As a follow-up to Dan's earlier post on the hysterical response to Wikileaks, check out why grad schools (including one law school) are warning students not to access docs posted on the site.

What's posted on Wikileaks is what's in the NY Times, including the redactions. What is it about the NYT that "cleanses" the docs? Or are these folks not to be caught reading the newspaper either? What does this tell us about where we are headed in this country? Do we want the government to be staffed only by those who willingly remain ignorant because the government likes it that way? The docs were "leaked" and they are now in the public domain. Maybe, as lawyers, we should be asking whether all this needs to be secret in the first place, and why anyone should be prohibited by law from accessing this information.
