Re: Wikileaks bitch-slaps the world in the nuts...

They didn't steal documents. They accessed databases of communications, which were left incredibly exposed. And while these people managed to access the information and then published it, just take a minute to think about how many other people, with far more evil motives, could have also accessed t...

He recently discovered a lump on his neck, went to the doctor, they decided to operate, and found what they call "a malignant thyr...

Sorry about the four year delay! :lol:
