I dunno what to make of this wikileaks stuff. I fully support the right of countries and organisations to keep secrets, however sometimes when things are covered up - and secrecy used to hide that, well I don't like that at all.

But unlike a newspaper editor saying 'publish and be damned' - I'm not sure if there is any editorial control whatsoever with this site and I can totally forsee situations in which innocent people are put at risk by this site in it's effort to make headlines. And I really think the ethos of this site is as much to do with scoring a publicity coup as it is actually outing secrets that maybe should not be so.

Whatever you think of Assange, Wikileaks, or RT you cannot ignore the fact that what they are talking about in the video is very real.
