…doesn’t just leak stuff about how crappy and incompetent Obama is in Afghanistan. It also leaks oddities like a Secret Recording of the LDS Temple Endowment Ceremony, Censored Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi docs, and stuff about “Alperin v. the Vatican Bank” (that last one, I’m pretty sure, is about that immortal guy from Lost and how he gets his funding).
Speaking of which, some of our police state enthusiasts are trying to figure out how to stop the increasing sievelike nature of the new communication technologies. Some prefer the good old Communist Chinese methods of brute force. I have a feeling that will not be too successful. It seems like trying to attack a cloud of hornets with a baseball bat.
Not that I’m too keen on this reckless data dump. Giving out the names of people who don’t like Bronze Age thugs in their country who bury women alive for revealing an ankle may make the guys at Wikileaks feel like brave countercultural icons, but the price for their vanity is that courageous people (both American and Afghan) who are trying to fight foaming Bronze Age nutjobs get targeted and killed. By all means expose the Administration to well-deserved ridicule. But don’t expose human beings to death by nutjob.
