US Senator Joe Lieberman suggests New York Times could be investigated

"A leading US senator suggested tonight that the New York Times and other news organisations publishing the US embassy cables being released by WikiLeaks could be investigated for breaking American espionage laws.

Joe Lieberman, the chair of the Senate homeland security committee, told Fox News: "To me the New York Times has committed at least an act of, at best, bad citizenship, but whether they have committed a crime is a matter of discussion for the justice department."

Lieberman also said that the department of justice should indict Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, under the 1917 Espionage Act and try to extradite him from the UK."

Another Joe

There is precedent. Another Joe, namely Joe Stalin, had the publisher of Pravda hanged.

I think Assange should join AIPAC

Then he would be jailed for a short amount of time and a California congress woman would assure his release,even if he was charged with espionage. I love the fact that the powers that be are attacking their allies in the media, as most politicians that attack the media in the past have learned it is a very bad idea. If LIEberman continues his assault I see the media pushing constitutional 1st amendment issues to the public, which would be a great thing.

Always remember:

If they hate us for our freedom, they must LOVE us now....

Stay IRATE, remain TIRELESS, an

McCarthitism and

McCarthitism and Nazism.

There is a simple reason for this - the justice system is broke and the "conspiracy" as Assuange puts it doesn't feel threatened. When crooks don't feel like exposing their crimes will put them in jail, they get more open about it. This is, fyi, a flaw in Assuange's reasoning. Reprisal for crimes exposed *has* to be there, or his plan doesn't work. The people *have* to do something.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Is He Nuts?

Why would it be a crime for citizens of other countries, operating in other countries, to publish whatever they want to publish? Fiction, fact, or whatever?

The US has no jurisdiction.

If it did, how is telling secrets considered spying? I thought spys were supposed to keep secrets?

He's kinda confused.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Remember the closing reel of Animal House? Which one married the cheerleader and became a senator?

I suggest that Senator Joe

I suggest that Senator Joe Lieberman be investigated for breaking his oath to the Constitution. The only problem is, we already know that he has made a career out of breaking his oath, and who is going to investigate him? How many in Washington actually take their oath seriously?

The terrorist threat is a direct result of failing to obey the oath to support and defend the Constitution. Our own politicians created the terrorist threat. And now they use that threat to undermine the Bill of Rights.

We could find he's done way sleezier

than just being anti Constitutional. Joe Blow thinks that's boring. I'm sure Amazon could release those communications he sent them.

Educate the man

Lieberman has forgotten what freedom of press is, democracy, questioning authority etc.
His history as a politician tells me he is another power broker and desires us as slaves. A sad little man.

When Lieberman

quits working for Israel and starts becoming an American, then I might start paying attention to anything he says.

Until then, he's much worse than what he accuses the NYT of being.
I think Lieberman should be investigated for being an Israeli agent.

Is it the Homeland Security Committee or..

the Fatherland Security Committee?

how about shutting down all independent newspapers just like Nazi Germany did.

Let's have one government newspaper and one state TV channel and we can have our own version of North Korea.
