Terrorism Or Freedom Of Speech?

So, which is it?

Wikileaks founder Assange and the New York Times is claiming that the leak of info is not only protected free speech but should be celebrated as good for the country.

Thoughts?

For the first time, I find myself in complete agreement with Hillary Clinton. Or, rather, for the first time she is in complete agreement with me. Sadly, Clinton did not think such behaviors were bad when Bush was at the helm.

If not terrorism, it is providing aid and comfort to the enemy. But Mr. Assange is not an American, and I have seen no effort by the British to bring him to heel. But this is what happens when America pretends that this is no big deal; it encourages others to take up the cause. What cause? Well, the un-American cause.

I do find it interesting that Eric Holder hasn't decided to prosecute Mr. Assange. I do understand why ... it is because Mr. Holder agrees with Mr. Assange. Birds of a feather, so to speak.

A pox on all their houses!

"thoughts"???? You can have a sane thought after reading your post?
GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY..yes, Prof Heldman, the lib from Occidental who's frequently on FOX, said it was good too..."americans need to know we've killed 15000 innocent people in Afhganistan".......

Chuck..there are no words.

Mustang's right; the Obama admin's doing next to nothing; how can they complain when they're with Prof Heldman? God, we're in such trouble.

should be celebrated as good for the country

Hardly!

If [Julian Assange] were exposing Chinese or Russian secrets, he would already have died at the hands of some unknown assailant. As a foreigner (Australian citizen) engaged in hostile acts against the U.S., Mr. Assange is certainly not protected from U.S. reprisal under the laws of war. ... For all of his self-justification as an agent of 'pure' transparency, Mr. Assange is not serving the interest of free societies. His mass, indiscriminate exposure of anything labeled secret that he can lay his hands on is a hostile act against a democracy that is fighting a war against forces bent on killing innocents.

Comment from the WSJ and I concur. Maybe it's time for our weak spineless CIA to put a contract on his sorry butt since it is no longer kosher for them to do their own elimination.

I'm not liking the un-American aspect of this data dump, but we are getting a glimpse into the duplicity of the diplomatic corps, especially those from the Middle East. I see it as an airing of grievances just in time for Festivus ;-)

Mustang, Holder needs to go.

Z,

You can have a sane thought after reading your post?

Yeah, I get that a lot.

I'd like to see his data on these 15000 people killed. I have to wonder if maybe they were killed by their own people like in Iraq?

AOW, that would be a liberal type of celebration

Ticker, if it were China or Russia Holder would really be pissed

Cube, it is fun to see how the Ayrabs are eating each other up

This is hilarious :-) YOU know what I meant!!

And "I'd like to see his data on these 15000 people killed. I have to wonder if maybe they were killed by their own people like in Iraq?"

yes, but liberals don't need the stats; it sounds bad against us, so..THAT WORKS! :-) (grrrr)
