So the question is not whether WikiLeaks broke the law or not; the question is whether it’s treason, and on a more abstract level whether it’s in our national interest for them to expose the weaknesses of our own intelligence systems.
Who left the front door open, anyway?
Should we shoot the messenger? I mean, if WikiLeaks can break in to top security, why can’t al Qaeda? Should we know whether it’s possible for terrorists to get in?
The difference, I suppose, is that WikiLeaks published the stuff; and what’s worse, embarrassed people who aren’t paid to feel embarrassed. And, oh yes; exposed other crimes, allegedly by our own government.
Al Qaeda is sneakier and will not do us any favors; they will not publish it to let us know they broke in.
