    wikileaks has over 200,000 documents to release. At present only around 250 have been released. So no, there're still a lot of juicy secrets left. Its far from over.

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."
    - Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Most of them aren't really important, the most "disturbing" ones are already out there, aren't they?

    And remember, this isn't anything "new", it's just early. Usually most of such stuff gets revealed when it becomes "history" (I think around 60 years is kinda the generally accepted usual time frame, right?).

    I know that they declassify information after a decade or two or more but we live in a very different era now than say 30 years ago.

    Personally I think that this would have been worse in some cold-war era than now, people are becoming more and more tolerant to such stuff

    I doubt that, especially if the most controversial ones are already out there

    Wikileaks is trying to prevent governments from controlling every aspect of our lives. Probably a Hybrid of slavery. I did a little bit research on the matter and found out quite a bit from what people heard or read about Wikileaks. If you think Wikileaks is the enemy, you are misinformed. Here is a letter of there goals: [Link not posted until its approved]

    Apparently the attack is still on-going and major credit card companys are under attack and anyone else involved in trying to take down Wikileaks. Don't mess with freedom of speech.

    Here is a news report on the current situation: [Link not posted until its approved]

    Edit: I wouldn't be surprised if global networks all cripple due to the government(s) panicking.
    I'm for freedom of speech. If we didn't have this, we only have are ass and stick to play with and I'm sure we all don't want that.

    Countries are scared of Julian Assange
    I like what Wiki Leak's is doing.
    It's real news; showing the public how it is behind the government; mostly federal.

    Well currently it isn't showing that much, only around 20k of 250k or how much?
