More questions on Wikileaks

There are many more issues surrounding Wikileaks other than the ones I pointed out earlier. Journo and internet historian John Naughton created a handy little mindmap as a guide.

About Younghusband

Sir Francis Edward Younghusband (1863-1942) was a British explorer, army officer, military-political officer, and foreign correspondent born in India who led expeditions into Manchuria, Kashgar, and Tibet. He three times tried and failed to scale Mt. Everest and journeyed from China to India, crossing the Gobi desert and the Mustagh Pass (alt. c.19,000 ft/5,791 m) of the Karakoram mountain range in modern day Pakistan. Convinced of Russian designs on British interests in India, Younghusband proactively engaged in the nineteenth century spying and conflict over Central Asia between the British and the Russians known as the Great Game. "Younghusband" is a Canadian who has spent a number of years bouncing back and forth between his home country and Japan. Fluent in Japanese and English with experience in numerous other languages from Spanish to Georgian, Younghusband has travelled throughout Asia. He graduated with an MA from the War Studies Department at the Royal Military College of Canada, where he focussed on the Japanese oil industry and energy security issues. He has recently returned to Canada from Japan, and is working in the technology sector.

    This really does underscore how complex the Wikileaks brouhaha is.

    If only the MSM or the loudest voices in the whole affair would confess likewise.

    Gaddafi has an buxom Ukrainian nurse and he may giving her a right proper rogering. The Saudis would prefer Iranians aspirations be thwarted, but won’t say so publicly. Prince Andy talks like a lad. There’s corruption in Central Asia.

    If this is the analysis of America’s diplomatic community and intelligence analysts…

    Quality over quantity.
