I get your point, but while I don't think that she specifically is the solution or would do something unique to stop the leaks, this stuff has to stop, and the Obama administration has not done enough. This has happened twice since he took office. In general, the problem is an unwillingness to prosecute. These scumbags need to be held accountable for the harm they cause as they persue their wacko ideology. The pertinent quote for me is the following:

"In September, the Congressional Research Service released a report concluding that, "leaks of classified information to the press have only rarely been punished as crimes, and we are aware of no case in which a publisher of information obtained through unauthorized disclosure by a government employee has been prosecuted for publishing it.""

We need to conduct our government in a manner that does not require secrecy. Secrecy is mostly used to protect the individuals that screwed things up. Not to enhance security.

Sarah Palin's myth is going to be greater than Ronald Reagan's. She's going to stop nuclear bombs with a good old fashion back-handed b@tch-slap. She will be able to suppress countries and their regimes with her voice/tone alone. She will do many extraordinary things....

Sarah Palin in 2012!

Let the Destruction commence.....

The government opened many communications between departments so different arms of the government would know possible threats... a by product of 9/11. a private apparently accessed a great deal of info and burned it to a CD which he removed and that was turned over to Wiki. On his port I suspect he thought some of the war crimes being committed should be brought to the light of day. unfortunately the full weight of the government has come down on this whistle blower.

Sara Palin is an idiot and with every tweet she proves this. She has no clue about reality, and certainly no concept of international law. To say the current administration has done nothing is far from the truth. Do you think the charges Sweden is pointing at the Wiki founder came from other than the US influence? hardly.

So now we have a situation where the government is being exposed for the lies they perpetrate and indecencies exposed. Sadly they rally support by stiring up the fear of national security when it is nothing more than dubious people continuing dubious acts. and idiots standing by as we allow them to continue. Face it the government is afraid they have been caught. Don't get mislead by the spin they put on it. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck.....

IMHO somebosy should start a corporate Wikileaks site. I would really appreciate knowing what the Corporations have planned for us. Besides the normal greed driven crappy products, excess pollution and overseas manufacture that is.

Why oh why is Mrs. Palin still giving her two cents? Or, better yet, why are people still listening? I just don't get it... If I style a beehive on my head and speak as if I were raised by back woods wolves, will I be famous too??
