White House Urges WikiLeaks to Not Publish More Secrets
VOA News 30 July 2010



The White House is urging the website WikiLeaks to not publish any more classified documents related to the Afghan war, saying it is important that no more damage be done to U.S. national security.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told NBC television Friday that all the administration can do is implore whoever has the documents to not post them.

He said a Taliban spokesman in the region stated that the Taliban is already going through the tens of thousands of documents that have already been posted to find the names of people who cooperated with international and American forces in Afghanistan....

.....Thursday, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his source "might already have on their hands the blood of a young soldier or that of an Afghan family."

...In a news conference in London on Monday, the WikiLeaks founder said the website has held back some 15,000 files from the approximate 96,000 documents it received in the leak. He said those documents are being reviewed, and that some will be redacted and released.

In a separate development, the U.S. military says an American soldier suspected of leaking military secrets to WikiLeaks has been moved from Kuwait to a military jail in Virginia.

Army Private First Class Bradley Manning was flown to Quantico Marine Base to await trial for leaking the top-secret information.

He was arrested in June for allegedly passing on to WikiLeaks a classified video of a 2007 helicopter strike in Iraq that killed two Iraqis who were on assignment for the Reuters news agency.....

Afghanistan war logs: Massive leak of secret files exposes truth of occupation

A huge cache of secret US military files today provides a devastating portrait of the failing war in Afghanistan, revealing how coalition forces have killed hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents, Taliban attacks have soared and Nato commanders fear neighbouring Pakistan and Iran are fuelling the insurgency.

The disclosures come from more than 90,000 records of incidents and intelligence reports about the conflict obtained by the whistleblowers' website Wikileaks in one of the biggest leaks in US military history. The files, which were made available to the Guardian, the New York Times and the German weekly Der Spiegel, give a blow-by-blow account of the fighting over the last six years, which has so far cost the lives of more than 320 British and more than 1,000 US troops.

Their publication comes amid mounting concern that Barack Obama's "surge" strategy is failing and as coalition troops hunt for two US naval personnel captured by the Taliban south of Kabul on Friday.....

Wikileaks is just another arm of the CIA, unfortunately.

The purpose is to "leak" specific information, and to lure whistleblowers in. I would not necessarily dismiss their findings, however, it is more important to ask why they are "leaking" this information in the first place.

The founder of Wikileaks recently commented that the 9/11 conspiracy is a false one. Now, anyone with a brain knows that 9/11 was a false flag terrorist attack meant to usher in the Patriot Act and get America to go to war.


Think of the end of Orwells 1984, the conspiracy was started by conspirators to lure it's opponents into a trap.

Very interesting points here.

However, my concern is also for the countless servicemen who have become disallusioned between what they are told in the military and what they actually live and see and are ordered to do while serving.

There are many more men out there like this PFC Manning who is now going to be the "scape-goat" for these so-called "leaks."

I have known and spoken to veterans from every US military involvement from the Korean War to now, and they all have truths which don't add up with the "official lies."

These lies also contribute to the PTSD many of our veterans suffer after returning from deployment.

It is mentally and emotionally difficult for them to compartmentalize their own ethics and value systems with the atrocities they see, experience and do with what the US government tells them and what they tell the world.

With the new discovery of precious minerals i Afghanistan , the list of atrocities will continue, and permanent bases will probably be made.
