WikiLeaks Will Be The Box Office Smash This Weekend
Forget Tangled or Burlesque or The Nutcracker. The Real Blockbuster This Holiday Weekend Is WikiLeaks
I can’t wait for this next batch of WikiLeaks documents to come out. Can. Not. Wait.
Just the diplomatic scurrying alone is worth the price of admission.
To sum up, the WikiLeaks says it is going to release U.S. diplomatic cables in a document drop seven times larger than its ones on the Afghan and Iraq wars.
Those were about the gritty, dismaying secrets and realities of modern warfare. This will also be about that. You got Turkey supporting Al-Qaeda, and the U.S. supporting Kurdish terrorists, among other things.
Canadian foreign affairs minister Lawrence Cannon, meanwhile, got a call from U.S. ambassador David Jacobson about the “compromising conversations” that could come up in the cables. Sounds sexy! Like a Cinemax movie!
I appreciate the serious discussions this will bring up about whether a government has the right to so much secret workings. I would tend to say, yes, there should be some secrecy, but that, no, not this much. Anyone drawing back the curtains on the greed and corruption of global political hypocrisy is good in my book.
I try to tell the truth in my own life. I try to teach my kids to tell the truth. I do not think it is naive to expect my government to tell the truth (most of the time).
And there is the chaos aspect. Just throw the wrench in the works. This is not a system meant to protect the average guy, the small business owner. It is a system of power going back to the dawn of history. It is double-faced and destructive and all about state or personal interest.
And they play it all with house money, namely ours. So why don’t we get to peek in on the fun, see the nasty names, the double dealing.
I might go line up at my own computer right now.
