After 3 months working on our story, USG today suddenly began making new last-minute claims which we intend to investigate before publishing
The only thing worse than power tripping spooks is power tripping leakers who don't even have the perspective of the people they're burning with the leaks. Release it because releasing it is the right thing to do, if that IS how they feel. Don't release it in a competition to out manipulate the manipulators. It's not only foolish beyond words...it makes the leakers no better than the scum the info was stolen from. Worse...really. The spooks can always say manipulating people and events is their job. The leakers have to explain how doing the same thing is somehow justified for whatever "ends" they seek. I'd respect the ENDS of public knowledge. I can't respect the ENDS of reformation of world events. That's a GOD complex that makes them as ugly as anything in the world.
