What's happening to the world, when you cannot trust "Hackers" not to sell you out?

Hackers turning Leakers in to the Authorities.

What's the world coming to?

    • "Suspicion has fallen on to a 22-year-old army intelligence officer, Bradley Manning, who is in custody charged with passing to WikiLeaks a classified military video of a US helicopter gunning down civilians in Iraq in 2007.
    • "Adrian Lamo, the hacker who turned Private Manning in to the authorities in May, said on Good Morning America that he suspected the officer was the source of the Afghanistan documents. But he did not think Private Manning had the technical expertise to pull off such a large removal of documents by himself."

Denis, do you think those "cabinet leaks" against Julia could come from someone bugging cabinet meetings or a hacker getting into cabinet docs? Well, I don't suppose so. Labor hubris is probably the cause.

Hi Brigid
No need to look beyond Labor's own
"Rats in the Ranks" I fear.
Various conspiracy theories are being pushed, but the mostly likely source is someone close to (but other than) Kevin Rudd.
Loyalty can be very blinding.
Hatred, even more so.
