If you thought the Wikileaks brouhaha would bring Peter King crawling out of the woodwork then award yourself a prize. America's worst Congressman appeared on MSNBC this morning and called for Wikileaks to be classified a terrorist organisation:
“The benefit of that is, we would be able to seize their assets and we would be able to stop anyone from helping them in any way,”“Either we’re serious about this or we’re not. I know people may think this is a bit of a stretch, but I analogize it as the RICO statute, where they had a pretty narrow definition of criminal enterprise in the beginning, but now that’s been expanded quite a bit to deal with contemporary problems,” King said.
“If we’re going to live in this world, this technological world, where information can be disseminated so quickly, we have to be serious, take firm strong action against those who are putting American lives at risk, because this will put people’s lives at risk.”
“I don’t think we should write it off that quickly and say we can’t do it. They are assisting in terrorist activity. The information they are giving is being used by al Qaeda, it’s being used by our enemies,”
