Yes, I get the fact the documents smear the war and that the US government spins the facts. I also get that there’s a damage control media campaign in progress. But this former General makes excellent points that I only see the Wikileaks people making indignant hand waving responses to. And I can totally see how the leaks advantage America’s enemies.
If this is true it undermines the whole transparency case Assange is making and shames everyone involved. Investigative journalism is not about enabling the enemy to kill more people, regardless of the war disgrace being exposed
While at first this sounds wonderful, it acts so fast that I have to wonder what other effects it might have. Still, I want some!
