Poll: Should the Public Cheer WikiLeaks for Posting Government Secrets?

Assange tells Obama to end WikiLeaks 'witchhunt'

WikiLeaks is back in the news with founder Julian Assange — facing sex charges in Sweden — trading accusations with the U.S. government over “witch hunts” and “wild assertions.”  Assange’s archive of previously secret documents from around the world has led to government shake-ups and diplomatic embarrassments.  But not every leak is from a national capital or war zone.  You can find references to a Home Depot in Lemon Grove, a jewelry store in La Jolla and weapons storage at North Island in Coronado. Should WikiLeaks be shut down or applauded for opening up regimes to public scrutiny?
