FLASHBACK: Cass Sunstein Says Wikileaks Was Founded by Dissidents in China and Other Nations (2007)

Cass Sunstein is quite a piece of work in the game. Nevertheless, he's definitely a shot-caller on the Presidential team. Mr. Sunstein's official title in the White House is the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget. That is quite a long, bureaucratic title. Check out Sunstein's background (see: Wikipedia), especially the areas about him wanting to change the 1st Amendment and his opposition to blogs.

Back in 2007, Mr. Sunstein was quoted by the Washington Post saying Wikileaks is a Chinese organization. I do not know if Mr. Sunstein ever rescinded or modified his statement about Wikileaks' founding, but the revelation of Chinese involvement in the current Wikileaks matter would take the release of classified military information to a whole new level., founded by dissidents in China and other nations, plans to post secret government documents and to protect them from censorship with coded software.

Also, what other nations are you referring to Mr. Sunstein?

Time to do some further cyber-digging like I'm playing a game of Dig Dug on a wi-fi laptop at Showbiz Pizza Place in a 1982 time hole.
