A lawyer representing WikiLeaks is charging in London that a secret Grand Jury meeting outside the Capital on Leak is being held at this minute (it’s 2:15 PM EST). The meeting is to consider charges in the release of thousands of sensitive U.S. documents. It is to remind everyone that the Capital in question is none other than Washington, D.C. It’s not the Moscow of bygone years. It’s not Beijing.
The doors of the government of those capitals were closed before but lately we have seen some opening, no matter how small.

Since coming to the States, I have been hearing The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics By Francis Scott Key 1814.
The following lyrics are repeated over and over, four times:
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
I have said it many times on these pages that, in any country, there are two pieces to a law:
One written on a piece of paper and the other when it is enforced by the authorities, completely and fully without any reservation. America is definitely missing one piece.
America is supposed to be the land of the free. America is supposed to be open to its citizens. America is supposed to be representing its people in openness. America is not supposed to deal in secrecy, domestic or international. Let it set an example to the rest of the world by opening up its hallways and corridors. America must show its greatness not only to the world but to its own people as well.
- Freedom is accepted by a statue made of steel with a flesh heart.
- Freedom is rejected by Government made of flesh with a steel heart.
Freedom of speech “don’t mean nothing” on a piece of paper. The greatness of a government comes to light of the day when it is enforced fully and completely.
