I look forward to their release of the banking papers regarding our tax dollars bailing them out and what they've done since.
Thanks, a lot of the newer folks have not known you as long as I have. I thought I'd demonstrate that you actually know what you are talking about. Yeah it occurred to me that some of these releases might actually help rather than hurt, in the long run.

I was short on time earlier, while I would have preferred these secrets remain just that for a variety of reasons, the releases don't seem to me to be a bad as was expected or predicted. I understand why some posters were concerned about lives being put at stake and national security. That was after all what many critics said these releases would do. In looking through all the available data so far, I also don't see that. I'm not saying this is a good situation, but in a making the best out of it, some of this information might actually be helpful.

Now having said all of that, I'd like to see the PFC behind all of this prosecuted and punished. One things that these Wikileaks have accomplished is causing us to get our act together and be more secure with this type of information. I understand the state department has now amended lot pf policies, particular as flash or pin drives are concerned. Which is a good thing, I'm interested to see what we find out about the banking releases, a friend of mine is predicting they will have to do with Bank of America, we've got a six pack of Paulanger Double Bock riding on the outcome.
