Latest news from the Vatican confidentiality scandal: Paolo Gabriele, the Papal butler, was arrested and charged with selling the Pope's confidential documents to an Italian journalist

"Troves" of secret documents have been leaked to the press, says CNN Vatican correspondent John Allen, everything from confidential correspondences between ambassadors, documents from the Vatican bank, detailed descriptions of Vatican finances, and even a "Borgias-esque" assassination plot against the pope.
Panelist John Fugelsang compared the Vatican leak to Wikileaks in that it was not so much the damaging content of the information that was leaked as the fact that information was leaked at all -- and by whom, for what reason.
