Comment on The New York Sun:
Wikileaks and Treason

Wikileaks and Treason - December 8, 2010 - The New York Sun

Assange is a citizen of Australia and by his actions against the United States gave aid to an enemy fighting not only an ally of Australia but also fighting his own country. Australia has soldiers engaged in battle while Mr Assange is divulging her ally's secrets. Could Assange be charged with treason in Australia? Remember Rebecca West's "The New Meaning of Treason" regarding the prosecution of William Joyce as Lord Haw Haw? He was executed for treason by the UK because he traveled to Germany on a British passport, even though he was at the time and unknown to himself a United States citizen who owed no duty to England and who broke no American law in 1939 by then going to Germany.
