Regardless of how you view the current debate over the release of Classified Documents by
WikiLeaks, the fact remains that Classified Information is and will always remains the property of the US Government. Even if Classified Information becomes exposed, it has NOT become un-Classified .!.
My advice is to stay away from the
WikiLeaks site, no matter how interesting and exciting it might be. Consider that by downloading Classified Information into your computer, you risk having your equipment confiscated. The Defense Security Service (DSS) has every legal authority to recover their Classified Information. Possession of stolen property would be bad enough, but you could easily lose everything else in your computer. Is it worth that risk, just to read some diplomatic gossip ? It is much safer to just read the news-press reports on what they claim to have read…..
We all trust them to tell us only the facts, right ?
Think that the threat of confiscation is just a threat only ?
Consider that Amazon apparently takes it seriously enough to un-host the controversial site. On Wednesday, Amazon.com notified the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee that it had stopped hosting the site.
I’m certainly not going there. I’m not even that interested in the soap-opera drama that the rumor-mill is generating.
I’m just sayin . . .
