As it stands, it is a crime (at least in the US) for Wikileaks to do what they are doing, regardless of whether or not the US citizens should know. I find this interesting, since it's like there isn't a legal method for things like this to surface in a normal and natural manner. If that is the case, then should the government be hiding all of these secrets?
Secondarily, how far should this go? I mean, we should be under no illusion that politicians are all crooks trying to steal from the middle class to serve the shadowy top 2% overlords. How much of that corruption should be revealed?
