Recently over 90,000 sensitive U.S. Army files were released to be viewed by the world, these files contained very 'sensitive' and 'classified' materials. The man responsible is 22-year old Bradley Manning who was arrested for releasing additional 'sensitive' materials in June of this year. Manning's accomplice was an online hacker by the name of Adrian Lamo to whom Manning confessed to disclosing over 260,000 military files to the world wide web. Manning even confessed to being responsible for the leak of the "collateral murder" video which surfaced earlier this year (see link at bottom). In that video you see a group of what appears to be a band of Call of Duty players who got ahold of real weapons and an Army uniform torch 8 seemingly harmless Iraqi individuals. So what I'm saying is 1)What asshole gave those guys guns and
2)Good for Manning going down for a greater good
All of the documents leaked can be viewed at http://www.wikileaks.com/

And here is the link to the Collateral Murder videos http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/05/wikileaks-exposes-video-o_n_525569.html

Normally I'm all for the war in Iraq I thought some of those assholes had it coming but these are those American assholes that make me second guess the choice to go to war

What do you guys think? http://d.yimg.com/a/p/ap/20100706/capt.28557bb9afc74320936f14179dc539ae-2da8f28263134277a929d330eb692865-0.jpg?x=200&y=311&q=85&sig=l_ujia2YVPVFDDnk3nOYCA-- ◄ Bradley Manning

"Whistleblower" is never a nice mantle to have to wear. A lot of shmucks wear that name, and so do a lot of heroes. Problem is, it's really hard to tell them all apart.

I think that the army should have higher standards, giving some of these people guns is insane. I think what Manning did was a good thing, people should know these sides of war as well. It's just like how the US wouldn't let people take pictures of the American coffins, they want people to think that everything is just fine, when it really isn't.

This is far from confusing. Why is the army hiding so much information to the people about this war?

One of the upper ranked army officials said that the knowledge in those files could put America in jeopardy of more attacks. Or so I read

Well, America isn;t in a good streak recently. Even wit the whole thing in Israel and everything.

They always say that. They've cried wolf one too many times with that line.
