It is treason to call WikiLeaks treason

Wikileaks Liberty For All
by John Jay Myers  

"Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press. Now get over it. You might believe some speech gives away national secrets, for instance how we prop up puppet dictators in foreign countries, or how we have been training troops who are now turning against us in droves, or how we are supplying billions of dollars to countries who supply those who want to attack us, or how we back companies that supply men with young boys for sex slaves in Afghanistan, or how the leaders of the countries we manipulate are now scared that we aren’t bombing Iran.  Surely no one should become privy to this."

Brad Manning has rights!

by Karen Kwiatkowski  

"Charged but not convicted of any crime, American airman Brad Manning is being held largely incommunicado at Guantanamo, without bedding or permission to exercise in his cell. He is purposely deprived of human contact. His current treatment -- based on unproven charges -- is far harsher than the treatment and sentences of four famous and convicted US federal-level spies."

Wikileaks on Cuba: US undermines dissidents

December 19, 2010

Antiwar.com Antiwar.com
by Justin Raimondo  

"The WikiLeaks revelations continue to pour in, the latest including revealing material on the intimate and always troubled relationship between Cuban dissidents and the US government. Most of the attention has been given to a cable that characterized the dissident movement as being old, tired, and out of touch, with little support inside Cuba. Far more interesting, however, is a 2006 cable detailing a visit to the US Interests Section in Havana by two dissidents, whose names are redacted -- but not consistently." (12/20/10)

Beware the campaign for war against Iran

Future of Freedom Foundation Future of Freedom Foundation
by Sheldon Richman  

"Despite the horror with which the war party has received the WikiLeaks dump of secret diplomatic cables, at least some of the revelations were cheered. Those who have been agitating for an attack on Iran were pleased to see cables apparently reporting that the heads of Arab states also favor war." (12/17/10)

Wikileaks and the Free Press

Wikileaks CounterPunch
by Saul Landau  

"US officials routinely declare commitment to a free press -- except when someone uses it to reveal unflattering information. Ironically, members of the media critical of Wikileaks also think the government should protect us by not sharing 'classified information.' Those two words often alert us to some bureaucrat is covering his ass by barring the public from knowing of a possibly illegal act." (12/18/10)

Things we shouldn’t have had to learn from WikiLeaks

December 19, 2010
posted by

Wikileaks Orange County Register
by Alan Bock  

"There have been expressions of alarm over the possibility that the release of diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks could endanger Americans and others, notably human-rights activists in other countries, leaving WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange 'with blood on his hands.' To date, however, the government has not described a single instance of a life being endangered, or even of a diplomatic initiative threatened, by the document dumps -- which you know it would do if it had a credible example."

Libertarians need less strategy — and more principle!

Self-Sovereign Individual Project Self-Sovereign Individual Project
by Paul Wakfer  

"I can only wonder where are the principled people of action today -- the Paul Reveres and the Patrick Henrys ('Give me liberty or give me death!')? In fact, as of the date of this article I know of no other website, libertarian or otherwise, which has removed donation links to PayPal and/or credit cards in support of WikiLeaks. This lack of inaction to implement strong ostracism of all companies refusing to provide services to WikiLeaks makes it very clear that among those calling themselves libertarian, particularly among the free marketers and Miseans who still retain their Amazon links, the principled are damned few and far between at the present time!"

Pentagon defends treatment of WikiLeaks suspect

December 18, 2010
posted by

Wikileaks Christian Science Monitor    

"The Pentagon pushed back Friday against news reports that accuse the US military of mistreating [Bradley Manning], calling the allegations 'blatantly false.' ... The Pentagon denies that Manning is being held in solitary confinement. ... '[J]ust being in a cell by yourself doesn’t constitute solitary confinement,' says Col. Dave Lapan. 'He is surrounded by other people' in adjacent cells .... Manning can watch television for one hour per day and read newspapers, military officials say." (12/17/10)

Campaign against Wikileaks is lawless

posted by

Cato Institute Cato Institute
by Gene Healy  

"Anyone who values the First Amendment ought to oppose the campaign to 'get' Assange by any means necessary. In a free society, you can't just 'change the law' to persecute someone you don't like, and you can't abuse your position to silence speech you oppose." (12/14/10)
