Re: My Two Pence.

while I share the sentiment about what wikileaks should have and shouldn't have, I'm pretty sure you underestimate the volume of information and the volume of work it would have required to parse that info. I think it's probably something well beyond capacity of a large organization to vet that info, and they were hardly more than a bunch of volunteers. And even if they had had large organization behind, there's always a high chance the other side would find enough examples of insufficient vetting, to make a point (as they did), that it was all anti-patriotic, blah,blah,blah, endengering lives of our brave soldiers, the usual damage limitation. So what do you do when you find yourself in their position? And, really, how many lives were lost? Ah, that's "classified" too...
