Ok I am forced to play devil's advocate here. This changes US and world policy forever! The world knew that our hands have not been "clean" for a long time and that Diplomacy REQUIRES deciet and espionage. This is not the responsible way to release this "intelligence" though. it should have al come out at once instead of bleeding us away. as damaging as this stuff is it hasnt revealed so far much of what wasnt inffered if a person looked hard enough.
It is really too bad that we didnt have a strong leader who could take the reigns of power and give the world a constituion like ours this would be an opertune time to do so as the world has unofficially elected us the policeman. The military seriously cannot take down Wikileaks?! seriously?! there are teams of software pirates and hacker groups that i am sure could do at least as much as what has been done so far.
maybe i am wrong in my veiws but our nation was built upon being the best of all political systems known at the time and the most capable to evolve with time and technology. Wikileaks was wrong to release this stuff but all parties involved were wrong to be as dirty dealing as we have been.
just curious

We the people have been privy to maybe .10 percent of what truly goes on in our government. We all know that we are treated as if we were the lowly mail room employee and that the "board of directors" is running the show in the background. We have no control and haven't had in decades. It's all about power and networking, as running the government is truly a large business venture. We place people as heads of other countries in order to make things better for us, no matter the consequences to the rest of the world. Is it really any surprise that we are viewed in the manner (negative) that we are? It's kind of the behind the scenes hostile takeover of another company only this is other countries. And most of us simply don't notice or care as long as we have our weekly paychecks and food on our tables. Now that the economy has gotten to where it is, people are paying more attention to the government and more things are coming to light due to wikileaks etc. Do you truly want a more transparent government? Do you really believe you can change things? Think on it..that is if you dare to. It makes one very nervous..

Like the vast number of stories on US legislation that never mention the bill number or provide a link to the legislation, here we have another story on Wikileaks that doesn't tell you - a citizen, where to access WIkileaks. As of today, it is:

Never a documented case of Wikileaks causing harm to any informer in Afghanistan. Wikileaks, the NYT, Guardian, etc. removed all the names they could. Yet there are mountains of evidence that the US has and is causing the deaths of **hundreds of thousands** in Iraq and Afghanistan. Isn't is odd there's "nothing new", but Obama is trying to capture or rendition the guy?
