Greenwald: Hillary Clinton is Internet-Freedom-washing U.S. Policy

BY Nick Judd | Friday, December 9 2011

Glenn Greenwald thinks U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent Internet freedom speech at the Hague is all hot air. He writes that Clinton's speech, which castigates some countries for denying access via the Internet to content threatening to the regime in power, is hypocritical:

What Hillary Clinton is condemning here is exactly that which not only the administration in which she serves, but also she herself, has done in one of the most important Internet freedom cases of the last decade: WikiLeaks. And beyond that case, both Clinton specifically and the Obama administration generally have waged a multi-front war on Internet freedom.
