Is WikiLeaks a Terrorist Organization?

    (Nov. 29) -- Journalists have called Julian Assange's WikiLeaks project a revolution in the way news gets to the public. Governments, not surprisingly, are less enthused about the shadowy Australian and his international network of information gatherers, but so far, they've been unable to do much about it.

    Now, with the massive release of classified State Department cables, some U.S. lawmakers are talking about cracking down on the pro-transparency organization.

    New York Rep. Peter King, the ranking Republican member of the House Homeland Security Committee, wants to designate WikiLeaks as a "foreign terrorist organization."

    "They are engaged in terrorist activity. What they're doing is clearly aiding and abetting terrorist groups," King told Fox News. "Either we're serious about this or we're not."

    Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman also wants the White House to get tough.

    "I also urge the Obama Administration -- both on its own and in cooperation with other responsible governments around the world -- to use all legal means necessary to shut down WikiLeaks before it can do more damage by releasing additional cables. WikiLeaks' activities represent a shared threat to collective international security," he said in a statement.

    What are some of the top opinion-makers saying about this latest data dump? Surge Desk's Steven Hoffer compiled some reactions from around the Web.
  2. the punk is goin down

    I notice he has nothing to say about suicide bombers or Al Kaida.
  3. Julian Assange is worse than a terrorist. At least terrorists are willing to fight and die for their cause. Even if I disagree with them, I respect their willingness to put it all on the line.
    But this piece of shit Julian Assange just likes to stir the pot, and you can bet your last buck should the shit hit the fan as a result of his "quest for truth", he'll be feigning horror and disbelief at the violence. He needs to be taken on a one way trip to the corn field.

    Jullian Assanage is an attention whore. He is no different than an attention starved teenage girl with daddy issues showing her tits to strangers on webcam, only instead of compromising his dignity he is compromising foreign relations across many nations.

  7. "WikiLeaks plans to release tens of thousands of internal documents from a major U.S. bank early next year...

    ...Assange also told the magazine that his group has material on many businesses and governments, including in Russia, and that it has some documents on pharmaceutical companies, which he did not identify...."

    it is interesting that Wikileaks chooses to release the info in waves several months after it receives them. what's the reason for this? not to overload people with info?
  8. If he does this to China or Russia he will not be long for the world.
