This is just plain out ridiculous. I won't say anymore because it isn't very nice.


I hope if anything comes from these leaks, it's that the people realize just how much of a failure this war is and how futile it is to continue.

I'm hoping the outcome is that whomever the traitor is will be executed as they have now endangered the lives of thousands of young American military.

I disagree. If after reading the WikiLeaks people start asking the question "Why are we there?", it will be beneficial to our troops security, not detrimental. The war is lost. It's going to take bankruptcy for us to realize it and pull out. Our national security is worse off for us being over there.

If any laws were broken in this leak then reasonable punishment should be forthcoming upon the guilty.

If America knew their history they never would have got involved in a longstanding effort in Afghanistan. They should have read Rudyard Kipling! Of course, American schools today are too busy teaching contemporary nonsense to teach actual history.

From what I've heard of the leaks so far (I don't know how true or false this is) is that the information leaked is rather old, or at least old as compared to what's going on there now. This may or may not make a difference as to it's effectivness, either negative or positive.

History is very clear that any protracted conflict in Afghanistan by outsiders will end in failure. The topography as well as the governmental makeup of Afghanistan has made it thus throughout time.

OBama, it seems, made a serious error while campaigning in determining to proclaim he would push for victory in Afghanistan, even declaring it the main front that had to be won, while proclaiming he'd get America out of Iraq.

Now that the situation in Afghanistan has heated up he's boxed himself in by his imprudent stance and comments. Can or will he extricate from Afghanistan or will he keep Americans fighting there in order to not appear weak or having given up?

I want to know how he got these documents in the first place. TRC you said my thoughts exactly ;I just wasn't going to say them cause they weren't very nice.


He had a clearance to get/have/read the documents. I don't know how he got them to wikileaks but prOBably something like used a thumbdrive or printed them out or whatever.

Having clearance to view documents does not give one the authority to release them (I know you didn't say it does, Dennis, I'm just amplifying on your thoughts). Releasing documents for which one has clearance to view but not disseminate is treason. I realize that there is freedom of speech in this country, but the last couple of generations seems to have no comprehension of the secrecy that is necessary for certain things during times of war. And now over in the Middle East, it is being spread that America doesn't take care of her spies...Imagine if we needed help from someone else. Think they'll help? And get their names put on a document that could be leaked so that the enemy can find out and kill them and their family? Ha.

You are correct and it's very disheartening to know people don't hold to the characteristic of loyalty much anymore. He deserves to be locked up for a long time (although, the death penalty might be considered). Our secrecy is supposed to be for life (or until those particular documents are declassified). It seems this generation has little regard for secrets (that have to do with national security) but more importantly...for the lives of others. They think in the now instead of figuring out what the consequences will be from their actions. Edited by DennisDurty

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
