Is WikiLeaks a threat to national security?

Question by ksafin@ymail.com: Is WikiLeaks a threat to national security?
This is for a debate.
I have 500 pages of research and have my own opinion, but I wanted to hear your arguments so I can be prepared to rebuttle.

So, guys: WikiLeaks is a threat to US National Security. True or False, and why?

Best answer:

Answer by Timmeh!
No, plain and simple. They ARE a threat to the US government’s ability to cover up whatever massacres and war crimes they have carried out. To date, of the 250,000 cables and documents they have received, they have leaked less than 1%, due to the time it takes to go through each doucment and redact it to ensure the names of people who might be at risk have been removed. That is responsible reporting, and it shames the so called mainstream media.

  • So false. Julian Assange is simply a messenger. It’s up to the US government to behave, it’s their fault for doing so many things wrong and leaving the evidence lying around. Government shouldn’t be hiding things from the people, they should be open and morally upstanding, not act like a bunch of corrupt vultures which act behind closed doors like a bunch of crooks.

  • Unfortunately we’ve recently found out that the quest for National Security seems to be a threat to all of us.
    Recently some security firms were discovered to be involved in the coverup and the campaign to marginalize wikileaks. These are the same techniques used in Egypt this month by the fascist dictatorship.
    So, my opinion is that it’s not wikileaks that’s the threat to national security, it’s the culture of fascism deep in the US government that’s the threat.


    “Some of the things mentioned as potential proactive tactics include feeding the fuel between the feuding groups, disinformation, creating messages around actions to sabotage or discredit the opposing organization,

    and submitting fake documents to WikiLeaks and then calling out the error.

    Create concern over the security of the infrastructure. Create exposure stories. If the process is believed to not be secure they are done. Cyber attacks against the infrastructure to get data on document submitters. This would kill the project. Since the servers are now in Sweden and France putting a team together to get access is more straightforward.”
