    If he took the care to protect people who'se names appear in the leaks (like informants etc) then it would be one of the best things to happen to international politics in a long time. Politicians are used to lying in public because they know there will be no comebacks so this is a great way of finding out the truth behind their actions...

    Unfortunately I think it's gone to his head a bit. Great man though. And very brave...

    not quite a supporter...

    Politics suck enough right now, nobody can't stand nobody. And things like wikileaks make that even worse.

    Seriously, is anyone suprised by this shit? And that we don't do the same? Most of the leaks are non news and Prince Andrew is a gobshite... so what?

    When governments lie to their people about the reasons behind going to war and how we behave when we're out there anything that can be done to find out what's really happening is a good thing. British troops have beaten civilians to death without the fear of come backs. Would you rather read an army press release about it or private e-mails?
