I don't get why people are referring to him as a whistleblower. He blew the whistle on nothing. His party trick was accessing confidential documents and publishing them. As any fule kno that is going to get you into trouble, and there would have to be one helluva public interest defence (and given that Wikileaks admitted that they hadn't read or redacted any of the material they handed over to the Guardian that might be tricky), so you should be prepared for the possible consequences of your actions.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
