I believe that Wikileaks gives the world some insight into how trust and faith is non-existent in politics.
i believe it was the best thing to happen to politics in history. but i'm so disappointed how little people cared and how people believe that the b.s. that mr. asange is a sexual criminal. propoganda at it's best.
Wikileaks makes things more transparent, unvealing information that was never recorded to be published.
But the sheer mass of information published is unstructured and makes Wikileaks already subject to manipulation. Because Wikileaks is not very strong in search assists and information tagging, the "you and me" information consumer has to rely on filtering applied by the media.
Wikileaks is useful but must increase its google-ability to present information unbiased.
i say it has done great job by disposing off hidden politics used by america, how maintaining her hegemony over world.
An ongoing assessment of the fine line between protecting our "National Security" and informing the "General Public".
If an unmonitored or unregulated outlet gains access to and releases vital information to the world with little or no regard for security interests, is this the right thing to do? Sure we all would like to know as much as we possible can about government activities, but should the general public honestly have access to every detail? Even those details related to our everyday security?
For instance,do we really need to know prior to declassification, that area 51 has developed an aircraft with nearly light speed acceleration capability designed exclusively to intercept "Ancient Alien Aircraft" or "Triple AAA's" before they reach the Pyramids for "Disc Re-Charging"??? Not to say we have already developed this technological miracle, but who knows?
I think Wikileaks needs to leave some things undisclosed, particularly if it places people in harms way due to the revelations.
I think Wikileaks is one of the best things that has happened as a result of the internet. In my opinion it is the only truth about what's really going on out there... Are there security problems as a result of it? Yes. And naturally I'm not exactly thrilled about security problems but the blame should be laid on those exposed, not the whistle blowers.
I have mixed feelings, while I think the release of truthful information is usually a good thing & I like to see politicians and Intelligence agencies shaking in their boots, the release of top secret information, can be a real danger to national security, and can put military & CIA personnel in peril.
I think it was a good thing, but they made some bad decisions in what to put out there.
And in the end, what will it change?
It is a good effort, the best so far. But it is difficult to change something so old and firmly manifested as government.
I hope they keep on going and force some real changes. (for the good)
If it's in a good way then I like it but if it's in a bad way then I would say no Idon't
It's the best thing going in our world right now. If someone is ashamed to admit what they are up to, then it's clear that they shouldn't have been doing whatever it was that they were doing. That goes for me, you, and everyone.
I think we need more websites like Wikileaks. Then they can do the job like a community.

Interesting question for Hubbers - do you believe the U.S. government or Wikileaks? And why? Just for curiosity, do you believe what the U.S. government is telling you through the mass media or do you believe what Wikileaks is telling you with their leaks that the government does not want you...

Can somebody, preferably someone who knows the right answer, enlighten me about 'WikiLeaks !' Somebody somewhere knows who is behind all the leaks and yet all the authorities, from the US President downwards, seem to be doing is a lot CYA and apologising to their foreign allies for the...

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/21/opini … odayspaperNational Security can justify anything. What if the president was dying of cancer? If a reporter wrote a story about it then "enemies" would know the U.S. president was dying and would thus possibly in a far out way...

I am utterly convinced that we shall never again see a truly limited government. As power corrupts so does absolute power corrupt absolutely. Our Presidents demand more power. Our Congress legislates new power ignoring the will of the people. Our courts interpret new powers. Sooner or later a...
