I think that what WikiLeaks did can be considered an act of information warfare and should be dealt with as such. The alleged source (Private Bradley Manning) should be charged with treason and sabotage, but WikiLeaks certainly aided in that regard and should be held accountable. I find it appalling that many in new and old media are justifying WL as transparency, etc... The WikiLeaks organization claims to be a "news" organization but also claims to be an "activist". Sorry guys, one or the other...
