[Christian Science Monitor] Web’s identity crisis: Tool of freedom or repression?

I read an interesting article this morning from the Christian Science
Monitor that points out the same Internet that helped drive the
democracy movement in Egypt facilitated Julian Assange and his
decision to disclose diplomatic cables that were clearly gained
illicitly and by that disclosure put many lives at risk.
“Policymakers, diplomats, and military officials must harness the
Internet’s profound possibilities while managing its capabilities to
destroy innocent people and harm democracies throughout the world.”.
Well said.
