If the government wants to keep sensitive documents safe in the furture, they should store them wherever Obama's birth certificate is being kept.

Joking.

Joking.
A "secure undisclosed location"- for Dick Cheney, this was always on the golf course at Teton Pines in Jackson Hole- all the locals knew it because of the sudden influx of armored black Suburbans running up and down Fall Creek Road.

Who is attacking Wikileaks anonymously? - broadstuff

and the counter attack:
Quote:

– The Netherlands public prosecutor said a 16-year-old boy has admitted to attacking the websites of
MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V) in support of WikiLeaks. The suspect, who is from The Hague, will be held in custody for 13 days. The detention comes as the U.S. Justice Department is examining cyber attacks that have been blamed on WikiLeaks supporters.

MasterCard’s website was slowed this week by a flood of traffic in a denial-of-service attack after the company blocked payments to WikiLeaks via its network. (Bloomberg)

I am usually not too interested in things like this, but just happened to see an article on the NY Times - Swedish Police Report - that provided some details on the sex charges that first appeared bogus to me.

"... their encounters with him began consensually, but became nonconsensual when he persisted in having unprotected sex with them in defiance of their insistence that he use a condom.

As previously reported, both women say that Mr. Assange first agreed to use a condom and then refused, in the first instance by continuing with sex after the condom broke, and in the second by having sex without using a condom with a woman who was asleep."

The story looks familiar to me. A political figure is highly regarded by some female admirers. They later find out that he is just a jerk who takes advantage of them. What he does may or may not be criminal acts, but a jerk or ***h*l* he will reveal himself to be and not a hero as they dreamed of.

Oh, when will these naive groupie women ever learn?

I am not a supporter of wikileaks, I understand the Govt (us) needs to negotiate and maybe even lie sometimes. But I did read an interesting article (conservative paper but somewhat liberal columnist) that was insightful in that my CA senator was privy to information (as was the previous administration) that there were no WMDs in Iraq and they knew this clearly.

I just read the article whose link yakers provided above. Something else caught my eyes, and though it really strays from this thread topic, I have to make some comments.
"... released cables that show that our puppets in Iraq and Afghanistan are deeply corrupt and anti-democratic, and that al-Qaida continues to find its base of support not in those countries but rather in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, the very nations we arm and protect."
The US involvement in Iraq may have been a mistake, but the situation in Afghanistan is definitely different. So, the current regime may be corrupt, but it is still better for us than the Taliban. Only the naive idealists would be upset with the choice of a lesser evil which is all we can hope for, most of the time in this ugly world.
