If they (Wikileaks) want to embarass our government officials for stupid things said and done, fine...But when national security is potentially compromised, or operatives are named, or our troops are put in further jeopardy, the leaks are wrong and those responsible should be held accountable, to a level of treason!

Were any specific operatives named or security compromised? I remember the government pre-condemning the release of the leaks for those reasons, but when they were actually released, it was pretty much just embarrassing stuff.
