Re: WikiLeaks’ Afghanistan Disclosures Are A Dud

Apparently, not entirely — for the Taliban

As I said, reporters cannot possibly understand the potential impact of such disclosures on people on the ground.  To my own discredit, I was focused on the direct impact on our soldiers and U.S. war policy, and I neglected to think about the impact on Afghans who have been helping them.  So did WikiLeaks.  When Afghan informants start to die, and it appears that they will, their blood is on the hands of Julian Assange and his associates.

Somehow, I doubt that will stop them from patting themselves on the back for “bravely” “speaking truth to power” from the safety of their offices.  And I have no doubt that the left will continue to honor WikiLeaks for revealing not much at the expense of many locals.  Funny how they only care about those who oppose us.
