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."


While I agree that the treatment of WikiLeaks is precarious, this would set a disastrous precedent.

If they aren't real, they are CIA. Quite obvious.

If they do classify him a terrorist, the entire list is subject to ridicule.

Amazing that if you lie for 'Merica, you're a hero. If you call em out on their bullshit, you're a terrorist.

As soon as they put Cheney up there with them for outing a CIA agent for personal political gain.

Funny how people's opinion on an issue depend on whether a D or an R follow another's name.

Wikileaks is serving a very good purpose right now. Every now and then, a nation needs to go into the basement and shine a flashlight around, if nothing else then to just scare the rats.

So to the people who support this kind of action. Are you of the mind set that all intelligence actions should be conducted overtly?

Or not at all.

We have a clearly opposite views of what our "intelligence?" community does.
