Icelandic MP Claims US vendetta against Wikileaks

Stirling Newberry writes "Icelandic MP Birgitta Jónsdóttir details more of the evidence for what she calls a "judicial vendetta" against Wikileaks, and its volunteers, including attempts to gain access to her twitter account. Her efforts to block the National Defense Authorization have been mentioned by slashdot before. The story was taken up last year by Glenn Greenwald and Wired. As a result the International Parliamentarian Union adopted a resolution on her case.

What's new? She asserts that there is a grand jury investigation into Wikileaks and related organizations, and is calling on Sweden to provide assurances that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange not be re-extradicted to the US."
