This isn't a thread about patriotism (I'm Canadian) or conspiracy. It's simply an explanation of why anyone found releasing information to Wikileaks should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

The information contained in those reports had to come from somewhere, didn't it? Well, since any attempt at cleaning the released documents would be torn apart by sites like this one, the information is completely uncensored. Therefore, the names of the informants from who this data originated have been released, along with sensitive documents on upcoming events. This has directly put hundreds or thousands of people at risk of retribution from hostiles. Anybody who released this information is directly responsible for anything that happens to anybody named in the reports. They should all be charged with high treason and locked up. No other nation would put up with that sort of behaviour from its military.

So you would rather NOT have the truth come out? You want everything hidden???

I think the thread title should start with 'My Opinion Is.......

And I totally disagree with you - and I can't even be bothered to explain why, because I think there's no point..

No star or flag from me for this ghastly thread.

I don't expect anyone outside of the U.S. to understand how manipulative our government is.

Can you name one single person this leak threatens? And why should governments keep information secret? Because if people found out that Saudi Arabia is the main funder of the taliban than maybe people would question the logic of having S. Arabia as an ally?

How about the people who hold information away from the American people should be charged with treason?

But it is ok for the governments of the world to put MANY more people in harms way, and then hide the evidence?

Would you have preferred that the holocaust was carried out secretly and was never discovered to prevent harm to Nazi soldiers and personnel?

I did not say the founder should be charged. I said that the people who released the information should be.

I'm hardly suprised that they're trying to nab them with anything they can what with wikileaks stating that the US has its nuclear weapons in the netherlands.
Interesting indeed.
Bringing many well within range?
Also the LHC is not that far away.

I'm also Canadian and I say that this is an eye opener for the "normal people" who are fed constant BS, the citizens who are bound by the red tape that makes up our world. I'm sick of living in a country where I have no idea of what's going on and where questions are often left unanswered. We vote because we trust these people to carry our voices, to be honest and sincere. In a representative democracy these people are not only the government, they are your voice, they are the representation of you.

These politicians betrayed us and now they want to label these people that offered us the truth as criminals? I say that it is the government that needs to be prosecuted for misrepresenting us. I'm wondering why citizens of the US aren't pushing Clinton out, she obviously failed at her job. What are the repercussions to the lies and untold truth? Are you really going to let them get away with this?

No wonder so many people are easily fooled and controlled by their government. They seem to love apathy.

I feel quite the opposite. I believe anyone doing such should be awarded a medal of valor for doing so knowing that upon discovery their life will be ruined. I highly doubt malice was the reason for releasing the information. It seems there are still a few who have a conscience and are willing to sacrifice themselves to get the truth out.

The light has been turned on so let's watch the cockroaches scurry about trying to hide, do their song and dance and see if the smoke machine they like to use for blowing smoke up our backsides is still operational.

I have to disagree with the whole scam about charging wikileaks with treason or those True Hero's that actually had the intestinal fortitude to step up to the plate and blow out the info knowingly placing themselves in harms way to get the info out THAT'S TRUE COURAGE!!! Something a majority of the people on this planet seem to lack or it is completely absent. Want to blame someone look no further than the Govt. and Bankers that is the source for putting lives at risk and countless murders of people all throughout history. See people would not be at risk if these cowards had not done the things they have done nor would anyone have been murdered or imprisoned for life to keep them quiet so the guilty didn't have to admit there guilt. See I am Lakota Sioux from the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation and I live in Russia now with my Russian Wife and family I am no stranger to the corrupt world govts. or the kind of Genocide they commit for there sick agendas. The World Govts. and there leaders and agencies are Criminally Insane and should suffer the same thing as those who have suffered under them if not worse. Their crimes extend beyond humanity...

EPIC FAIL

absolutely not !!!
these sources are very brave
and are true Patriots in
every sense of the term.
Exposing the criminal activities
of a tyrannical government is NOT illegal,
however THOSE committing those criminal
acts should be prosecuted as an enemy
of the state to the fullest extent of the law.

Bradley Manning is NOT a traitor.
The people who prosecute him are.

they hacked their systems. but now they could be charged with espionage, and i'm sure the government is building a case for that as we speak.

I am ashamed to admit at this point that I am Canadian, but then again, I am not like this OP. Some of us want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! Governments have run rampant with corruption along with their corporate fascisti master for far too long hiding behind "national security" to cover their bribes and malfeseance. We need to put an end to this BS. Someone on here said if you weren't in the US you couldn't understand how bad the US government is, well I hate to tell you, they are all bad. I've had experience with the US government overseas including the state department, CIA and foreign branch. I've watched the US sell arms to Saddam in 1988 to invade Kuwait in 1990. I've seen weapons programs go over totally into US hands to cover up nuclear incidents and embargo breaking. I know how bad it can get.

Bring on all the truth!

Cheers - Dave

The world needs thousands of Wikileaks to help keep the people of the world informed of what their goverments are doing in their name. Goverments wont tell you, whistleblowers will.

Claims that wikileaks place lives at risk are never questioned by the MSM and no evidence is ever offered. Similarly,how many lives whistle blowers like wikileaks save is never asked by the MSM.

Whistle blowers are national hero's. They never receive the recognition they receive. Many seem to been suicided or perhaps "uthanased" against their will.

Amazing how claims of national security are never tested.

cheers

Ok. I also am Canadian and totaly disagree with what you're saying. I also ignore why you're so opposed to the truth. I'm not saying that what wikileaks publishes is all 100% accurate but if only 1% of what has been published is correct than we are in trouble indeed. Ignorance is not bliss, you will only be unprepared.
