If this is a matter of national security, can this guy be assasinated or something? I'm just curious. It seems wierd that someone could so openly post top secret material that endangers both our troops, and our country, without any recourse.
With the gutless wonder currently occupying the White House? No way. He'd rather see Americans die.

You continue to try to justify this war that essentially bankrupted our nation, killed over 150K women and children, 4k+ of our soldiers... based on this.
Iraq was not a threat to the American People... they probably still had some gas, so what nothing justifies what we did and subsequently allowed to happen..
As mentioned before, Iran was the dire enemy of Iraqi's and they would have had no role in Iraq if we did not invade.. if you want some real info on this suggest you read Shelton's Book.. or you can just stick to blogs..
At some point Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz started pushing hard to attack Iraq. In their minds, this disaster could be turned around into an ideal opportunity to end the problems we were having with Saddam Hussein -- just blame the 911 attacks on him.
I did not agree with that because there was absolutely zero intelligence that would indicate that Iraq was involved in the 911 attack. Nor was there intell linking either Saddam or anyone else in Iraq to Usama bin Laden. Both Mueller and Tenet had just made it clear that Usama bin Laden and his organization were responsible for these terrorist acts. I wondered how Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz planned to blame this on Saddam since neither the FBI nor CIA had one shred of intell bringing Saddam into the picture.
Rumsfeld's didn't really seem to care what Tenet and Mueller had briefed because this was a golden opportunity to go after Saddam Hussein. In his mind everyone had to know that there were links between UBL, the al Qaida organization, and Saddam Hussein. We gotta get this guy was all we were hearing from Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz, referring to Saddam, not bin Laden.It was almost likeparanoia.
Colin and I lobbied just as strongly in the other direction, based on the intelligence provided by the FBI and CIA. It didn't stop.
“We like to say that dependability is more important than ability,” Bill Belichickism....
Why the hell would you even bother posting that link? We might just as easily have found the same thing if we demolished Ecuador. There was nothing on that list of "WMD's" that couldn't have been found in 100 other countries after we went in and destroyed them and occupied them for ten years. That's why we went to Iraq? That's no justification for all the dead and maimed soldiers and innocent Iraqi civilians.
..."The WMD diehards will likely find some comfort in these newly-WikiLeaked documents. Skeptics will note that these relatively small WMD stockpiles were hardly the kind of grave danger that the Bush administration presented in the run-up to the war..." NO *****
AND, OF COURSE, MORE TERRIFYING DANGER WE HAD TO CORRECT...OH WAIT...THIS IS AFTER THE INVASION, TOO.
"But the more salient issue may be how insurgents and Islamic extremists (possibly with the help of Iran) attempted to use these lethal and exotic arms. As Spencer noted earlier, a January 2006 war log claims that “neuroparalytic” chemical weapons were smuggled in from Iran.
That same month, then “chemical weapons specialists” were apprehended in Balad. These “foreigners” were there specifically “to support the chemical weapons operations.” The following month, an intelligence report refers to a “chemical weapons expert” that “provided assistance with the gas weapons.” What happened to that specialist, the WikiLeaked document doesn’t say."
