Dick Cheney’s daughter, Liz Cheney wants the government of Iceland to stop its Wikileaks support. Iceland passed its “law on press freedom and protection” in June. These laws are thought to be the world’s strongest dealing with press and whistle-blower protection.
Liz wants U.S. President Barack Obama to put his pressure on the Icelandic government to stop supporting Wikileaks. Liz wants to see President Obama take the initiative and ask the Government of Iceland to close the Wikileaks site and if the Icelandic government does not want to close it, then he should take the lead and close it himself.
“Our Government should make sure that Mr. Assange, Wikileaks founder and spokesman, never gets a U.S. Visa – He has blood on his hands” Liz Cheney said.
She didn’t stop there. She went on to say: “What he’s done is very clearly aiding and abetting al Qaeda. And as I said, he may very well be responsible for the deaths of American soldiers in Afghanistan,” she concluded.
She made these remarks while being interviewed on the Chris Wallace talk show on Fox News last night. Liz Cheney has been very active in working for the Republican Party in the U.S. and works at the Interior ministry. Her father, Dick Cheney, was a strong advocate for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq while serving as vice president under George W. Bush.
Last week Wikileaks unveiled tens of thousands of pages showing confidential information related to the war in Afghanistan showing that the war appears to be going worse than previously thought. In her interview Cheney said that this was an attempt by the Wikileaks founder to change the U.S. Policy towards the war in Afghanistan.
IceNews was not able to get any comments on this news from the Icelandic Prime Minister’s office or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs due to a national holiday in Iceland.
