The WikiLeaks site is known for giving up the ghost to everyone on the, usually political, wrongdoings of our government and governments around the world. But, the latest papers released from their arsenal of 250,000 different cables between U.S. officials or diplomats and others they’ve spoken with on government and/or political affairs are being made available to the general public via WikiLeaks.
The founder and editor-in-chief of the site Julian Assange is planning to make a major launch of his, potentially, whistle blowing documents to be doled out to the public over the next few weeks. A lot of officials do not like that Assange is doing this and say that he could violate the security of the American people and those abroad with the leak of these papers. Bush even weighed in on this set of documents saying, “It’s going to be very hard to keep the trust of foreign leaders…If you have a conversation with a foreign leader and it ends up in a newspaper, you don’t like it. I didn’t like it.”
But the problem isn’t really with the founder of the site, it’s with those backstabbing bastards who can’t keep a secret! Mouth almighty tongue everlasting. They gave him the info and he’s just passing it along to us. But our prayer is that he’s extremely prudent about what he chooses to put on the website because these printed conversations can really cause some problems. If you go here, you can read about how the site works and see a list of things already published by WikiLeaks. They somehow accumulated these papers over nearly 45 years and launched the first of them on Sunday.
