Are they? Is there any reason to publicize what American diplomats are saying about the government of other countries? Is what the US government is saying hurting the American people in any way? No. Is publicizing this helping anyone in any way? No. Is it hurting US foreign relationships? Yes. What Wikileaks has done is nothing except mindless, irrelevant gossip designed to hurt people's reputations and hurt the US's diplomatic system. There is absolutely no way in that helps democracy. As far as I'm concerned, it's just another internet gossip site aimed at governments instead of celebrities.

It's not only what the are saying, the cables have in depth information on things, such as Shell execs infiltrating Nigerian government cabinents, or that the US gave Russia the UK's nuclear arsenal secrets as a barganing piece in signing a treaty... Sh*t that's seriously f*cked up in the world, open your eyes and stop being so ignorant.

Out of curiosity, if Wikileaks/Julian Assange is culpable for the distribution of the stolen information, is the general media also culpable for distributing the distribution of the stolen information? Is there a degrees of separation clause that kicks in here anywhere?

It was earlier stated that Wikileaks isn't registered press so any immunities granted to the press is not granted to Wikileaks.

In no way did you defend yourself or answer that question. Is that really helping out government or letting anybody know anything of importance?

Where is your source about that anyway? Do not tell me it is Wikileaks, because I will punch you in the face.

The general media would be immune to the issues that Julian Assange is having, as far as I can tell.
