Bring Me the Head of… Julian Assange?

November 30, 2010

 

The best I can say about the intelligence breach that is Wikileaks, and the President’s poor performance regarding this third massive classified document dump, is to quote Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection, who correctly identified the type of letter that should have been sent to Julian Assange:

Dear Wikileaks,

If you publish any more material we will hunt you down no matter the cost, and you either will be killed while resisting arrest or you will spend the rest of your lives in solitary confinement in a Supermax prison, where the highlight of your day will be 1 hour spent in a cage instead of your cell.  Don’t look up, that sound of propellers in the air is not a Predator drone.

Sincerely,
Harold Koh

Of course, that was not the letter that was sent. Instead, Mr. Koh sent a sternly-worded missive with threats of swift retribution pathetic plea to Assange to return the documents because publishing them would be bad.

If this weren’t so dangerous to our national security, it would be a joke, which is what America is swiftly becoming in the eyes of the world. We need to address this breach with authority and swift justice. Now.

Or as commenter “turfmann” at Legal Insurrection wrote:

“…I am quite sure that a certain housewife from Wasilla, AK, should she have been president right now, would find this SOB herself if need be. She could hunt him down, dress him in the field, put his antlers on the wall of the Oval Office and we could all watch it on The Learning Channel, Sunday night at 9:00. No facebook post would have been necessary.”

I could live with that.
