CNET News – Congressman wants WikiLeaks listed as terrorist org

The incom­ing chair­man of the House Home­land Secu­rity Com­mit­tee says Wik­iLeaks should be offi­cially des­ig­nated as a ter­ror­ist organization.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the panel’s next head, asked the Obama admin­is­tra­tion today to “deter­mine whether Wik­iLeaks could be des­ig­nated a for­eign ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tion,” putting the group in the same com­pany as Al Qaeda and Aum Shin­rikyo, the Japan­ese cult that released deadly sarin gas on the Tokyo subway.

via CNET News – Con­gress­man wants Wik­iLeaks listed as ter­ror­ist org. Per­haps more inter­est­ing is what Wikipedia’s Co-Founder had to say.

@wikileaks Speak­ing as Wikipedia’s co-founder, I con­sider you ene­mies of the U.S.–not just the gov­ern­ment, but the people.

Sarah Palin of course also had to speak up, but proved she doesn’t have a clue about inter­na­tional law, copy­right and secrecy laws.

Inex­plic­a­ble: I recently won in court to stop my book “Amer­ica by Heart” from being leaked,but US Govt can’t stop Wik­ileaks’ trea­so­nous act?

In short every­body has a reac­tion, over­all mine is Wik­ileaks is a valu­able ser­vice, in no way is it a ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tion. It’s goal does not appear to be sheer destruc­tion of gov­ern­ments or orga­ni­za­tions or even chaos of those same instu­tions. It is an orga­ni­za­tion dri­ven to do one thing pub­lish infor­ma­tion that oth­er­wise might not be exposed to the public.
