Could US military take Wikileaks offline? – Americas, World – The Independent

December 9, 2010 § Leave a comment

As Wikileaks continues to haemorrhage secrets that America would like to keep buried, there has been growing anger amongst Washington hawks asking why the world’s most powerful military cannot employ some of its considerable might to take the whistle-blowing website out.

Former vice president candidate Sarah Palin led the charge today calling on the US military to hunt Julian Assange “with the same urgency we pursue al-Qa’ida and Taliban leaders.” Although most US politicians have avoided advocating the assassination of Wikileaks’ founder, many have begun calling for cyber attacks on his website.

The majority of callers on NPR this morning support wiki leaks and openness. Is there any potential here for climate policy and public opinion?
