Another well-known conservative is coming to the defense of secrets outlet WikiLeaks.
In a recent essay, Jack Hunter at The American Conservative magazine argued that fellow conservatives should consider supporting WikiLeaks because limiting and challenging government power was the founders' intent and "these have always been core conservative principles."
At the end of November, WikiLeaks began publishing over 250,000 secret US State Department embassy cables. Though the world's media has been consumed with reporting on the trove of new data, approximately 1 percent has been released thus far, and most of it by professional news outlets.
Conservative public figures like Sen. Mitch McConnell, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, and Rep. Peter King have compared WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to a terrorist.
