From Gossip to "No Secrets"

From Gossip to Still think the United States is a free country that upholds freedom of the press, freedom of information, and can separate the affairs of state with the private sphere? If still, think again ....

Agencies of the U.S. federal government has issued a warning, every civil servant in the country who read the leaked document on the WikiLeaks secret diplomatic wire can be fired from his job.

One government agency is the Office of Management and Budget of the White House. The office sent a memo containing the prohibition to any employee who did not have authorization and all partners to read secret documents on WikiLeaks site or any site, whether in government-owned computers as well as their personal computers.

Later, electronic mail circulating that contains a warning, school and university students caught reading confidential documents on WikiLeaks, merely put a link to the document or comment on its contents on social networking sites could be threatened will not be accepted as a civil servant working in the U.S..

The U.S. government argues, the documents are still a secret though it was circulated widely on the Internet and published in the mass media. "So, read, distribute, or just comment on the documents could be considered a violation of Executive Order 13526 on Secret National Security Information," said Maura Kelly, assistant dean of career development at Boston University.

In fact, the contents of classified secret documents, which leaked on WikiLeaks, it contains a lot of gossip that just kind of gathering of mothers, such as commenting on the personality and habits of people to kind of dish that is served in the wedding.

One of the cable, for example, Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi comment which is always accompanied by the nurse "sexy" from Ukraine. President of Turkmenistan called "not very intelligent" and "trained liar", who reportedly never require that every person who entered the room wearing a starched pants slippery.

In other wire quoted the Economist magazine, a diplomat who attended the wedding described Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov in the North Caucasus region, Russia. Dish at the party described as "pieces of cow and goat" which boiled together in a large skillet.

Another culinary report came as U.S. Ambassador Ronald McMullen to Eritrea invited to a picnic lunch by a senior official in the African country. "Mr. Ambassador and mother were treated to grilled sheep innards that were given honey and hot sauce (but served without cutlery) and covered with a semi-traditional beverage fermented and sour taste, called 'rent'," the diplomatic wires.

Many also contain information that is already publicly known or even taken over from newspapers or magazines. One of the documents labeled confidential (only allowed to be published in 2019) only contains the information that Canada is a loyal friend that the U.S. and the UK Conservative Party politicians do not get along with politicians from the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. Something that is commonly known to everyone.

There is also a wire from the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey, the entire first paragraph marked "no secret", but the document itself is intact labeled "secret". Weird is not it? (CNN / AP / DHF)
