    It's absolutely naive to think that it's a good idea for countries to have huge swaths of their private diplomatic correspondence published.

    I want to get access to the encrypted folder. I wish US all the best in taking it down if it means I get to see the folder
    This of course assumes that there's anything of value in the folder.

    If you know more than everyone else, then it's an affront to your intelligence that the government would dare to keep secrets from you.

    Indeed but I shall never know without seeing inside it which means I need the password and the only way to get the password is to have something happens.

    Oh well.
    Apparently there is also alot of French bashing between the British and American Diplomats ... Heh.

    I can't wait to see if it is true US and UK has been funding even more terrorists. Our countries just do NOT learn does it from history?
    Turkey is going be pissed at us and I don't blame them if it is true we have been funding terrorists against them which have harmed their civilians. Bet we will shove them right into Iran's arms now

    I want to get access to the encrypted folder. I wish US all the best in taking it down if it means I get to see the contents of the folder
    Realistically Turkey knows this already

    The probability that the US has been directly assisting the PKK/PJAK terror groups has been reported already. What this may do is provide US government documents supporting those reports. Not earth shattering just damaging to US public image in Europe, Canada and even within the US.

    I mean how can you be leading a war against terror when supporting a terrorist group that is fighting an ally

    Of course some will say the actions of Turkey of late are not those of an ally to which I will point out that the US support of the PKK predates recent Turkish action that the US has found objectionable with the exception of not allowing the US to use Turkish territory in the invasion of Iraq

    Well, I don't blame Turkey for pulling away from the Western Axis and moving East if all these allegations are true

    It depends on the type of information leaked you are talking about.
    Sure I can understand why releasing diplomat files is so bad.
    But when it comes to Wikileaks releasing documents about civilian deaths and casualties, I think that is very good and support it.

    Whatever the case may be, the further problem with this is that the completeness of the documents is in doubt, so they almost certainly do not provide a complete picture -- though those giddy at the prospect of bashing the United States will certainly treat it that way. And who knows what the Wikileaks asswipes decide to hold back?

    You need a document leak to know there are casualties and civilian deaths during a war?

    No but I want to know when my soldiers are ****ing up and it is hidden and alot HAS been hidden from the public which should have been released such as the fact a British Rifleman shooting dead an 8 year old Iraqi Girl for playing in the street. Oh I'm so sure she was such a security threat. Only after it was made public did the British Military launch an investigation. Bastard soldier probably would have got off scot free

    Wikileaks is something I will support
