Actually, the White House probably loves it. It gives them a further excuse to censor the information that is given to the people, thus increasing their power over the people.

Maybe the White House hasn't read the First Amendment to our Constitution.

If we didn't have a government that lied to us so much, this wouldn't even be an issue.

Kudos to Wikileaks.

Honestly, did our government give the same attention and assign the same priority to the leak in the Gulf as they are the leaks in their intelligence and AAR's? (After Action Reports)

All they want to do is suppress the ugly truth of a violent and miserable failure in Afghanistan, one that held little chance of a successful conclusion under the best of circumstances, but after years of initial neglect the chances for a successful conclusion today are almost zero

The mighty Russians were run out of Afghanistan with the help of Osama Bin Laden. For a while, the Mujahadeen were struggling. The US sent stinger missles. History is such a strange thing. The whole story should be on a giant mural somewhere. People forget what events lead up to war, and the pages are quickly stuffed into a bookcase. Daily images would serve to remind us of the alliances, double dealing, and outrages. I predict that the US will not conquer Afghanistan. Former US "buddies" are now trying to oust the infidels. I don't blame them. They are a tough bunch. Who wants to be occupied by Americans, and world wide corporate vampires ?

Obama should try "bowing" to Wikileaks and staff.

That seems to work....

I'm on the fence with this one. I'm not sure how leaking classified information is not borderline treason. Where do you draw the line on leaking national security information? A little scrutiny would be nice.
