Doing the right thing

By now the initial hubbub is dying down about those wikileaks.
Not that there was a whole lot of earth shattering revelations in them, but the fact that names were named is, or should be troubling.

Normally when our covert help was compromised, a caring and competent administration would be scrambling to be sure our informants and their families were safe.

But we have the most bumbling and shortsighted administration in the last 20 years running things now. Do you think anyone has even broached the subject of evacuating those people? Because not only is it right- for their help, at least- but for any future clandestine help that might go south and need reassurance that we won't hang them out to dry.

But I'm not holding my breath on King Barry the Narcissist to do the morally right thing.
