New Congressional Leadership Prioritizes Wikileaks Investigation

That makes no sense. So far, nearly all of the international response we've seen about Wikileaks has been focused on just how incredibly hypocritical the US has been in its response -- promoting freedom of the press and a free internet elsewhere, but then freaking out about Wikileaks at home. Pushing a politically motivated attack on Wikileaks will just make this issue worse in the eyes of the international community and seems unlikely to benefit the US in any way. If the world is laughing at the US over anything, it's about its childish and counterproductive response to Wikileaks, demonstrated specifically by Darrell Issa's statements and prioritization of Wikileaks as an issue.
If anything should be prioritized, it should be a review of why the government is being so overly secretive on matters where it should not be.
