U.S. Warns Federal Workers Against Viewing WikiLeaks Files
   
In a case of closing the barn door after the horses are out, federal employees are being warned not to look at leaked documents, noting that despite their wide release, the hundreds of thousands of stolen papers are still classified by the U.S. government.

This poll is going to be interesting.  It's going to show just how many people have no concept as to what "Rights" really mean...

everyone has a right to read what ever they choose to read,
 
But no one has the right to make public any information that is classified secret and could result in some one's death or the death of many..

Every single govt official including the President are people you hired to represent you. Are they really allowed to keep secrets from you, their boss? Keeping the secrets of war plans, weapons capabilities or of CIA Agent identities is a lot different from keeping secrets of what goes on in Gitmo or what happened to JFK or what the govt knows about UFOs.
 
How will you know when they cross the line if they are unanswerable to anyone?

So what information should be deemed "classiffied"? Information that could be detrimental to national security? Information that would put someones welfare at risk? Information that would embarrass public officials? Information that would create a backlash from the public towards government? Who decides what information should be classiffied?

Does that mean Pelosi should have classiffied the health care bill until after it was passed?

Does that mean those folks who out valerie Plame as a CIA operative should be charged with espionage and treason?

Technically, yes.  Practically, no.
 
As for the "technically", it is high time we revisited the powers granted to the Government by the people.
 
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
 
 
Never, has the truth of these words been more evident than they are today.

It shows who they really want to keep secrets from: the people. And all the "harmful to national security" is total bs. The only thing it harms is the image of an out of control government that believes itself to be god. It is long past time for a reality check, government is supposed to serve the people not vice versa. The government's interests have not been the people's interests for a very long time. So if something does get in the way of the government's interests, GOOD.

must of been classified,as no one knew what was in the bill,not even her stupid ass..!!

Plame was not engaged in a covert operation,therefore she was not outed or was her life put in danger,the first person to pass out her job classification was her own husband..!!

Freedom out the window.... I guess....what next?
 
Burning books out of the library....
 
Propoganda(sp)  I guess I better learn how to spell this word, cause I'm going to be using it a lot in 2011)
 
The government since I've known it... don't believe in the Freedom of Information Act.... trust that...
 
Try getting vidal information from them.... it's won't happen...
 
Our government is so hypocritical....it's sinful...I don't believe anything our government says or does....
 
Get our Troops out of the Middle East and screw what happens over there or anywhere.....
 
Why?  Cause we can't afford the cost of this war or any others... democracy... what is that?
 
Call me a bitter poster, it's ok...

Good luck with that one, only shows how stupid this adminstration is if they think they can control what public knowledge is out their by forbidding you to look at it.
