Is WikiLeaks a Terrorist Organization? Rep. Peter King Thinks So
Now, with the massive release of classified State Department cables, some U.S. lawmakers are talking about cracking down on the pro-transparency organization.
New York Rep. Peter King, the ranking Republican member of the House Homeland Security Committee, wants to designate WikiLeaks as a "foreign terrorist organization."
"They are engaged in terrorist activity. What they're doing is clearly aiding and abetting terrorist groups," King told Fox News. "Either we're serious about this or we're not."
Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman also wants the White House to get tough.
"I also urge the Obama Administration -- both on its own and in cooperation with other responsible governments around the world -- to use all legal means necessary to shut down WikiLeaks before it can do more damage by releasing additional cables. WikiLeaks' activities represent a shared threat to collective international security," he said in a statement.
