Pat Austin at one of our Blogs of the Month links to Victor Hanson’s piece on Wikileaks.
Note also that there is no attempt at systematic or coherent leaking. WikiLeaks mostly targets the West. It may now and then leak to us something about dastardly behavior by an African or Chinese bureau or religious sect, but it really does not tend to uncover things about the Russian, Iranian, Cuban, or Chinese armed forces in any way commensurate with its fixation on the U.S. military. It either has no wish to, has no means to, or is very afraid of the consequences — in the fashion of the reaction to the Danish cartoons — should it choose to do so.
VDH is being diplomatic, Pat decides not to dance around the issue
Call me naive, but could someone explain to me how it’s not treasonous when he’s endangering the lives and revealing the secrets and methods of our U.S. military operations?
That’s a real good question, since he is not (to my knowledge) a US citizen then it is not treason per-se, but any serviceman or person in the government who leaked said information is guilty of treason, and should be subject to the hangman.
Mr. Assange is an enemy of the US and should be treated accordingly.
Blunt enough for you?
