John Feffer: Wikileaks: Full Body Scan of Government

WikiLeaks puts the government through a full body scanner to reveal many dirty secrets. U.S. officials, not surprisingly, have responded with anger. They don’t want their “junk” exposed or touched. No one, from emperors to excursionists, likes to be naked in public. And the latest revelations are the most intrusive yet. It’s one thing when WikiLeaks exposes the lies of the U.S. government in Afghanistan or Iraq. But with this Sunday’s release of 251,287 U.S. embassy cables, what the website calls “the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain,” perhaps the transparency fundamentalists have gone too far.
