Submission + - WTF: Has US State Dept. not heard of encryption?

An anonymous reader writes: Governments have secrets. This is not news. People would like to know those secrets, even if it means breaking through doors. This also is not news. Yet, wikileaks has just released a busload of the US's secrets that hint the doors were pretty flimsy. Heads should roll. Not at wikileaks, but at the US State Dept. Have they not heard of using encryption? Has the dumbing down of the average person made encryption too hard of concept to grasp? Sheesh! I am interested in hearing comments from the Slashdot community.
