    Although I really endorse some of the leaks about human rights violations, I think whistleblowers should leak documents more discriminately. The public does not have the right to know EVERYTHING.

    Wikileaks showing us the infamous apache clip was great for example, however I believe the leaking of the diplomatic cables by Bradley Manning can be a danger to diplomacy and peace.

    If you're interested:
    I elaborate on this in my blogpost called "bradley manning promotes war"
