How America Solves Problems

By Taylor Marvin

Sarah Palin (via Andrew Sullivan) on the latest Wikileaks release:

“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?”

Yes, Ms. Palin. A foreign national’s public release of illegally obtained classified US government documents through an international, decentralized distribution network is exactly like someone leaking passages of your book to a gossip site. Hey, why don’t we just sue Julian Assange and be done with it! Now that you mention it though, Iran’s been acting pretty treasonous lately. Why don’t we sue them too? Inexplicable really is the word here.

    While Ms. Palin is overly simplistic. Actions by several governments in the past couple of days seem to suggest that there are other responses to Julian’s antics beyond a lawsuit.
