SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
I find it remarkable that hundreds of thousands of highly classified secrets could simply be copied onto a CD by some random disgruntled military official and then carried out of a secure military installation. Not even Hollywood script-writers could have envisioned such incompetence…but if there is a lesson here it is never to underestimate the potential of stupidity.(I am speaking to my non-CFC readers; CFC members know full well about stupidity!)
Be that as it may, I am certain there is atleast one or two Hollywood films in the pipeline that centers on this exact case of wiki-leaks. But the amazing thing is that the situation is still unfolding! Everyday more and more of us are being reminded about how untrustworthy are our politicians and leaders. About how one lie is piled up on another ….and sold as truth.(What is new there, though?) Everyday more of the world’s governments are being embarrassed.
Where will it end? Will it end? Or is the case of wiki-leaks just the tip of the iceberg of a phenomenon of the little guy using technology and the internet to fight back and reclaim his right to have honest leadership? In anycase, wiki leaks is immensely entertaining….
