In May 2010 US army analyst Private Manning was arrested in Iraq on suspicion of having passed state secrets to the online publisher WikiLeaks. Manning was accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of diplomatic and military documents.

Shortly thereafter a small group of journalists made their way through Central Asia interviewing editors. Their real goal: to find local media outlets to publish the secret US diplomatic cables.

Mediastan is a journey from Afghanistan to Manhattan, through the boundaries of freedom of speech. Venturing into the minds of those who shape our understanding of the world.

A double standard does exist the Government Class gets off you go to jail...Look at Putin he stands up now sanctions and Putin is no angel but non of us are and for the American Government class to point its finger is a joke.

I Was under the impression that HACKING and Cracking and stealing others personal info. was a CRIME as we have seen quite a few Private Citizens go to Prison for this but when GOVERNMENT like the US of America and other Country's doe's it, no one gets Criminally Charged or arrested, therefore I Suggest that the Victims lay a Charge against the Suspects at the World Courts.
Can anyone enlighten me on this subject if I Am incorrect or correct. If I am correct, it means that all in prison for this crime can appeal their sentences and walk out free AND be Compensated. "What is good for the Goose, is good for the Gander"
