    handling sensitive information period.

    Your creating some random argument in your head where people are "saying wiki leaks is not a news source" and acting all defensive.

    No one gives a shit about that point.

    The point is......

    Its idiotic on EPIC proportions to think news agencies are capable of handling that material.  They are simply over their head when it comes to the security precautions needed to safely deal with the issue.

    If you give an important sensitive bit of information to CNN, FOX NEWS, MSN, or wikileaks you may as well be plastering it on billboards in times fucking square.

    Jesus christ, you are defending someone who announced to you "that everything electronic you do is being spied on". Yet you somehow think that OMGZ but these other random organizations. THEIR communications must be safe.

    Holy fucking shit batman are you not paying attention? Snowden and Manning themselves just told you that their own methods of communication ARE NOT SECURE.

    Your whining excuse about how it was not Manning's fault that the full contents were released." IT was because XYZ and ABC happened. " Thats exactly fucking case in point about why this approach is dumping the info into the public square.

    This was not what an informed stable person does. This is what a freaking out child does when they don't know what to do.
