    Open-ness and honesty mean nothing?
    Or, if we do not know what it is, we just kill it ?
    My own opinion is that we should investigate this with an open mind.

    Now, if WikiLeaks is just trying to force some kind of leverage, that's equally uncool. Honestly, he shouldn't make it contingent. He should just release the information, so that the guilty can be brought to justice.
    Hopefully it'll be the financial institution you have most of your fortune in.

    Not everything needs to be, or even should be, done in the open. People and governments do have both a right to secrecy to an extent, and a need for secrecy to an extent.

    We get people who take extreme views and they seem to dominate arguments like this. Should all of the documents WikiLeaks released be secret? To my eye, no. Some of the stuff probably was kept secret for political reasons. Does this justify some PFC and some foreign guy from deciding themselves that this means they should release it all? Absolutely not. Secrecy laws are not perfect, and are subject to abuse. This does not give random people the right to decide to ignore those laws.

    I hope it doesn't stop with just US banks but European and British ones too if there is evidence of wrong doing, show them

    Like it or not, Assange and Wikileaks are not American, and hence cant be called traitors. As for being a spy... normally you cant be accused of spying on a country if you were never in the country when the supposed spying was done.. it is like being accused of murder in New York while you were in Tokyo, Japan.

    I was not referring to your specific point, I was referring to the aura at which the point was being delivered.

    Yes you can Pete. Remember the cold war? Many Soviet spies never set foot in the US, but where still spying on them(and we got briefings on how to handle being approached when overseas). The US did the same without ever setting foot in Russia.

    Not if there's any financial or personal information in the documents.

    Bank of America. If they have done nothing that would be embarrassing people will simply laugh when the information is released or say who cares and move on.
