New York Times - A Note to Readers: The Decision to Publish Diplomatic Documents
NYTimes ^ | 11/28/2010

Posted on 11/28/2010 3:27:49 PM PST by markomalley

The articles published today and in coming days are based on thousands of United States embassy cables, the daily reports from the field intended for the eyes of senior policy makers in Washington. The New York Times and a number of publications in Europe were given access to the material several weeks ago and agreed to begin publication of articles based on the cables Sunday online. The Times believes that the documents serve an important public interest, illuminating the goals, successes, compromises and frustrations of American diplomacy in a way that other accounts cannot match.

I have to surmise that whoever has the “real” leaked stuff has doubtless edited them to favor whatever his or her world view is.

Then we will see how in favor they are of publishing this stuff.

Rest assured that the NYT is working closely with Obama's team to insure that only certain things get published.

Actually, from what I have read of it, it reveals Bambi to be the America-hating jerk that he is. So it’s actually a little surprising that they would publish it.

I say we open the NYTimes building to anyone who wants to go in. No security, no police. Fair?

You bet! We should also demand that all the Times' inter-office memos, from Sulzberger on down, be made public along with transcripts of all editorial meetings and board meetings. All emails involving Times' business including communications with bureaus and individual reporters should be made public. No more secrets!

Liberals are masters at rationalizing unethical or unpatriotic behavior. Simple as that, especially in the case of the New York Times which doesn’t even require any rationalization to live up to their reputation.

If the state dept files are released by Assange, he is as good as dead.

The documents are said to contain the names of Afghani informants against the Taliban, and if so, then they will be slaughtered by the Taliban, along with their families. These dearhs will be on Assange's head.Cute , tricksy wicksy," whistle blowing," Assange will have become an active, willful participant in espionage, instead of a "mere reporter."

What that means is that Assange will himself become a target. By this time next year Assange will not be breathing Gods good air IMHO.

Assange gets Leftist Darwin Award for stupid, asinine killing of whole families of Afghanis.

Such treasonous acts only provide for superficial anti-American rhetoric and hostility.
