Man: Diplomatic cables were more interesting before the leaks. Tom: How terribly diplomatic!
why is it accepted and praised for an individual (I think not even an American citizen) to steal classified data and publish it for the world to read and use against the USA?
Responsibility has been thrown away….scofflaws get by with doing what in years past would have brought police action, arrest, trial and prison. Nixon’s “plumbers” were trying to obtain EVIDENCE of Democratic dirty trick plans….to do illegal acts against the administration/GOP.
But those “plumbers” were demonized and sneered at to this day! That seems to be more serious than a mere double-standard….IMO it is elimination of equal and high standards for all, the Ds and Rs equal before the Law.
