WIKI LEAKS Condemnation - Censorship or Protecting National Security

The world media is a buzz with Wiki Leaks and WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange. Wiki Leaks is not a new kid on the block, however, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange has raised the hackles of those in the Whitehouse and beyond with the WikiLeaks release of the Iraq War logs, a detailed diary of the US war mission in Iraq, including statistics on the number of civilians killed by American Troups during the Iraq war.

According to Wiki Leaks, The reports featured on Wiki Leaks detail 109,032 deaths in Iraq, comprised of 66,081 'civilians'; 23,984 'enemy' (those labeled as insurgents); 15,196 'host nation' (Iraqi government forces) and 3,771 'friendly' (coalition forces). The majority of the deaths (66,000, over 60%) of these are civilian deaths.That is 31 civilians dying every day during the six year period. For comparison, the 'Afghan War Diaries', previously released by WikiLeaks, covering the same period, detail the deaths of some 20,000 people. Iraq during the same period, was five times as lethal with equivalent population size.

Since WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange published the Iraq War logs in Wiki Leaks, US Government officials have jumped in to condemn the actions of WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton condemned editor-in-chief Julian Assange's WikiLeaks release of once-classified diplomatic documents as an attack on the United States and its allies. Claiming the Wiki Leaks posting put people's lives in danger, threatened US national security and undermined their efforts to "work with other countries to solve shared problems."

"This disclosure is not just an attack on America's foreign policy interests, it is an attack on the international community, the alliances and partnerships, the conversations and negotiations that safeguard global security and advance economic prosperity."

recent developments in the Wiki Leaks situation have Attorney General Eric Holder launching a criminal investigation into the Wiki Leaks situation claiming the documents leaked by WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange risked the security of diplomats and other U.S. officials. Holder declined, to elaborate on whether the Wiki Leaks or WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange were engaged in criminal wrongdoing.

Among the claims of Wiki Leaks, their postings will "show the extent of US spying on its allies and the UN; turning a blind eye to corruption and human rights abuse in "client states"; backroom deals with supposedly neutral countries; lobbying for US corporations; and the measures US diplomats take to advance those who have access to them."

Many WikiLeaks related searches include a search for WikiLeaks Video. So, for those searching for a WikiLeaks Video, here it is.

Public backlash on the Wiki Leaks situation have exploded and are split between those who feel WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange should be executed and even "be-headed", the more calm simply call for WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange to be charged with Treason and Espionage. And are further going to say the Wiki Leaks site should be removed to protect US National Security. There are even those who are now calling WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange a Terrorist and a threat to US National Security, calling for an immediate Shut Down of the WikiLeaks website.

On the other side of the coin, many are congratulating WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange for his mission to exploit "Government and military corruption." Supporters of WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange, further go on to say any charges against WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange or governmental attempts to Shut Down WikiLeaks would be an attack on Democracy and Freedom of the Press, much inline with book burnings of the Second World War.

WikiLeaks website aside, Twitter and other social networking sites are also abuzz with searched for WikiLeaks, Cablegate and WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange. So whatever attempts are made by the Government to silence WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange or the WikiLeaks movement the WikiLeaks leaked government documents as well as the Iraq war logs are here to stay.
