I starred your post b/c I hope you're not just talking. If you are serious, trust me, you'd best be very serious.
if I find out that the whole counter intelligence budget was wasted on a roomfull of people who arent actualy good at the job, then I will personaly make more problems for my own government than Osama Bin Laden, the Real IRA and Foot and Mouth disease combined

Regarding needing to know.
If an asteroid is going to strike the earth tomorrow. Yes I want to know.
I dont know where to draw the line.
I think your stepping off the edge.
If you look at any country right now you could erase the US name and enter China lets say and you could say the exact same think.
Where was I again
How about Russia. yup same thing.
Japan yes same
Go ahead and name one and I will point out corruption, drugs bribery and the what not.
It is in every state every country everywhere.
That is life people always want better and they will do almost anything tio get it.
I would not kill someone.
But if they came through my front door and threatened my family well that is another story.
Also , the US particularly are dealing with a government which freely admits that without being able to hide its lies, it cannot operate (Condaleza Rice said as much recently).
But I can tell you that my rights are not being curtailed in any way at the moment...
The contributions are not directly to Wikileaks, because it is not a formal organization, but to a foundation in the Netherlands as a legal support activity for Wikileaks. Linus Olsson stresses that there is no one tried or even indicted in this whole story. - And what Assange is accused for here in Sweden is related to him only as a person, not Wikileaks.
Our attitude is that if someone wants to support Wikileaks with money, we'll arrange it. We should not play cops or enact our own laws.
Julian was arrested because he released top secret and secret information.
I think there already is trouble. Its just that governments & not many individuals are able to see it for what it is or deal with it. For most people "The Information Age" is a catchy media phrase. Some of us read William Gibson & thought "Hmmm... nevermind the cool, this bloke has got a point."
The entire parliment must improve, and by Jesus do thier jobs PERFECTLY from now on, or there will , eventualy , be trouble.
Correction, cannot function without its secrets, not lies. There is an important difference. You would be a fool to play poler if everyone could see all the cards in your hand.
