Wikileaks again

Evgeny Morozov of the Financial Times says "An aggressive attempt to go after WikiLeaks ... could install Mr Assange (or whoever succeeds him) at the helm of a powerful new global movement able to paralyse the work of governments and corporations around the world."

And Sen. Huckabee apparently wants Mr. Assange executed. So now all that is needed is for Assange to be sent to Sweden by the Brits who seem to be holding him on trumped up charges, and then extradited to the USA and Sen. Huckabee may soon have his wish.

IMO: Well according to Evgeny Morozov those steps might please Iran and China, but they give one no faith in Mr. Huckabee, Sarah Palin and their chums. It is really quite hard to see any logic in their posturing, except in terms of their own personal greed and ambition. Pres. Obama and his wife already seem to be almost continually surrounded by the secret service and they clearly need to be when there are major politicians prepared to state such foolish views. I would think Pres. Obama is most at risk from certain US citizens who are not hard to name.
