Krauthammer: Prosecute Journalists Who Collaborate With WikiLeaks


During a Fox News Special Report panel discussion Monday evening, syndicated conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer urged the U.S. govermment to consider prosecuting "the enablers in the American journalistic community" who "collaborate" with WikiLeaks in distributing classified information.

"I think what [Secretary of State Hillary Clinton] should have said is nothing about the leaks themselves," Krauthammer said. "Simply say we're going to ask the military justice and the Justice Department to try to prosecute the alleged leaker, the alleged guy who stole this, on treason -- not just on mishandling -- but on treason, and to prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law, up to and including execution if that is warranted."
