Wikileaks feeding information to our enemies?

Or did they not think ahead to something like this happening?

  • They also use the NYT. And both should be tried as traitors. Roosevelt woul not have put up with that.

  • Yes. I feel its an OPSEC violation, and I am very happy that the soldier who leaked the information is receiving a harsh punishment.

  • The punishment needs to be harsh enough to make anyone else think more than twice about doing the same later on.

  • Can't the government shut down Wikileaks? Is this not the first time they have done this? And, this is one of the reasons citizens don't need to know all the military knows and does. People like to talk, not to mention the hysteria it causes.

  • I find it interesting that PBO's WH doesn't stop the publication. (as I understand it, Wikileaks gives the WH advance notice and the opportunity to say "don't let that out" and they get no dialogue with the WH) The Pentagon says nothing either (probably under orders from the WH) What does PBO plan to gain from this? He always seems to have an angle and turn something around and try to use it to his advantage and against someone. What does he think will happen to benefit him?

  • More soldiers dying= more people uneducated about what's really going on screaming to bring them home=Obama looking like the hero when he does it

  • I looked at this site and you'd have to be pretty darn interested in what happened daily to actually get on there and read every freaking thing listed. It's almost impossible to find or understand that crap.
