It surprises me how shocked and angry folks are about "leaks" and "leakers'. This is how a democracy works and how it should work. Every nutty thing that was said about Obama and Clinton was welcomed by the right as fact.
This is not how democracy works. Never mind that we are not a democracy. This is how 3rd world crap holes work and it is not OK.
We have a whistleblower act for this very reason. when people think they see something wrong they can bring it to the attention of the appropriate people and what they are looking at can be evaluated within the big picture.
You are not correct when you say we were all happy to have it done in the last admin. I am never happy for it. People I know and love depend sometimes on classified info staying that way. People who help us and thus help the people I know and love, depend on info not being leaked.
There is no excuse for it and I happily would agree to death by firing squad for anyone caught doing it. Little Miss Manning can rot in hell where he/she belongs as far as I am concerned. I only hope it is successful in it's next attempted exit as no one will be watching it to intervene. The rest of them can join it if we ever get our hands on them.
