Seems like wkileaks only wants to damage the US. What is his gripe anyway?
I’d like to see some north Korea information. Why doesn’t he leak that .
This goes to show that the leaks through hacked information are an indication of just
how vulnerable the US, as a country is to electronic piracy. We are all vulnerable.
You write: “Why are they doing this? Besides the obvious desire to create havoc and embarrassment for the United States, the mysterious WikiLeaks founder and former hacker Julian Assange has visions of a more globalized planet.”
I think you missed the most obvious explanation: shining a light on the cockroaches that come out of the kitchen cupboards at night. We expect transparency in election contributions and economic matters. Of course we never get it, but at least we have that expectation. But in the realm of foreign policy we don’t even have such expectations. The average citizen thinks secret dealings, assassinations, espionage, betrayals, and scores of immoral, Machiavellian deeds are best left to the professionals and should remain unquestioned.
Many disagree. Screw the “globalized planet” hypothesis. It’s all about transparency.
If the French, British and Russian cables were seized–they would also have been distributed.
“US Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis stated, “Sunlight is the best disinfectant” .
We are the ones paying the price. We need transparency.
