List of facilities 'vital to US security' leaked

Most of what I have read that has been disseminated by Wikileaks has been fairly ho hum, and, I believe, should not have been given the classifications that prevented them from becoming available to the public. The way our government manipulates its own citizens is indefensible.

However, this list of vital facilities contains, I am sure, information that Al-Qaeda can use to terrorize the World, and, as Newt says, its release borders on treason.

In February 2009 the State Department asked all US missions abroad to list all installations whose loss could critically affect US national security.

The list includes pipelines, communication and transport hubs.

Several UK sites are listed, including cable locations, satellite sites and BAE Systems plants.

BBC diplomatic correspondent Jonathan Marcus says this is probably the most controversial document yet from the Wikileaks organisation.
