GOP Congressman Peter King is, of course, outraged at the Wikileaks release of sensititve diplomatic documents. But he's channeled the outrage into a direct request of the Obama administration. He talked to New York City radio station 1010 WINS-AM:
“This is worse even than a physical attack on Americans, it’s worse than a military attack,” King said.
King has written letters to both U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking for swift action to be taken against WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.
King wants Holder to prosecute Assange under the Espionage Act and has also called on Clinton to determine whether WikiLeaks could be designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
