    One thing that I found particularly disturbing was that one of our own congressmen had to turn to Wikileaks for his information.  At least there was Wikkileaks to turn to when the rest of the corrupt political system failed us.

    As important as leaks like this are, and the concept of Wikileaks is, don't forget that Wikileaks has taken a turn recently where it has decided to end its redaction of innocent names policy and publish all leaks unredacted. Also don't forget that Assange said himself that if informants die as a result of their unredacted leaks "they probably deserved to die". Assange doesn't care about transparency so much as he just wants to make the world burn. Wikileaks has sold out, and it's time for it to be replaced with a less destructive organization.

      Seriously you need to catch up on what's going on. The password for the file was published and shared throughout the press without wikileakd permission. In turn giving all the names of contracters and other people of importance.

      The justification for wikileaks decision to release those documents unredacted can be found here…http://wikileaks.org/Guardian-journalist-negligently.html

      …with citations, references, and documentation. Wikileaks has time and again laid out their game plan and strategy of free-press journalism for all to see. David Leigh of The Guardian forced Wikileaks’ hand. However, Wikileaks would not allow their hand to be abjectly forced…They took a vote on whether the release of the unredacted cables was a good decision. An overwhelming majority of 100-1 voted in favor of their release.

      Also, I would sincerely love to see where that “they probably deserved to die” quote is attributed to Assange, and if that can be verified. Please provide such a citation, if you can.

      You are mistaken. Short of “selling out” Wikileaks took its actions to the people. Assange wasn’t certain what action would be most prudent in light of the fact that unredacted elements had already been released (not by Wikilieaks, but by Leigh). He let the people decide what seemed most prudent…and the people did.

      If you don’t support free press, you don’t support free speech.

    So the USA wants to take no postion and that is taken as given the "green light" to invade Kuwait.  This silly conspiracy has been swirling around the muslim countries and lefties in the USA and Europe for years.  Ron Paul is a senile old man and shouldn't be taken seriously.

      Perhaps you could enlighten us as to the source of your information.  I always like to read opposing views.

      If the content here was taken from memos that Wikileaks released, and Paul is commenting on it, how does that make it a "silly conspiracy"?

      Do you have other information on his senility?

      My questions were rhetorical, as I did not expect that you could answer them.  Generally, when someone says nasty things but has nothing to back them but their own emotions, they cut and run as opposed to responding in a responsible manner.

      This only bolsters the fact that those that might be in support of Paul are on track.
