Incoming GOP Rep. Allen West: News Outlets Publishing WikiLeaks Should Be Censored

During an online radio interview last week, newly-elected Florida Republican Allen West called for the censorship of media outlets publishing information obtained by WikiLeaks.

In the interview, which aired on Dec. 7 on blogtalkradio’s “African American Conservatives” program, West rails against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. He also says he holds the American media partially responsible for the publication of classified information.

The comments were first flagged by ThinkProgress’ Lee Fang. You can listen to the full interview here, and the relevant portion here.

“Regardless of whether or not you think this really does cause any harm, the fact [is] that, here is an individual that is not an American citizen, first and foremost, [who has] for whatever reason gotten his hands on classified American material and has put it out there in the public domain,” West said, speaking of Assange.
