Reporting from Washington — The latest U.S. government document posted by WikiLeaks is marked “secret,” but it contains no new revelations, startling or otherwise.
It’s a CIA memo that reads like the musings of a Washington think tank, pondering what might happen if the United States began to be perceived as an “exporter of terrorism,” as a result of attacks mounted abroad by homegrown radicals. The conclusion: It would not be a good thing.
WikiLeaks won fame and notoriety after releasing gun-camera video of a U.S. helicopter attack in Iraq, and more recently about 75,000 classified military documents detailing operations in Afghanistan.
