A parliament of leakers: WikiLeaks and the new vision : Comments

By Binoy Kampmark, published 9/8/2013

What is being proposed now in such platforms as those of the WikiLeaks Party is a general challenge to the presumption that a leak is itself ipso facto illegal.

Julian ASSANGE---"One of the first things that we will do when we have someone in the Senate is go and give every senator a secure USB communications system where they can convey to WikiLeaks information about corruption within Australian political parties and so on that they've observed but can't reveal.Ē

Thatís fair enough in times of peace, but what about in times of war.
There has to then be some kind of code of secrecy, to keep information from reaching the enemy.

Julian Assange didnít release corruption documents, he released war documents putting peoples lives at risk. We have fatherís and sons dying overseas at the moment we donít need people like him selling them out to the enemy. He may not see himself as a traitor but that's
what he is, not a whistleblower.

um regards the previous post "times of war" yeah and when is there any time in the past 50 years when the US hasn't been at war with numberless countries of this world ...
also released war document? sorry no ppl have been killed by these leaks just a lot of embarrassed politicians and their crony government departments and legislatures ..... we have to come back to the rule of law otherwise we just become terrorists too we need to open the can of worms and blind attachment to US foreign policy and the danger to world peace this brings.

VAPID VIRUPA,
One could also say when hasn't there been one of these countries not producing a flood of refugees due their internal religious power struggles ?
Can you name one, just one country that the US went into that didn't have serious conflicts before the US decided to go in & try to stabilise the morons ?

Are you serious Indi?

What about Iraq? Sure they had a few domestic issues? Like the war with Iran, using kids to shuffle across the minefields to protect their tanks, the use of WMDís on the Kurds, the invasion of Kuwait, the eradication of the wrong kind of Islamists in the marsh peoples and the burning of the Kuwaiti oil fields.

Címon Indi, these are all domestic issues.

What about the Serbian conflict in the Balkans? Surely you can see that Milosevic had it all under control? And Afghanistan, just a few people slaughtered, regional instability, hosting those nice people from the Taliban, you know, the ones who shoot women in the back of the head in football stadiums on Saturday afternoons just for fun?

No, no, no. You have it all wrong. You also need to understand American Imperialism.

You know, the type of imperialism where the imperialists like the USA attack and occupy foreign territory like Poland, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, much of Eastern Europe and every other Russian territory?

Oh hang on a minute that might not have been the Americans.

Ah but, yeh but, ah but, well, well. What about the invasion of the West Bank in 1947 and again 1967? What about Gaza at the same time? Ah gotya there.
OK, I concede, that might have been the Jordanians and the Egyptians, whatever.

Look Indy, Iím with VACANT VIRUS on this. We will get back to you with an answer, Promise.

VAPID VIRUPA,
I have a question for you. Would you be for or against going into internal conflict countries to prevent their citizens from becoming refugees or would you prefer to simply open the doors to anyone claiming to be a refugee ?
How would you go about this were you in a position to do it.
