Can WikiLeaks Damage be defended?

http://www.frumforum.com/wikileaks-d...nt-be-defended

Quote:
Nor is this really about journalism at all. The newspapers were just annotating a broader disclosure available to all, as they might report a train wreck. And just as the train wreck is hardly of public value simply because it’s reported, neither is the WikiLeaks release. Instead, a group opposed to our military’s conduct and policies seems intent on procuring and disseminating our military’s secrets on a wholesale and largely indiscriminate basis, available to our foes and foreign governments alike. We would be horrified if a foreign agent accomplished the same result, and expect our government to seek to stop or punish the disclosure. It’s hard to see why the same reaction shouldn’t apply here.

Thats pretty much the long and short of it ...

The u.s. is way past its prime, the rest of the world has already blown way past the u.s. in terms of quality of life.

At some point its hard to feel bad for the yanks, they bring this suffering on themselves and they are too uninformed to stop themselves.
