Yeah, that's going to happen!!

The Pentagon says that WikiLeaks should return the classified documents involved in the on-going controversy about their release on that Website.

That is simply not going to happen. You can characterize what WikiLeaks is doing as a crusade or as journalism, but it has started something that cannot be stopped. Nor, in my opinion, should it. Whether you agree with what WikiLeaks has done is not the point. The larger issue is how the Web is now part of any conversation about media ethics, the First Amendment and similar issues.
