9. That's part of what has TPTB so shit-scared about Wikileaks.
Edited on Wed Dec-08-10 09:42 AM by GliderGuider
It puts the spotlight directly on them, and reduces their ability to deflect public attention with their Cloak of Invisibility (aka classifying themselves into invisibility).

The other thing that has TPTB shittin' and gittin' is that they can no longer be certain that their comms channels are secure. Who or what has been compromised? If you don't know, you have to assume that the entire system is insecure. Makes it much harder to plan wars in Iraq and Afghanistan or banker bailouts if you can't talk to anyone without thinking it will leak out.
