Are Wikileaks acting in the public interest by making known to all and sundry what was private / classified information, or are they being irresponsible and unpatriotic? New revelations are coming out by the hour: China is apparently ready to abandon its support for North Korea, US diplomats have been less than impressed by some aspects of Britain's involvement in Afghanistan, the US government has been put under pressure by some Middle East countries to bomb Iran, and less than flattering opinions about successive British Prime minister's have been expressed. Seems the info about China / North Korea couldn't come out at a more sensitive time. The Chinese do not "wash their dirty linen in public" and will not appreciate this leak being made public. They will not take kindly to US Naval exercises in the Yellow sea either. The question everyone is left with is this, "How can I trust a US diplomat again?" Every diplomat in the world will be asking this and tension between nations will be higher than ever. And what has happened to US security? All this info was apparently downloaded by one army private. If he could do it, how many other people could have or maybe have already done it?
