TV Host/Christian Mike Huckabee Calls for Execution of Leaker
The person that gave WikiLeaks 250,000 secret diplomatic cables deserves to die, says Christian/Fox TV Host/Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who is widely thought to be planning a 2012 presidential run.
Huckabee was caught on video at a book signing at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, Calif. saying that the leaker should be executed.
“Whoever in our government leaked that information is guilty of treason,” Huckabee said. “I think anything less than execution is too kind a penalty.”
“They’ve put American lives at risk,” he said. “They’ve put relationships that will take decades to rebuild at risk, and they knew full well that they were handling sensitive documents, they were entrusted and anyone who had access to that level of information was not only a person who understood what their rules were, but they also signed under oath a commitment that they would not violate it. They did.”
“And I believe they have committed treason against this country, and any lives they endanger, they’re personally responsible for and the blood is on their hands,” he added.
