Now to all those people saying that WL has relased nothing of importance. It is nice to see an effect for the better. These WLs will release information that is going to remove the worms from the apples.
This is needed and overdue. Lets hope we see some more positive change like this.
If leaks like these keep occuring will individuals and governments change the way they conduct themselves.
I hope so but i kina doubt it...

It was reported yesterday that a Canadian diplomat has offered to resign ahead of anticipated releases as well.

THe story was on the CBC website, pretty vague though.

...resignation? Shouldn't this type of thing be considered treason?

I've been thinking the same thing lately.

The problem is that to charge someone with treason requires an explanation of what treason is.

Given the actions of most politicans lately, no one wants to go down that road.

Treason is very simple; you either support your country or another country. The higher up you are while supporting another country means that you are even more worthy of execution, which (in my opinion) is only worthy against traitors.
