Wikileaks 2010

Description

<img attachment="julian_assange.jpg" align="left" class="frame">The article <a href="http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2010/12/24/wikileaks" source="Salon" author="Glenn Greenwald">What WikiLeaks revealed to the world in 2010</a>offers a terse and eye-opening list of leaks in 2010. The leaks range from revealing that U.S. forces are operating in Pakistan and Yemen---contrary to official statements by high-level U.S. officials---to revealing that the Obama administration folded on prosecuting Bush-era human rights transgressions (as well as avidly continuing them) to the Pope refusing to aid investigators in sex abuse investigations to dozens of other instances of governments shielding and aiding and abetting one another in their varied criminal endeavors around the world. What exactly is the problem with revealing this kind of information? It's a good thing to know what our government does, no? Oh, that's right ... they're doing it for our own good, so we should stop sticking our noses where they don't belong.
