    The sad thing is the main stream media won't cover this story at all. Only those who are aware of WikiLeaks will get to see the real cost of this so called war.

    They do indeed. So does that mean you also shrugged off all the terrorist attacks as well? After all, bad things happen in war.

    Not once a decent and democratic government with an underlying socialist agenda was installed. [​IMG]

    TBH I think this pretty much confirms that planning for the Afghan/Iraq militery movements were just poor. It was touched upon in the Chilcott inquery but this really confirms what a lot if us have ben thinking that there has been a clear lack of thought in this operation. On antoher note teh civilian casualites-wounded figures don't make for pretty reading.

    I heard about this too; I think the first time was the other day, but I only heard the name and not what was actually out, until I listened again today.

    Seriously, guys, if you don't want information leaked, then don't tell people stuff. [​IMG]

    Take things released on the internet, and within domestic news with a shaker full of salt. Also you have to learn to question things in a purely political BSed society. I wouldn't doubt that civilians were killed, that's just war. Not that this statement makes it right. I am sure other countries have done the same thing. Especially since the terrorists blend in with the locals. I am a true supporter of our military, not only do they help protect our country, but they are helping to train people to protect their own country. [​IMG]

    didn't this happen awhile ago? or is this another incident?

    i remember the dude got the information by bringing a blank cd into work labelled "Lady Gaga" and burning the information to the disc.

    And the people killed in terrorist attacks in America? I suppose that's just war as well. Oh wait, I see. Casualties are only tolerable if they don't share your nationality.

    No, this is something different to the last article. I think these documents have come from that guy, but this is a seperate news article.

    Thank you Dave! [​IMG]

    Yes, another incident.

    Now, of course, they label the CDs as Justin Bieber. No-one would ever check that for top-secret information.


    Warning: Spoilers inside!
