Wikileaks is again doing wrong -- very wrong and dangerous

Whatever the people of Wikileaks think of themselves and their concept of "open society", what they are doing is very wrong. Not only is it dangerous for diplomats but it is dangerous for the concept of diplomacy.
Staff at overseas embassies may not be forthright in their assessments. Countries may have much less trust in each other.

I agree with Christopher Dickey : Transparency, itself, will be a casualty.

I cannot understand why some of the leading newspapers are going along with this dangerous game.

If wikileaks can get hold of these documents, what else can others get hold of ? They're opening Pandora's Box.
