I have only one question for people who feel WikiLeaks is doing a disservice and is “dangerous.”
If “Democracy” is defined as a free and open society, by which every member of society has a voice, how can a “Democracy” have secrets it keeps from its citizenry? How can Truth ever be harmful to a free and open society that is “of the people, by the people, and for the people?”
The terrorists are not the ones who open our eyes to the destruction our idiotic foreign policy has wrought. The terrorists are the traitors who seek to squelch the Truth because it is incompatible with their beliefs, irreconcilable with their theories, or simply inconvenient.
“One of the amendments to the Constitution… expressly declares that ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,’ thereby guarding in the same sentence and under the same words, the freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press; insomuch that whatever violates either throws down the sanctuary which covers the others.”
Those words were penned by one of the biggest Terrorists of them all: Thomas Jefferson. He had the brass balls to help start a war over injustices he saw, including the suspension of the free press.
