    I know who Daniel Ellsburg is and that he leaked the Pentagon Papers. He didn't make it his career to disseminate secret information. My whole problem is that someone appointed himself "collector or leaks". I don't know or trust these people. How do I know they are better able to handle this information than the government? I don't, no one does. Who decides if the information is credible, what gets released, to who? Some random dude who has done nothing to gain my trust? He's running a spy network, essentially. I don't trust spies.
