Wikileaks

Mentioned by both Wolfe and Bovard, here is the New Yorker story on Wikileaks and its founder.

It's worth your time.

And those who claim that not all .gov folks are part of the problem need to answer this:

If the alleged "good guys" aren't leaking to Wikileaks or elsewhere, how do you know that they're "good guys" in the first place
?

Have you seen the Wired article about those videos yet: http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2010/06/leak/

I note these excerpts:

“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,” Manning wrote.

"What seemed to excite him most in his chats was his supposed leaking of the embassy cables. He anticipated returning to the states after his early discharge, and watching from the sidelines as his action bared the secret history of U.S. diplomacy around the world.

Everywhere there’s a U.S. post, there’s a diplomatic scandal that will be revealed,” Manning wrote. “It’s open diplomacy. World-wide anarchy in CSV format. It’s Climategate with a global scope, and breathtaking depth. It’s beautiful, and horrifying.”

Have a good'un.
