Congressman wants WikiLeaks listed as terrorist group
This is exactly the wrong chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. Someone who has so little sense of proportion regarding what is truly terror and what is not is a dangerous idiot, and should not have oversight to a committee so essential to our security. It’s kneejerk moves like this that endanger our freedoms.
Should wikileaks be stopped or punished? Maybe, but not under guise of protection from Terror by branding Wikileaks as a terror group. Rep. King just doesn’t get it. [yes, wikileaks is endangering people in the mid east and our troops by releasing specific names in some docs, they are not terrorists however.]
Peter King is either grandstanding for political purposes or he’s an idiot who can’t make distinctions between groups who leak embarrassing and even dangerous information, and those bent on planning purposeful destruction and death to innocents. This is kneejerk demagoguery on a Grand Old Party scale, and it’s just another reason on the pile of many that I’m happy to have left the GOP.
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.
