    The next Conservative President needs to go through the entire US State Department even have some people disappear. It's been a nest of vipers since the 40's and it's never been addressed.

    I wonder if this will really matter. At the worst all it seems to say is that all governments lie and that you can never trust anything that they say.

    But is that news? To anyone?

    Actually, this information itself does matter in the scheme of things considering what this means for foreign policy for countries throughout the world. I'm sure U.S is not the only one doing some of things to say the least.

    "Wikileaks has announced it is to release a second batch of Iraq war logs which will be seven times bigger than the first...

    "The coming months will see a new world, where global history is redefined...

    "A second far larger set of war logs could contain even more damaging revelations about similar crimes, or throw up entirely new incidents involving coalition troops.

    "They also raise the possibility of individual officers being named as perpetrators of ‘war crimes' and special forces agents in the field having their identities revealed."

    Wikileaks Set

    I gotta admit, I got kinda intrigued at all the James Bond spy type stuff.

    All these morons who think we're gonna have a one world government. Hell, we cant even get city councils to get along, much less all the nations of the world.
