Inside The Box: WikiLeaks Releases Sensitive U.S. Documents

Bristling over the unauthorized release of more than a quarter million classified State Department documents, the Obama White House on Monday ordered a government-wide review of how agencies safeguard sensitive information.

The U.S. documents contained raw comments normally muffled by diplomatic politesse: Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah pressing the U.S. to “cut off the head of the snake” by taking action against Iran’s nuclear program. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi described as “feckless” and “vain.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel dismissed as “risk averse and rarely creative.”

So what do you think about WikiLeaks revealing all those classified documents? Do you think it will put our country at risk…or do you feel it’s information we deserve to know?

Step Inside the Box and have your say.
