I am curious to know how much every person in my company earns, or have a look at the internet history of my neighbour. But i can't because of a thing called privacy. I live with that because as a citizen of a democracy i understand the value of the right to privacy. Why should the world know what contingency plans are in place in the event of x invading y, or the key operational sites for the security of a state? Why is this not a private matter?

If there is reason to beleive ACTUAL wrong doing then follow the legal channels. If the leaks are meant to embarass and sensationalise then i do not support them.
This.
