Extraordinary Naivety and Arrogance

The Guardian has shown "extraordinary naivety and arrogance" over the publication of articles based on NSA documents leaked by the US whistleblower Edward Snowden, the former foreign secretary Jack Straw has said.
I'm not suggesting for a moment anybody in the Guardian gratuitously wants to risk anybody's life. But what I do think is that their sense of power of having these secrets and excitement – almost adolescent excitement – about these secrets has gone to their head.

"They're blinding themselves about the consequence and also showing an extraordinary naivety and arrogance in implying that they are in a position to judge whether or not particular secrets which they have published are not likely to damage the national interest, and they're not in any position at all to do that.
Extraordinary naivety and arrogance? You don't say, Jack.


P.S. For no particular reason, here's Lindsey and Miley.

Ick. Can that child please put her tongue back in her mouth?

And Miley should behave better, too.
