued statement that the Ecuadorian embassy turned off the internet connection may be factual, but at whose behest?
