Bradley Manning, who is in custody, stole them. Then gave them to WikiLeaks.
Nidal Malik Hasan will get off the hook. But nobody should get off the hook on this leak.
"You want to let him off the hook for theft of classified documents?"
I think that he is providing a valuable service. Someone should go to jail for providing access to the documents
I don't think you can blame him for not keeping secrets that drop in his lap. The people to blame are the ones who supplied the information, or hacked into restricted systems.
One could argue that once the documents left restricted space, they are in the public domain. You can't keep the genie in the bottle once that happens. Anyone who argues you can is on the path to censorship.
