From everything i've seen wikileaks expose none of it would seem to be anything anyone else couldn't of also seen.
It's said that these documents have such security methods on them that you would pretty much have to access each item separately and that it would be a noticeable request.
For such mass amounts of information to be obtained who-ever revealed it surely
#1 wasn't the only one
#2 was authorized to do so
or a combination of 1 & 2.
All i've read has been information that is embarrassing to government officials. Of course governments want to keep information that's going to embarrass them from public view but they shouldn't use "national security" to do so.
If I have a tape I made with my girlfriend years ago turn up on some website im not going to use national security as a reason to get it taken down however if I was in government I guess I could.
These governments we have are operating more like the corporations for which they serve rather than organizations put together by the people and for the people.
Sure people disagree with what wikileaks did because the government owned media is telling them what they should know. You also have a large percentage of people living off the government.
When your an idiot or living off the government (or both) of course your going to take the side of government.
Good for wikileaks, they haven't done anything wrong, they haven't killed anyone.
It's government that has and they want to make sure they can continue doing so with not only immunity but also without anyone knowing about it.
It's government who is putting themselves in the embarassing situations 'such as name calling' that they want to hide instead of acting like adults.
