Clinton Should Resign For Ordering U.S. Diplomats To Espionage in UN

James Ball said in an interview with The Telegraph ( here on You Tube) that with only a fraction of the 250,000 papers held by the site so far released, journalists across the world will be kept busy for months by the revelations.

The first tranche of more than 250,000 classified cables released by the WikiLeaks site says American officials were also told to spy on the United Nations’ leadership and get biometric information on its secretary general Ban Ki-moon.

The Obama administration had a record of arresting whistle-blowers and had become a regime that doesn’t believe in the freedom of the press and doesn’t act like it believes it”.

The US Attorney General, Eric Holder, said there was an “active and ongoing criminal investigation” into the release of classified US documents.

Robert McClelland, Australia’s Attorney General, began a separate investigation into whether WikiLeaks had broken laws there by releasing the data.

In his statement, Mr Assange, chose not to answer suggestions that he had put lives at risk with the wholesale release of diplomatic dispatches, but said President Obama’s administration was trying to make it as hard as possible to publish the information in a responsible manner.

The founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange is calling for the resignation of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Clinton should resign if it can be shown that she was responsible for ordering U.S. diplomatic figures to engage in espionage in the United Nations, in violation of the international covenants to which the U.S. has signed up.”

According to one of the documents, Clinton asked for U.N. personnel’s telephones, emails, credit card details and frequent flyer numbers.
“Biographic and biometric information on U.N. Security Council permanent representatives,” China, Russia, France and Britainwere also called for, according to the documents.
