Wikileaks is said to plan to release hundreds of thousands of sensitive U.S. State Department embassy cables this week. In some regards the release of the classified information resembles an act of war against the United States, or minimally a hostile intelligence action destabilizing to international relations.
Julian Assange, a founder of Wikileaks previously denied having State Department cables (in July of 2010. In January 2010 a classified cable from the U.S. Embassy at Iceland was published at Wikileaks revealing U.S. policy information about the financial crisis.
Law protecting confidential sources should not protect the Internet media categorically, unlike the priestly confessional. The news media has absolutely no inherent rate to endanger state security, nor subvert the proprietary political works of elected government officials and federal agency employees.
Hostile foreign intelligence operations do not become less inimical to the defense of liberty when they publish on the Internet. Media fences of stolen and purloined intellectual capital at Wikileaks or al Qaeda should be prosecuted by the Justice Department, if their plans for capture are not leaked.
Wikileakâ€™s active assault upon U.S. Security through revealing hundreds of thousands of pages of information not available to the public at the Departments of Defense and State may seem to appeal to popular Bush II bashers from the last administration. The information may also attack the security of Hillary Clintonâ€™s State Department and provide enemies of the United States with too much of an insight into U.S. national interests, as well as sew discord between allies.
Globalists may believe the assault on the security of U.S. Government communications by foreign agents will advance their agenda. A rectification of U.S. economics to a low entropy environmental foundation may be the best way to combat hostile foreign intelligence agents and perfidious anti-nationalist politicians as well.
