The tricky thing about classified imformation is that only those who can already view it are able to judge whether it truly deserves to stay secret. Consider for a moment just where this information is coming from, and who's providing it. Before getting to us this information passes by the initial person/people who leak the data. Who knows what other information this source is privy to but chooses not to share because they don't feel it should publicized? It then goes on to WikiLeaks where the staff and Assange get to further filter it depending on their idea of what should be publicized. What gives any of these people more right to determine it than the politicians? It's easy to ignore this thought because in every case they seem to choose "share it!", but the choice is still made. Our voracious appetite for this information has unknowingly been giving the informants and WikiLeaks staff the same power that those prejudiced, corrupt, egomaniacal, selfish, inept, ignorant and sometimes just plain dumb humans used to have, without any evidence to prove that they aren't exactly the same. The reason this has me so bothered is broad spectrum of classified information. I'm sure we can all agree that there is classified information that should stay secret. Things like federal employee's personal information, weapon manufacturing/handling/movement documents, and other such operational documents with no political value which threaten the well being of various people. This information is of a very different nature, but still follows very similar classification protocol. Classified Document A and Classified Document B look the same on the outside, you have to peak in to know what each is about. Once you've done that you now know things which you potentially shouldn't have for good reason. Many of us seem quite happy with all of this mostly political information being passed along to WikiLeaks, but I for one am not comfortable with it. I am not comfortable knowing that the informants and staff assume the right to be judge and jury on classified information simply because what has been released so far has brought up scandalous information.
