Global Leakage has been in the news lately because of big exposé of American military documents from the war in Afghanistan. Some have suggested that the impact of these documents could be as great as the release of the Vietnam War era Pentagon Papers.

WikiLeaks describes themselves as a "public service designed to protect whistleblowers, journalists and activists who have sensitive materials to communicate to the public." They believe that "transparency in government activities leads to reduced corruption, better government and stronger democracies."

Is Wikilieaks performing a service or are they a danger to national security? I have no comment here, but I do approve of their logo.
