Thrasher: The people who might commit sure hineous acts of terrorism would most probably have access to all of this information already - due to the lack of protection and massive accessibility of it throughout the world. Governments say "this is dangerous information to leak" and when I've read it, it's only embarassing and provides proof that they've lied about the Iraq war for example. You need to know shit like that, you need to know if elected officials who represent you, have plotted to deceive you. These people should not keep their jobs, they shoulld (in the non-existant perfect world) be replaced with someone who is more honest, has more integrity, and is working to maintain or improve your quality of life. However these people in politics get extremely weathly from the decisions they make while in a position of responsibility and trust, and that shouldn't be the case. They should get exposed to thrown into prison like any other criminal who is dishonest and defrauds money from people. They should not be protected by secrets, they shouldn't be immune from prosecution or unaccountable.
