Outspoken pro-WikiLeaks activist and former "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson talked about the WikiLeaks founder on "The View" in her first TV interview since visiting him in May.
"You know who puts national security at risk? The military," Anderson said. "How many people has the American government killed innocently, and how many has WikiLeaks?"
"The military has put many innocent lives at risk," Anderson said.
"Oh calm down, sir," co-host Meghan McCain shot back.
"War crimes need to be punished and they haven't," Anderson said. "These war crimes he has exposed -- no one has done anything about it, but they put him in jail to shut him up."
"There is nothing proven that he has put anybody at risk," she also said. "I just think people like Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning are heroes, and [Julian Assange] is a publisher."
"Putin also thinks that," said Meghan McCain.
"He just believes in justice and honesty and exposing governments for what they are doing, and people have the right to know, and there are so many awful war crimes that have been exposed, and his whole intention is to stop these senseless wars. War is a business and it doesn't help us, it doesn't help anybody. And a lot of people, like in France and Canada, aren't happy with America and how they meddle into everybody's business and start so many senseless wars," she said. "He's a publisher and a whistleblower."
"He's a cyber-terrorist," yelled Meghan McCain. "I'm not going to stand by this, it is ridiculous."
