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.

Traitors. Even if the administration in question is the Obama administration. These scum are still traitors and deserve a traitor's end.

Same antiAmerican bigotry as was the case with the Pentagon Papers.

The NYT is going to try and spin these into successes for Obama? Good luck with that.

I object to the double standards involved in release of classified information. I am led to believe I would face the third degree if I were to release anything classified, but Wikileaks, Sandy Berger and the New York Times misuse classified information with impunity.

The Times believes that the documents serve an important public interest,

Meanwhile the exposure of Valerie Plame was the worst crime in the history of the universe. The Wikileaks exposure of thouaands of American sources in foreign governments, many of whom are going to die horrible deaths over this, is somehow "valuable" and "illuminating."

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

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.

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.

These are cables long before Wikileaks announced they intended to publish theirs. What we have here folks from the NY Slimes is self selected cables in an attempt to cushion the Obama blow.

That term lost its meaning when Jane Fonda went to Hanoi and nothing was done about it.

If Wiki is posting all this to internet files, does it really make any difference if the NYT publishes it or not?

I realize the NYT has been a bad outfit for decades, but what difference does their involvement make here?

“The Times has taken care to exclude, in its articles and in supplementary material, in print and online, information that would endanger confidential informants or compromise national security. The Times’s redactions were shared with other news organizations and communicated to WikiLeaks, in the hope that they would similarly edit the documents they planned to post online.”

Gee, I didn't know The NY Slimes cared so much? /sarc

It is set to lead to international calls for Mrs Clinton to resign.

So it's not all bad news.
