My mother asked me via email what I thought about the organization and the recent data dump. I was wondering myself because I was a bit unnerved with the Sunday dump where in the past I haven’t been. I think I got it figured out for myself and replied to her – I think that Wikileaks original purpose was to be a whistleblower safe haven and I am all for that. However the action by the organization on Sunday was not whistle blowing but revealing sensitive information for the sake of releasing it and causing embarrassment – most especially for the USA government. I see the potential for a lot of harm and distrust in relationships with other governments and quite possibly undermining very sensitive work that has been accomplished or in the works. They should be held accountable for the disclosure of information just as if they were a captured spy which possessed sensitive/government documents.
