Have you heard about the newest mass of documents WikiLeaks has released this week? I'm sure you have, and I'm shocked. I am siding with the government on this. A lot of that information should not have been released to the public, because it could harm a lot of innocent people. I just read on CNN today that one of the documents released stated that China was getting tired of support North Korea, and thinking it was a "spoiled child," and with the current situation over on the Korean peninsula NK could react very negatively and this could explode to a whole lot bigger of a mess than necessary.
What also is making me irritated is the creator of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, is thinking he is some sort of hero now; saying he has documents that can tear down a US bank and thinking he is doing a public service by releasing thousands of classified information which could end up in bloodshed. This guy needs to realize that he is not doing a great thing, more like a reckless thing and that many people are upset with him.
Yes, people deserve the right to know what their government is doing and I agree with that; but releasing information that could cause more harm then good is not my idea of a public service. You have to weigh the costs with the benefits when it comes to something like this, and I feel that the costs are way more pricey than the benefits.
Disagree if you want, it's a free world on the internet, well hopefully. But that is another story.
