It is more distressing that the billions of dollars that have been allocated to
the Pentagon result in a "WikiLeaks" release? Did the Pentagon want this stuff
out there? What about our troops? Does the world think they are somehow
superhuman? Are they to be in all places at all times overseeing everyone?
What kind of nonesense is this?Do we not understand the cultures of
the Middle East? It is tribal-there is no history of how to be a democracy. Do
we and the world really think we can somehow go into a country and inject them
with the knowledge and experience of freedom?All any of us can do if
make sure an opportunity exists. You can't force people to behave
honorably-especially in War. All the rules of civility are gone in a war. So
what is WikiLeaks point? People behave badly in War?
Good for wikileaks. I find it very interesting that
people seem more concerned about the release of documents rather than being
concerned about the abuses contained in the documents.
Why hasn't this been stopped? Everybody wants more transparency in

many lives and threatening foreign governments. You mean to tell me
that we can't stop the owner (San Francisco) from releasing this, in the
interest of national security? Baloney. Is this Obama's October surprise? To put
the focus on past administrations?
This has nothing to do with Obama. None of us need reminding of the atrocities

This stinks to high heaven. There are those out there that would just have the
world become caotic and totally out of order. Where terror and disorder would
rein supreme. The sad thing is that I believe that this administration would
love a world turned upside down like this. Heck the presidents friends and
associates are the true radical marxists of our time. Why wouldn't he want it
that way? Someday people will recognize this community organizer for what he
KM, I challenge you to go without listening to, or watching Brother Beck for 1
week. I've wasted my 2nd allotted post on this challenge.
And the misinformation campaign by the media begins.Let's not report
on what's actually in the documents - including the war crimes - no, let's
question whether they were "politically timed", instead, because that's a MUCH
more important issue!Typical.
