    WikiLeaks Setting Another Trap for Journalists, NGOs

    A sends:

    I tasted that poison today. It was strange, the feeling of having the privilege to information that was only made available to "a select few" was overwhelming, I don't have the vocabulary to describe what the poison tastes like, but I can understand how some people could become addicted to it, even if it meant their death.

    You are right, WL is setting "Terms and Conditions" to the access to stolen property, and attempting to force Journalists into an "Agreement" to those "Conditions, however unenforceable.

    Your thoughts and counsel were welcomed, they snapped me out of that trance that I found myself in.
    The only thing to do is, publish everything that I've learned over the last many hours about this whole affair.
