RSF on wikileaks

One of the most sensible things I've read so far about Wikileaks:
http://en.rsf.org/wikileaks-hounded-04-12-2010,38958.html ("Wikileaks hounded", Reporters without borders)

From the text:
We are shocked to find countries such as France and the United States suddenly bringing their policies on freedom of expression into line with those of China. We point out that in France and the United States, it is up to the courts, not politicians, to decide whether or not a website should be closed. [...] Reporters Without Borders can only condemn this determination to hound Assange and reiterates its conviction that WikiLeaks has a right under the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment to publish these documents and is even playing a useful role by making them available to journalists and the greater public.
