Secrets-busting website WikiLeaks, which began publishing a giant trove of confidential U.S. government papers on Sunday, didn't expect the papers to reveal as much espionage as they apparently do, a spokesman said Monday.
"I was surprised at (the) extent of the spying," Kristinn Hrafnsson told CNN.
WikiLeaks claims it has 251,288 cables sent by American diplomats between the end of 1966 and February 2010, which it will release piecemeal over the course of weeks or months, Hrafnsson said.
And the truth shall set you free.
Our government secretly wiretaps our phone calls and e-mails under the "Patriot Act", and many of us think this is just fine.
Wikileaks obtains info–not from we the citizens, but from we the governing–and the officials scream bloody murder; the same officials who are wiretapping us! Guess what? Stop the wiretaps and e-mail intercepts against American citizens and I'll care that Wikileaks is spreading your garbage around the globe. Deal?
This is great newsfrom Wikileaks. Nice to see the truth about our government and the wrong doings they do all the time. Now it is time for the government to quit trying to run the world like the germanys tryed to do. This country is as bad as the nazi's.
Aristotle...we aren't wiretapped. google 'microsoft nsa key' and become aware.
