    It's kind of sad that we need hacktivists and wikileaks to force government transparency. Our governments should be more accountable by default.

    Yes it does. However, that does not give ANYONE the right to break into classified documents and make them public. Especially not knowing who and what might be put in danger by the publication of those documents.

    And the proper, non-terrorist method for dealing with such people is included in the Constitution...you vote them out of office.

    You DON'T attack our government.

    The government has continued to erode our rights, especially regarding our right to trial. I'm glad someone has the balls to stand up to them, because most of us don't.

    When nearly every politician is this way, that's not really an option. Everybody makes big campaign promises and then when they're elected just does whatever they want. Those who actually are trying to do the right thing are stonewalled.

    But hey, next time you're at the ballot box, be sure to pat yourself on the back for how much you're fighting government corruption by picking the right candidates.

    Until they show the balls to go after China with all the dirty laundry they have, they are just cowards going after a target they know they can hit to look good.

    Selective activism is little better than selective outrage and thats about what this is.

    No offense but there are a lot more crappy places they could be targeting with much deeper civil and human rights violations.

    Yeah, but I, like them, don't really give a **** about other countries right now, I'm worrying about what our government is doing to us. Sorry, it's just a matter of priorities. When we get our **** together we can start worrying about other people.

    Is Anonymous just an American thing? Or do they operate more in the US as opposed to China because they have the freedom to do so without disappearing here?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    It's a worldwide organization. And did you really just suggest that the US government doesn't make people disappear who they label as terrorists?

    Good thing our American constitutional freedoms give them the power to hack the government and release files. That must be why they're so attracted to America. What a sheltered world you must live in.

    Sorry to disagree, but of the TWO treasonous things the hackers or the government the government is most dangerous and should be the ones delt with harshly. I am sorry but if my government is doing unlawful or heinous things I need to know about it so I can organize to put a stop to it. The unfortunate inocents that may be revieled in the documents where screwed by the government in their actions. I also disagree with you on the right to take classified documents public. If the public interest is best served by making them public then they need to be public regardless of how they got that way especially if those documents bring to light actions by the government doing things they are not authorized to do. Secrecy is how this government gets around its masters.
