Comments:US State department official resigns after Wikileaks comments

I guess free speech doesn't allow one to say what they think AND keep their job!
He was the spokesperson of the State Department. Anything he said is essentially the opinion of the department or could be interpreted as such.
That's ridiculous reasoning, and you know it.
The way they are treating him is stupid and counter productive. I wouldn't have resigned for saying that.
What about the incompetent jerks who allowed this kid to have access to all of this information in the first place? Why aren't they rotting naked in jail too?
This whole "jail time without a trial" makes me very uncomfortable.
You would resign if the alternative was to get your tail publicly fired. Face it whatever you think about how the Military is treating the poor little traitor, the Commander in Chief is ultimately responsible for what is going on with the little twerp. That was a criticism of the President. And good little members of the ones government can criticize anything but the President. He does, as a political appointee, serve at the pleasure of the President. I guess he did not give the President pleasure, and got told "my way, or the Highway. Hit the road Jack." Sad that so many who hold “opinions” do not know enough to intelligently form opinions or articulate them.
