WikiLeaks not playing fair

WikiLeaks posts thousands of confidential documents -- US is embarrassed.

Let's be realistic about this. If some Army private could get this stuff, we have to imagine that the Russians, the Chinese, the Israelis and probably even the Bulgarians all had access to the same files long before WikiLeaks posted them.

US security was so lax that this guy took all these files on a thumb drive.

And no one in Washington was really concerned because if other countries' spies got this stuff, they would have the good manners not to blab it all over. And for all the world leaders who were frankly assessed in those memos, well they had to figure such things were being said, just not in public.

But then here comes WikiLeaks, which is not in the business of stealing secrets and keeping them relatively secret. It is in the business of making a big splash by telling everything it knows.

Welcome to the Internet. There are no secrets.
