    Re: Berkeley Mulls Resolution to Honor Army Private Accused of Leaks

    I wonder if Berkley knows that Wikileaks damaged Obama's reputation when it released that his administration was looking for dirt to blackmail foreign dignitaries into signing a climate treaty?

    No, "the mainstream left" is not "considering honoring him;" some bozo on the Berkeley City Council is considering honoring him.

    Frankly, this doesn't surprise me.

    For one brief, agonizing year, I was the confidential admin to Berkeley's City Clerk, and the outlandish issues the locals brought into our office every day were almost as nutty as the fact that the City Council often took them into consideration. For example, not long after I was hired, I had the joy of including the "Long Live Tinky Winky" measure on the City Council's meeting agenda.

    The council members I knew back then were all a bit loopy; apparently this current crop is, too. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

    Do you think that Wikileaks shouldn't have released that information? Don't you feel it has value to you, as an American citizen?

    Well in all fairness, speaking strictly as a conservative..........that's what the mainstream left looks like to us.

    Not as long as it has the potential to harm our boys and girls in afghanistan.

    Psht. The only person it had the potential to harm was a corrupt afghani diplomat and some child rapists. You should read the leak. Seriously. It makes it abundantly clear just how hollow and self-serving these claims of "endangering our forces" are, in practical reality.

    Do me a favor. Risk your security clearance and read it. And then tell me what your impressions are about what happened.

    Value to me and the right thing to do are two wholly separate issues. It's like walking in on your wife having an affair. When she see's you she exclaims "He gave me herpies and you probably have it to." Now, was it wrong of here to have the affair? Absolutely! Was it helpful for her to tell me about the herpies? Absolutely! Does that make the affair ok? Hell no!
