Glenn Greenwald Succinctly Sums Up The WikiLeaks Issue

Posted by | December 9, 2010 19:51 | Filed under: Top Stories

Courtesy of Political Wire, Glenn Greenwald put the WikiLeaks issue in perspective.

“Whatever you think of WikiLeaks, they have not been charged with a crime, let alone indicted or convicted. Yet look what has happened to them. They have been removed from Internet … their funds have been frozen … media figures and politicians have called for their assassination and to be labeled a terrorist organization. What is really going on here is a war over control of the Internet, and whether or not the Internet can actually serve its ultimate purpose — which is to allow citizens to band together and democratize the checks on the world’s most powerful factions.”
