Inexplicable: I recently won in court to stop my book "America by Heart" from being leaked,but US Govt can't stop Wikileaks' treasonous act?The tweet was quite dishonest, as Palingates, the European blog that had originally posted lengthy excerpts from the book continued to do so, up until publication. And Wikileaks' publication of the information isn't treason. Perhaps Bradley Manning's actions constitute treason, but not those of Wikileaks.
Palin followed the tweet with a Facebook post, which concluded with this:
Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?Several wags at blog posts on Palin's Facebook post noted that if the Obama administration pursued Assange with the same effectiveness as it has had with Osama bin Laden, Assange would be a free man at least until 2019.
Now, as part of the series of denial of service attacks on a number of organizations perceived as hostile to Wikileaks or Assange, Palin claims to have been attacked:
According to Sarah Palin, those WikiLeaks-allied hackers targeting MasterCard, Visa, and other companies today have also "cyber-attacked" SarahPAC.com and the Palins' "personal credit card information." It's unclear how, exactly, the credit-card information was affected or used, and amazingly, Palin’s staff "was able to move quickly to protect" SarahPAC.com from any harm. In an e-mail to ABC News, who Palin alerted about the attack, she writes:“No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics,” Palin emailed. “This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts.”
Does she have to refer to speaking or writing as "exercising the First Amendment" every time?Of course she does. Just like it took her at least five tries at exercising the 2nd Amendment to bring down one of two caribou she had in her sights on last weekend's TLC farce.
Keeping up on things, Tina Dupuy has just added Assange to Palin's "Enemies List."
And here's another list that's bound to upset Mooselini:
