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 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.
