If you're putting someone in danger for that end alone, that's wrong. If, however, you are exposing corruption and immorality, then you have more justification. Should we cover up horrific evil to save a few lives of those involved in an aggressive war?
Fair enough, but the difference is that exposing secrets in this case doesn't expose corruption or any evil. In the case of Wikileaks, Americans finally got access to the truth of how these wars were being conducted.Before I go further, are you aware of why I used The Battle of the Bulge as the example? Please wikipedia it before we go further so that I know we are on the same page. I'm not being sarcastic. I am enjoying this debate and would like to carry it on further.
