Here is the list of the patriotic warriors who have criminalized Julian Assange
1. Candice Miller, Congresswoman
She wants to shut down the site:
“Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are criminals whose actions support terrorists and criminal regimes around the world. It is now long past time for our government to shut WikiLeaks down”
2. Jonah Goldberg Journalist
“Kill Julian Assange” Jonah Goldberg is an editor-at-large of National Review Online and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
3. Christian Whiton Journalist
Here are some of the things the U.S. could do: 1. Indict Mr. Assange and his colleagues for espionage, regardless of whether he is presently in a U.S. jurisdiction, and ask our allies to do the same. 2. Explore opportunities for the president to designate WikiLeaks and its officers as enemy combatants, paving the way for non-judicial actions against them.
3. Freeze the assets of the WikiLeaks organization and its supporters, and sanction financial organizations working with this terrorist-enabling organization so they cannot clear transactions denominated in U.S. dollars.
4. Bill O’Reilly FOX NEWS, Journalist
“Whoever leaked all those State Department documents to the WikiLeaks website is a traitor and should be executed or put in prison for life,” Bill O’Reilly said.
5. Sarah Palin Member of the Republican Party, former candidate
“Hunt down the WikiLeaks chief like Taliban” “He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al-Qaida and Taliban leaders?”
6. Mike Huckabee Politician
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is the host of the number one rated weekend hit “HUCKABEE” on the Fox News Channel
“Whoever in our government leaked that information is guilty of treason, and I think anything less than execution is too kind a penalty,” the Republican said in an interview.
He added that the latest batch of Wikileaks put American lives “at risk.”
8. Prof. Tom Flanagan
Thomas Flanagan is a political scientist at the University of Calgary and a conservative political activist. He played an important role in helping Stephen Harper become Prime Minister of Canada. On 30th November 2010 in a comment to a Canadian television news anchor Evan Solomon of the CBC News Network on live TV, Tom Flanagan called for the assassination of Wikileaks director Julian Assange, suggesting that President Obama should put a contract out on Assange’s life or send out a drone to kill him. Although news anchor Solomon afforded Flanagan the opportunity to retract his statement, Flanagan continued to say that he would not be unhappy if Assange “disappeared.”
9. Rep. Peter King
Congressman, republican, he wants wikileaks listed as a terrorist organization and freeze assets
10. Tony Shaffer
Tony Shaffer of the Center for Advanced Defense Studies, a former Defense Intelligence Agency officer, told Fox News that he would like to see military action against Assange: “I would look at this very much as a military issue. With potentially military action against him and his organization.” (While the Obama administration no longer uses the term “enemy combatant,” it claims (PDF) the authority to “detain” someone who has provided “substantial support” to enemies of the United States.)
11. Rick Santorum
Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania Senato
12. Congressmen Peter King
King Supports Reported U.S. Prosecution Efforts of WikiLeaks Founder, calls to designate WikiLeaks as a Foreign Terrorist Organization
“I am calling on the attorney general and supporting his efforts to fully prosecute WikiLeaks and its founder for violating the Espionage Act,
“WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States. I strongly urge you to work within the Administration to use every offensive capability of the U.S. government to prevent further damaging releases by WikiLeaks.”
13. Congressmen Dan Lugren
“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.”
14. Jeffrey T. Kuhner Journalist The Washington Times
Kuhner: Assasinate Assange
15, Virginia Foxx, Rep. U.S. Senate
“WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s talk about transparency is just so much hot air. It is clear that his agenda is decidedly slanted towards tearing apart U.S. foreign relations and eroding our national security. He is a criminal, nothing more.”
“The federal government must use every means possible to bring Mr. Assange and any other perpetrators of this data breach to justice. Their irresponsible and possibly treasonous behavior has put the lives of our men and women serving abroad in new danger. They must be held accountable for their actions.”
16. Senator Kit Bond, Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee
“It is critical that the perpetrator who betrayed his country be brought to justice for this deliberate treason that jeopardizes our national security.
17. Sen, Joe Liberman Send Brown and Sen Ensigt
Senator Joe Liberman from Conneticut is even promoting ammendments to the Espionage act to prosecute Wikileaks
“Julian Assange and his cronies, in their effort to hinder our war efforts, are creating a hit list for our enemies by publishing the names of our human intelligence sources,” said Ensign. “Our sources are bravely risking their lives when they stand up against the tyranny of al-Qaeda, the Taliban and murderous regimes, and I simply will not stand idly by as they become death targets because of Julian Assange. Let me be very clear, WikiLeaks is not a whistleblower website and Assange is not a journalist.”
19. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY)
“This man has put his own ego above the safety of millions of innocents,” Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) said in a statement. “He should be extradited, tried for espionage, and given the most severe penalty possible.”
20. Marc Thiessen
“Wikileaks must be stopped”
Assange is a non-U.S. citizen operating outside the territory of the United States. This means the government has a wide range of options for dealing with him. It can employ not only law enforcement but also intelligence and military assets to bring Assange to justice and put his criminal syndicate out of business. The first step is for the Justice Department to indict Assange. Such an indictment could be sealed to prevent him from knowing that the United States is seeking his arrest. The United States should then work with its international law enforcement partners to apprehend and extradite him.
