bedmison writes “In an op-ed in the Washington Post titled ‘WikiLeaks must be stopped,’ Marc A. Thiessen writes that ‘WikiLeaks represents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States,’ and that the US has the authority to arrest its spokesman, Julian Assange, even if it has to contravene international law to do so. Thiessen also suggests that the new USCYBERCOM be unleashed to destroy WikiLeaks as an internet presence.”
Reader praps tips an interview with another WikiLeaks spokesman, Daniel Schmitt, who says they have no regrets about releasing the Afghanistan documents, and says WikiLeaks is “changing the game.” Several other readers have pointed out that WikiLeaks posted a mysterious, encrypted “insurance” file on Thursday, which sent the media into a speculative frenzy over what it could possibly contain.
