What began as an interesting exercise in the freedom of information has now become a fiasco: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/nov/28/how-us-embassy-cables-leaked This is no longer just about Iraq or Afghanistan. There can be no doubt now that Asange and his cohorts seek to completely undermine the United States and cripple its ability to function abroad. "Hillary Clinton and several thousand diplomats around the world are going to have a heart attack when they wake up one morning and find an entire repository of classified foreign policy is available, in searchable format, to the public ... Everywhere there's a US post, there's a diplomatic scandal that will be revealed. Worldwide anarchy in CSV format ... It's beautiful, and horrifying." What their reasons are, I do not know, but this has become unconscionable, in my opinion. Governments cannot govern or conduct policy if they have no ability to confer in private and safeguard certain information and opinions.
