Holder's Cowardly Assertions

Mr. Holder, the only difference between Wikileaks and your "various news organizations" is that the latter don't make a point of being against your senseless wars and have little motivation to uncover your corruption. On both counts Wikileaks does. I suppose that makes them some kind of "terrorists" in your eyes.

Keep it up boys, this will play well with the pro-war red neck republican crowd that didn't waste one vote on your sorry asses in the election. Good strategy. I suppose a couple of cowardly yuppies will also be pleased.

From Businessweek

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said this week there is "an active, ongoing, criminal investigation" into WikiLeaks' release of the material. He said it jeopardized national security, diplomatic efforts and U.S. relationships around the world. He declined to equate WikiLeaks to traditional news organizations that enjoy certain free-speech protections.

"I think one can compare the way in which the various news organizations that have been involved in this have acted, as opposed to the way in which WikiLeaks has," Holder said. He did not elaborate on the distinction he sees between WikiLeaks and the publications.
