Wikileaks-Lessons To Be Learned

I don’t know about you, but I see a great deal of good coming out of the Wikileaks, and lessons to be learned from these latest leaks.   Whenever truth is revealed and lies exposed, this is a good thing,  and we are seeing this happen as Hillary Clinton travels around the world attempting to do some damage control and cover the United States government’s tracks.
Jesus himself said “ For nothing is secret that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad," Luke 8:17

Open rebuke [is] better than secret love.  Proverbs 27:5

That is not to say that we are to approve the exposing of top secret government data that will put others in danger or endanger America’s national security as Hillary Clinton is trying to  spin through  the state controlled press. I don’t see see that happening at all here; in fact, much of the information that has been exposed via Wikileaks has already been widely published by the press throughout the world. For instance, the Israelis have publically made it  known in the Israel National News that Saudi airspace would be provided to the Israelis for an air strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. So there is no big secret here that the Saudis wanted an attack on Iran, or "cut off the head of the snake"  and no damage has been done.  And it's really no secret that the Saudis have been sponsoring alQaeda, as this article from the Washington Post back in 2002 points out, so no damage to national security  has been done here either.  Nor is it any secret that Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel agreed to give up land for peace as this New York Times article in June of 2009 shows.  Most, if not all of the leaks revealed so far are embarrassing, at best with no major damage done.
What the leaks do publically reveal to the people of America and the  entire world however is the hypocrisy, incompetence,  arrogance  and plain stupidity  inside of Washington.  Some three million federal employees have access to classified  documents marked "secret".  Three million employees is a massive amount of people to have access to secret classified government documents, which isn't too smart for any employer to allow.
Indeed, what is very telling is the disrespectful backroom talk engaged in by American “public servants” who now have egg on their face, and perhaps this is what Hillary and Obama is really very anxious and disturbed about. It publically reveals the true character of these individuals running the American government, and a lesson for them to learn from these Wikileaks is that the people of America and the  world is watching them and they will be held accountable for their words as well as their actions.

A question the entire world should be asking is how was a lone private first class in the military being accused as the culprit of the leaks to begin with, able to access such highly classified material with no questions asked? This certainly reveals the incompetence of the present administration in charge.
Egg on your face can be a very good thing if one learns from the experience. If one wants to say something derogatory about another, just remember that later on down the road it will come back to bite you. If it’s going to embarrass you sometime in the future, don’t say it. Always think before you speak. A principle to always remember is “don’t say something behind someone’s back that you would not say to their face.” If you practice this, you most likely will be considered an honest and trustworthy person.   As it now stands, this cannot be said about those running Washington by the world watching this fiasco and they only have themselves to blame.The Bible has plenty to say about backbiters, snoops,  slanderers and gossips, too much to put into this one entry. The Bible also has plenty to say about hypocrits. And as always, the Bible has once again proven to be true.  You reap what you have sown, and be sure, your sin will find you out.   May we all learn from this.

A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.  Proverbs 16:28
