WikiLeaks is a publisher — a new kind of publisher, but a publisher nonetheless — and that makes this a freedom of the press issue. Like it or not, WikiLeaks is fundamentally a journalistic entity, and as such it deserves our protection.
This is the crux of the issue. People who would choose to obfuscate the debate with calls of terrorism and leglate against it as such, demonstrate a fundamental misunderstanding of how the internet operates. I’m talking @you, Lieberman. Whatever happened to your crusade for the rights of average citizens? Oh, I almost forgot – you’re now at the reigns of the Homeland Security department, and as we all know, power corrupts.
Woe for Joe. Woe for America.
