    That’s some leak – all those lives potentially at risk? Imagine if Snowdon had done it?

    My thoughts exactly, klewso. Not to mention the ultra-wicked Julian Assange who, it turns out, didn’t put anybody at risk.

    As the Minister responsible for the irresponsible department shouldn’t Morrison resign?

  3. John Hamer

    So let me get this straight. If Snowdon or Assange release this information, it is perfectly OK; but if Morrison releases it, it’s a hanging offence.

    Given the potential damage that could result from the data, The Guardian did the right thing in not providing additional information about the documents. We’ve done the same.

    Crap. They didn’t say anything about where to look; you did. Why? To big-note? Even hinting at where to look is grossly irresponsible. The matter is in no way closed out by the take-down, as you surely must know — and that isn’t just for your “anyone who has downloaded (the docs)”.

    Perhaps Mr Barry needs some material.

    Didn’t Conservatism squeal when they set that excuse?

  6. klewso

    You don’t have to believe everything you say.
    Does Abbott, believe what he says, or Murdoch what his Conservative catalogues print – to influence voter opinion?
    They’re saying things for the politics; to generate and nurture a perception – to influence electoral outcomes, to benefit their Limited News Party.

    Surely other people have the right to do the same thing?

    Imitation can also be the sincerest form of reckoning?
