Graham: Prosecute WikiLeaks

Thursday, 29 Jul 2010 09:55 AM

 


Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has called for the criminal prosecution of Wikileaks, the website that published classified military documents, according to a report by the hill.com.

Graham called for the prosecution of Wikileaks itself -- and not just the source of the leaks.

“I’m willing to prosecute anybody who led to undermining the war effort,” Graham said to Fox News. “As far as I know, there’s no immunity for a website to be able to pass on documents.” 

Wikileaks  published classified military documents detailing suspicions that some within the Pakistani government were in collusion with the Taliban.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., have called for the prosecution of whoever leaked the documents, but  not for prosecuting Wikileaks itself.

McCain said this week that whoever leaked the documents to the website should be sanctioned with a life sentence.
