Let's Go Get the Guy

WikiLeaks should be named a terrorist organization say some American pols, and they're absolutely right. We should be chasing down Julian Assange like he's Osama bin Laden. The passivity of our government on this is hard to fathom.

Congressman Peter King, the incoming chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, claimed that the data breach was 'worse than a military attack.'

'I am calling on the attorney general and supporting his efforts to fully prosecute WikiLeaks and its founder for violating the Espionage Act,' the Republican said.

Sarah Palin is making much the same point about WikiLeaks founder Assange on her Facebook page.

"He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?"
