Sarah Palin calls on Julian Assange assassination.

A Canadian official, Professor Tom Flanagan, during an interview on the CBS show ‘Power & Politics’, called for the “assassination of Julian Assange”, saying “Barack Obama should put out a contract and maybe use a drone or something to rid the world of Mr Assange”. He added: “I think Assange should be assassinated actually …there is no good coming of this.”  Flanagan concluded the interview by saying “I wouldn’t feel unhappy if Assange disappeared.” Professor Flanagan is an advisor to the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. In her Facebook outburst Palin asked why Assange is “not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?” The former vice-presidential candidate said the Obama administration is showing lack of effort in tracking down the WikiLeaks founder.

Serious Questions about the Obama Administration's Incompetence in the Wikileaks Fiasco by Sarah Palin on Tuesday, 30 November 2010 at 04:17

We all applaud the successful thwarting of the Christmas-Tree Bomber and hope our government continues to do all it can to keep us safe. However, the latest round of publications of leaked classified U.S. documents through the shady organization called Wikileaks raises serious questions about the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of this whole fiasco.
First and foremost, what steps were taken to stop Wikileaks director Julian Assange from distributing this highly sensitive classified material especially after he had already published material not once but twice in the previous months? Assange is not a “journalist,” any more than the “editor” of al Qaeda’s new English-language magazine Inspire is a “journalist.” He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands. His past posting of classified documents revealed the identity of more than 100 Afghan sources to the Taliban. Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?
What if any diplomatic pressure was brought to bear on NATO, EU, and other allies to disrupt Wikileaks’ technical infrastructure? Did we use all the cyber tools at our disposal to permanently dismantle Wikileaks? Were individuals working for Wikileaks on these document leaks investigated? Shouldn’t they at least have had their financial assets frozen just as we do to individuals who provide material support for terrorist organizations?
Most importantly, serious questions must also be asked of the U.S. intelligence system. How was it possible that a 22-year-old Private First Class could get unrestricted access to so much highly sensitive information? And how was it possible that he could copy and distribute these files without anyone noticing that security was compromised?
The White House has now issued orders to federal departments and agencies asking them to take immediate steps to ensure that no more leaks like this happen again. It’s of course important that we do all we can to prevent similar massive document leaks in the future. But why did the White House not publish these orders after the first leak back in July? What explains this strange lack of urgency on their part?
We are at war. American soldiers are in Afghanistan fighting to protect our freedoms. They are serious about keeping America safe. It would be great if they could count on their government being equally serious about that vital task.
