    Some well known Libertarians speaking about wikileaks and foreign policy:


    Judge Napolitano speaking with Shepard Smith about wikileaks:

    Napolitano speaking on his own show about wikileaks:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdS7aCq4P3U


    John Stossel speaking on Judge Napolitano's show:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5613outDeo
    (Stossel comes on at around 4 minutes)


    Congressman Ron Paul giving a statement specifically about wikileaks:

    Ron Paul giving a speech on American foreign policy:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5b7M04xPRE




    How do the self-identified libertarians feel about this issue? Do you agree with any of these speakers or is your opinion not represented by them?

    I must say too, that even when I've disagreed with Ron Paul, I've always respected that he is truly a man of principles, which is rare in government today.

    A communist trying to make an alliance with a Libertarian?
    I guess just trying to recruit some ''useful idiots.''

    I've often been very critical of libertarianism, but most Libertarians i've met have at least been well read, they remain informed about the issues, and while we have different solutions to the problem, I respect that most libertarians don't blindly follow whatever official statement the Government tells them.

    You're still very young buddy, in fact many of us are. Try to keep an open mind and never be afraid to question the fundamentals. People on the left and on the right often have a lot in common, once you mature past the partisan bickering on Fox News or CNN.

    I'm a big Judge Napolitano fan.

    The vids cleared up some confusion on the issue. Legally, it looks like the espionage case rests in PFC Manning's court, and not with Assange or Wikileaks.

    The judge and Mr Smith also pointed out that some other people in DOD must have been involved, apart from PFC Manning.

    I think that Assange is a scumbag in many ways for releasing the material, but perhaps we should reflect that it was Wikileaks that broke Climategate. I daresay quite a few of us are glad that Climategate was exposed.

    ^ That's about my take. I think he was overly reckless about names and places and not blacking out sensitive items. Still I have not read much of the information, just analysis of it. There are some that believe that much of this information is already well known by the enemy, just not the public.

    Interesting fact is that the State Department was offered the opportunity to comb the files for sensitive material before it was released but declined.

    It exposed them to scrutiny, though, which is a good thing.
