In a recent letter to the U.S. Treasury, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has demanded that Tim Geithner place Julian Assange and Wikileaks on the government's list of Specially Designated Nationals, thereby making it illegal for any American citizen or American company to do business with them or to provide them with funding. The list includes international drug dealers, black-market arms dealers, terrorists and the like. Obviously journalists who threaten Bank of America should be included as well.
As far as I can tell, additions to the list are solely at the discretion of the Treasury Secretary.'
