Suppose I leaked out a copy of a memo from your secretary to you that you need to call your doctor, your test results came back positive.
Now while we don't know which test results came back, or positive for what... I really don't think you want the world to know, let alone the cute hot receptionist on the floor. I mean... what sort of conclusions could she come to when she hears about that leaked memo.
And that's exactly my point.
Its not a question about Democracy in action, but that taken out of context, private memos and communication between governments can be misleading.
If you think of politics in simple terms, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn that I want to sell you.
You could easily make a fortune on tolls.... ;-)
