    U.S. nervously awaits next WikiLeaks

    CBC News - Canada - U.S. nervously awaits next WikiLeaks

    The United States government and its diplomats around the world are nervously awaiting the latest release of WikiLeaks documents, more than two million, expected late Friday or Saturday.

    U.S. officials said the documents may contain accounts of compromising conversations with political dissidents and friendly politicians. They also could damage U.S. relations with allies around the world and result in the expulsion of U.S. diplomats from foreign postings.

    The U.S. ambassador to Canada, David Jacobson, has phoned Minister of Foreign Affairs Lawrence Cannon to inform him of the matter.

    .....

    This time WikiLeaks said the report will be on Afghanistan, Russia and other former Soviet republics, suggesting huge embarrassments, as well as classified U.S. discussions revealing corruption allegations against foreign government leaders. That's what has the U.S. extremely worried.

    While no one knows what exactly the documents may reveal, speculation is that another issue that may be exposed is the pressure the U.S. put on other countries to repatriate Guantanamo Bay detainees, including Toronto-born Omar Khadr.
    This is big news in the international relations department and could have widespread ramifications throughout the entire world. On the other hand, if some seedy or unsavoury business has gone down, I support the public knowing about it. Keeping our political leaders accountable is important to democracy, especially now when so many people have had cynical suspicions about the motives of their governments.

    The dirty laundry should be aired so that we can clean house.

    No doubt there will probably be high levels of corruption.
    I await the release with anticipation.

    I wonder if an interesting discussion would be should the US government put an end to wikileaks out of national security?

    No. I admit that this is actually the first time that I have heard of wikileaks but if what I have read of them over the past hour is true then I fully support them. They seem to be intent on protecting those that may come to physical harm in both the war efforts and from prosecution so I have no problem with them.

    There wasn't anything of any real shock released the last time. I'm starting to wonder if the U.S. government isn't just feeding this guy a buncha crap, to keep him occupied.

    Sometimes I question reality itself.

    so if some disgruntled member of the military or government leaked them classified information that was then published causing some of our people to get killed what would you think? I wouldn't lose too much sleep if someone who lost a brother or son because of that took the guy out
