Top Republican calling to designate WikiLeaks a terrorist organization




A top Republican congressman is calling on the State Department to designate WikiLeaks a "foreign terrorist organization," Rep. Peter King, ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, urged Attorney General Eric Holder to prosecute Assange and urged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to designate his group a foreign terrorist organization, in letters sent out over the weekend.

He said that labeling the group a foreign terrorist organization would allow the United States to seize its assets and stop other entities from cooperating with it.

"They are engaged in terrorist activity. What they're doing is clearly aiding and abetting terrorist groups," King said. "Either we're serious about this or we're not."

them a terrorist organization.

on a plane are terrorists too.

for those out there saying that wikileaks is
a Mossad op i urge u to consider this info


Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, called the release "an attack on the national security of the United States." In a written statement released Monday, he said those behind the leak will have "blood on their hands" and recommended legal action.


Lieberman is a dual Israeli/American citizen
and signed a pledge of loyalty to Israel
and even he denounces wikis actions.
Still think wiki is a Mossad OP???

According to wiki part of the USC definition of terrorism is


to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or . . . to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and [which] occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, or transcend national boundaries in terms of the means by which they are accomplished, the persons they appear intended to intimidate or coerce, or the locale in which their perpetrators operate or seek asylum


I guess the leaks could somehow be considered coercion, though coercion to do what I don't know.
Has anyone actually stated the purpose of the leaks, is their any agenda behind them apart from exposing things for the sake of it? Any political ideal behind it?

Apparently Julian Assange wants to relocate from Sweden to Switzerland probably after being informed, before us peasants, that he will be targeted as assisting terrorists and his Wikileaks organization would be considered a terrorist organization. Switzerland would be his best option for safety against the claws of the Pentagon.

This is sure one good way to knock him and his organization down for good, no country wants to be seen as the one abetting a terrorist. Julian is a hero for press freedom as clearly outline in the US Constitution Amendment 1.


Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


The way I interpret this is that our government has officially declared the First Amendment the equivalent of terrorism.

Lol, its still some sort of ministry of truth.

Watch morning joe clip this morning on youtube, even they admit doubts.

The ptb and especially people high up look upto the book 1984, and if they look upto it, surely they take stuff from it.

Wikileaks is just ministry of truth, american style.

nice post boonDOG, ( just kidding, I saw that yesterday)

nice find though, I guess it's going to be really hard to explain this one, even though there are some suspicious events, and or activitys by WK, this is really flying in the face of anyone who would claim that they are a CIA front.

because, if they are, we are in some big trouble!! you know, if they can plan that far ahead to cover this scenario.

S&F for you.

I thought the recent releases were American friendly,to an extent, so whats the problem with Obama now?
Oh I get it they didn't have enough anti American sentiment in them.

This conservative agrees with you.

I don't see how the republican'ts in office can even claim to be the least bit conservative.

Of course it is considered a terrorist organization, but yet they have no legal means to just shut them down.

hmmmmm

well, time to pass the bill to just shut down any website they want, without needing a court order. Very convenient.

For our safety of course.

wow, are you guys watching CNN at the moment???

Hillary is trying to compare this release of documents to a social worker taking info on a molestation case, and the diffuculty they will now have with keeping it in a sensitive manner.

that is quite a stretch, but, you have to give her credit for appealling to the emotions, i mean who could possibly argue with a child victim needing confidentialty.......................


yea, this sure dosen't look like TPTB wanted this, and what ever else is to come????????????

Hillary clinton even admitted that 1984 is one of her favorite books.

Wikileaks is just the ministry of truth american style.

well I just finished watching Hilary Clinton's
speech of wikileaks release

and I find it most suspect that SHE
nor the press even mentioned a single
sentence regarding the UN or the biometric
scans. The very thing in the leaks that
were illegal and she avoided them like
the plague.

get to the meat Hilary !!!

Notice how none of the news agencys are admiting or discussing the insurence file? Thats all thats saving wiki at this time,without it they'd done be shut down. They also admitted they can do it technically,including mirror sites. Wiki better dump it all now except the insurance file before they do shut it down.

As a side note to Washington or any feds,how do you like the patriot act now,hmmmm? You like that? You like all your convo being available,does that feel good? Hypocrits.

Everyone in the US government, both left and right, are up in arms over Wikileaks, they all have dirty little secrets they're desperate to keep swept under the rug.

Next they'll be labeling whistleblowers as terrorists. They've already come pretty close to labeling protesters as terrorists.

I happen to agree with ya.
When the gov does it to us
they call us terrorists

but when somebody does the same thing to them
the person doing it is a terrorist.

By association, doesn't that make
the Gov a terrorist also ???

Obama's speech is up next

What more proof do people need that Dems/Reps sing from the same song sheet? If anything, Reps are worse because of their extreme loyalty to Jewish Extremists.

This really isnt a partisan issue, in fact the article goes on to quote the current administartions Attorney General Eric Holder:

Holder said Monday that the Justice Department is conducting an "active, ongoing, criminal investigation" into the situation. He condemned the leak and said it put national security at risk.


Former Dem now an Ind Joseph Lieberman:

I also urge the Obama administration -- both on its own and in cooperation with other responsible governments around the world -- to use all legal means necessary to shut down WikiLeaks before it can do more damage by releasing additional cables


Dem Senator Claire McCaskill:

urged the administration to go after the leakers "with the force of law."


Like I said this is not a partisan issue. Almost all members of the administration, and all members of the legislative branch surely hold the same views. They wish to avoid any security risk and to limit liabilities.
Reading some of the cables, I dont say that I blame them. I may not agree with them from a personal perspective, but if I were in there shoes I would be doing the same thing.
