The Internet site Wikileaks is under attack again after revealing footage of an American helicopter attacking civilians in Iraq. This week the website has released State Department documents revealing how US diplomats view their counterparts. Now lawmakers are calling on the Obama administration to persecute the site and its founder, Julian Assange, and for Hillary Clinton to name the site as a terrorist organization.
Rep. Peter King, ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, urged Attorney General Eric Holder to prosecute Assange and urged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to designate his group a foreign terrorist organization, in letters sent out over the weekend.
“This is extremely damaging to U.S. troops, U.S. interests and U.S. intelligence,” King told MyFox New York on Monday.
