    Congressman wants WikiLeaks listed as terrorist group

    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 presumptive 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.

    "WikiLeaks appears to meet the legal criteria" of a U.S.-designated terrorist organization, King wrote in a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reviewed by CNET. He added: "WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States."

    Hopefully Obama will ignore such a psychotic suggestion.

    I wouldn't call them terrorists but those who leaked info to them should be tried for treason or some other crime and then executed.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I liken them to more like reporters. They accept reports from sources. I don't think that they actually go out and hack the info directly from the US's database or something like that. So if they are "outlaws" then so is every other reporter who would report any such leak in the news if it came to them instead.

    They are no different than someone who knowingly buys stolen property.Probably worse because they encourage the traitors to leak classified info to them.

    Really? So what if someone leaked info to MSNBC or FOX or some other official news agency? Would they be considered the same by you?

    If you knowingly air classified information then you are no better than the person who leaked it. It doesn't if you call yourself a journalist, web site operator or a spy.

    What poppycock. News people doing thier job does not mean that they are just as bad as the people who originally leaked the info. What happened to freedom of the press? Tell me...what was your stance on the body scanners in airports again? And why is it that you believe that?
