Just a minute! What's to debate? I understand that the US Administration are distributing this kind of information to 3 million US citizens. The idea, I have heard, is to ensure coordination between CIA, FBI etc. Eh? That just doesn't make sense. Why as many as 3 million? Someone is bound to leak it.

Some of the information is fairly innocuous; just undiplomatic tittle-tattle. Some seems to be sensitive; such as a list of sites important to US security but vulnerable to attack. In the wrong hands, this is dynamite information. Shame on the US for not holding it more securely; shame on Wikileaks for distributing it.

Where is the common sense in all this? I smell a buck!
