    POINT: Julian Assange Is An Activist, Not A Journalist  COUNTERPOINT: Is Julian Assange Another Pentagon Papers Case? IUbQr

    Welcome to a brand-new edition of POINT -- COUNTERPOINT.  Who is Julian Assange and what is he really all about?  On the point, CNN says that Assange is an activist and not a journalist because of his "work" with Wikileaks.  Alan Dershowitz is asking the question is this another Pentagon Papers case?  Let's dive in and see where these opinions lead.  Here we go.

    The images were shocking but not unexpected – a bedraggled Julian Assange removed from the Ecuadorean embassy in London Thursday by British police after nearly seven years of confinement. The Wikileaks founder had finally reached the end of his long and contentious asylum. And his much-delayed encounter with justice has arrived.

    Assange, Wikileaks and their supporters maintain that Britain, by arresting Assange on a US extradition warrant, is an accomplice to an assault against press freedom, arguing that their work, obtaining and releasing massive amounts of secret data, is not a crime.

    But Assange's claim that he is a journalist is false, as he has proven time and again. That he is not a journalist, however, will not preclude authoritarian governments from using his case to thwart the legitimate media.

    Assange should face justice, but the process will be a perilous one for the free press. If handled correctly by the courts, it should result in the development of a functioning definition of what a journalist is, depriving propaganda outlets and government agents of using the label to take cover – and providing the press with the protection it needs to inquire, investigate and report.

    Assange entered Ecuador's embassy in 2012, fleeing potential extradition to Sweden, where he faced sexual assault charges. Sweden dropped the case on a technicality, but prosecutors say they may reopen that case.

    Before WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange gained asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012, he and his British legal team asked me to fly to London to provide legal advice about United States law relating to espionage and press freedom. I cannot disclose what advice I gave them, but I can say that I believed then, and still believe now, that there is no constitutional difference between WikiLeaks and the New York Times.

    If the New York Times, in 1971, could lawfully publish the Pentagon Papers, knowing that it included classified documents stolen by Rand Corporation military analyst Daniel Ellsberg from our government, then WikiLeaks was entitled, under the First Amendment, to publish classified material that Assange knew was stolen by former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning from our government.

    So if prosecutors were to charge Assange with espionage or any other crime for merely publishing the Manning material, this would be another Pentagon Papers case with the same likely outcome. Many people misunderstand the actual Supreme Court ruling in the 1971 case. It did not say that the newspapers that were planning to publish the Pentagon Papers could not be prosecuted if they published classified material. It only said they could not be restrained – that is, stopped in advance – from publishing them. They did publish, and they were not prosecuted.

    The same result would probably follow if Assange were prosecuted for publishing classified material on WikiLeaks, though there is no guarantee that prosecutors might not try to distinguish the two cases on the grounds that the New York Times is a more responsible media outlet than WikiLeaks. But the First Amendment does not recognize degrees of responsibility. Indeed, when the First Amendment was written, our nation was plagued with irresponsible scandal sheets and broadsides. No one ever described political pamphleteers Thomas Paine or James Callender as responsible journalists.

    It is likely, therefore, that a prosecution of Assange for merely publishing classified material would fail. Moreover, Great Britain might be unwilling to extradite Assange for such a "political" crime. That is why prosecutors have chosen to charge him with a different crime: conspiracy to help Manning break into a government computer to steal classified material. Such a crime, if proven beyond a reasonable doubt, would have a far weaker claim to constitutional protection. The courts have ruled that journalists may not break the law in an effort to obtain material whose disclosure would be protected by the First Amendment.
