Dear Columbia Students: If You Close Your Eyes, Wikileaks Doesn't Exist. Thanks! -- US Government

In a classy move straight outta 1984, the State Department warned Columbia students (IE, prospective employees) via the School of International and Public Affairs that if they disseminated, talked about, chatted about, posted about, blogged about, looked at, thought about, or admitted to the existence of Wikileaks, Uncle Sam wouldn't hire them.

"An email from SIPA's Office of Career Services went out Tuesday afternoon with a caution from the official, an alumnus of the school. Students who will be applying for jobs in the federal government could jeopardize their prospects by posting links to WikiLeaks online, or even by discussing the leaked documents on social networking sites, the official was quoted as saying."

Jeezy creezy, Minitrue, why the hell is this shit classified anymore?  Last I knew, you could still look it up online-- I mean, my MOM probably knows all about Dark Lord Hillary's latest panic attacks thanks to Wikileaks, and she's really really old!  Give it up, guys-- in the information age, it's going to be increasingly difficult to keep what you had for lunch secret from the general public.  It's out!  You can't wish the leak away!  How about instead working on actually keep what's STILL secret a secret?  Hmmm?
