Huckabee Wants Leaker Executed
Via the Florida Independent: Huckabee calls for execution of person who leaked diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks
“Whoever in our government leaked that information is guilty of treason, and I think anything less than execution is too kind a penalty,” he said in an interview
While I concur that the leaker should be prosecuted, let’s tone the bloodlust down a bit, shall we?
There are problems to be associated with these leaks, to be sure, but perhaps a little proportionality is in order. Calling for executions and declaring Wikileaks a terrorist organization both strike me are overreactions (to put it mildly).
Update: On a related note, others just want Assange assassinated (the guy who runs Wikileaks itself–not to be confused with the leaker).
