How was publishing these internal memos in the public interest it was akin to gossip. We learned nothing, there was no scandal or abuse of power, just one person opinion that was never intended to be public. I promise not to spoil my grandkids. Actually when I think back to watching all the presidents men about the uncovering of Watergate.

Yeah, it’s not like anyone paying attention didn’t already know what the emails described. All leaking them did was throw an excellent Ambassador under the bus. The Official Secrets probably isn’t worth much more than the paper it was printed on. Since 1989, there has been less than one prosecution a year making it as far as the courts. Unfortunately, now that the Government deliberately leak information ahead of the official publication of documents, they have themselves undermined the process and principle of secrecy.
