U.S. Urges Allies to Crack Down on WikiLeaks

U.S. Urges Allies to Crack Down on WikiLeaks

The U.S. is pushing Britain, Germany, Australia and other allied Western governments to consider opening criminal investigations into Julian Assange, the nomadic founder of WikiLeaks, and to limit his international travels. Obama officials tell The Daily Beast's Philip Shenon that they feel Assange has overplayed his hand, alienating foreign governments that might otherwise be sympathetic to his crusade, and that his quest is a real and serious threat to American national security. The Justice Department is considering a wide range of charges against Assange for his leaking of more than 70,000 classified documents about the Afghanistan war, and they want other countries to do the same—their soldiers are just as much at risk.

Read it at The Daily Beast truth is there is something terribly wrong with this country isnt there?
