Geez -- I can't IMAGINE that there are more leaks coming from the government than the critical intel which the Obama administration happily divulges to the press corps and Hollywood on a routine basis...

STUXNET...Seal Team Six...Foreign agents working for us...What hasn't the Obama administration given up in an effort to try and pump up O's numbers? :dunno:

I'd be suspicious of any government entity that feels it needs to "warn" whistleblowers.

Generally speaking, whistleblowers are usually the good guys in a conflict.

I'm personally in favor of whistle blowers, on principle. That includes Wikileaks. As long as lives aren't being placed in jeopardy, I'd rather have transparency than secrets. The people have a right to know what their gov't is up to.

Yes -- it's hard to draw a line on that national security/ peoples' lives thing, but in general, I think whistle-blowing yields a net positive.
