Look, I'll be the first to come to Sarah Palin's defense when it comes to policy issues and if she won the GOP nomination she'd get my enthusiastic vote but, she'd have to show that she knows the difference between domestic law enforcement and international law. This was her tweet about the Wikileaks case....
Inexplicable: I recently won in court to stop my book "America by Heart" from being leaked, but US Govt can't stop Wikileaks' treasonous act?
Wikileaks is based in Sweden and our courts have no jurisdiction there. Nor does Wikileaks founder Julian Assange have to abide by demands by our State Department or the Obama administration to not publish documents. Furthermore, why does everybody keep calling him a traitor and guilty of treason? He's not an American citizen. He's an Australian national living in Sweden. Is Assange a detestable, anti-American a-hole? Certainly, but he's not a traitor to the US. Plus, I doubt seriously if neutral Sweden would extradite him to the US to face charges of espionage. Palin should know this and stop with the phoney populist outrage.
Face it Americans. The fault of this document theft does not lie with Assange. It lies equally with private Manning and others who stole the documents and with the US government who failed miserably to secure them in the first place. If you want to be outraged, be outraged at the breathtaking incompetence of the federal bureaucracy in the State department.
