Goodbye State Department Job

Uh oh. It looks like my benign support of Wikileaks on this blog may cancel me out of any future working for the U.S. government. (See here.) Of course, this is if my talk about the Alaska Independence Party didn't already disqualify me.

Never fear! Being a blogger definitely has more lucrative prospects, so I'm not going to let myself be shut up about what I believe in. Governments need to be accountable to those who supposedly determine them - i.e. the democratic societies they serve. Especially in war, information on corruption and abuse must be made public so that justice can be served and changes in policy initiated.
