1. The Ethics of WikiLeaks

I have to confess that I was not familiar with the Web site WikiLeaks until last April when it posted a video that purported to show U.S. forces killing Iraqi civilians. Then in July, the site released an Afghan War Diary that included nearly 77,000 documents related to the war in Afghanistan, many of which had been classified documents, and some of which allegedly reveal wrongdoings by the U.S. military in Afghanistan. Shortly thereafter, Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old U.S. Army intelligence analyst, was arrested for leaking the documents. It’s not clear at this point whether Manning was responsible for the leak or what charges the government might eventually bring against him.

Terry, thank you for this unequivocal analysis of Trump's character. As Michelle said, his vulgarity makes females feel vulnerable, whether we talk about it or not. I hate thinking about my daughter living a world where Trump has so much power. Your candor and courage mean a lot.

Terry, again another excellent piece. You've highlighted the inaccuracies in what Trump proclaims, his inability to accept responsibility for anything he says or does, his unstable and vacillating temperament, and his lack of respect for not only women, but anyone he deems different, weak, or a threat to him. Thank you for taking the time and the risk to publish your thoughts. Vote Hillary and VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS FOR CONGRESS! Another 4 years of gridlock would be disastrous.

Terry, I can only concur with every statement you've penned. Well, that and vote for Hillary. The aspect of his character - character?! - that has had the greatest impact on me during this horrific campaign season is not his vile nature, but rather the vindictive utterances he has caused to spout from the mouths of people whom I love and otherwise respect. I cannot even allow myself to consider what his Presidency would mean for America, which is already great.

Terry, your comments are right on target. Not only am I disgusted by Trump's ignorance and self-centered vulgarity, but even more frightened by the possibility that, as our nation's head, he could impulsively plunge us into situations with the rest of the world as well as ourselves.
