From the article's intro: "The massive dump of US military secrets about the Afghan war - including possible evidence of war crimes - is believed to have come from the detained Army intel analyst. Philip Shenon reports he may not have been the lone leaker."

We are going to return to our original fully-moderated format in the comments section.

The abusive complaints in the comment sections are just too far out of control at this point and have become a significant burden on our staff. As a result, our moderators will review all comments prior to publication. Comments will no longer go live immediately. Please be patient and check back.

To improve your chances of seeing your comment published, avoid confrontational or antagonistic methods of communication. Really that is the problem we are confronting.

We encourage all views. We discourage ad hominem disparagement.

Only 3 possible tales? How about: "Our democracy is better than theirs, our religion is better than theirs, our ends justify our means, and after we and Israel go to war with Iran, no one will care about Afghanistan and Pakistan except the people who live there, and they don't appreciate our values anyhow, so what do they know about the great struggle to preserve freedom on earth?"

Stop and think a bit. These people, regardless of their beliefs are, they are human beings like you and I. No country in the world has the right to impose its culture upon others. Get the hell out of that country! Live and let live...

This war is being fought with so few Al Queda, it is a joke. It's no joke when the betrayal by Pakistan is revealed, the knowledge about innocent people dying, the military not coming clean with disturbing facts is told by a young soldier. He should not be punished.
Haven't we had enough of the role of being "bad guys" in the middle east? That role has now spilled over to the mirror this Wikileaks reports as we see ourselves in an honest light. Not a pretty picture.

Vietnam redeaux. Pentagon papers? Daniel Ellsberg? When's it going to end? Will we again see choppers flying from the rooftop of an American embassy? This time it'll be Kabul instead of Saigon. What's the difference? Same BS war, different country. When are we going to learn our lesson?

Perhaps Bradley Manning and Julian Assange heard Daniel Ellsberg's plea to reveal the truth about the wars our "leaders" have gotten us into. When I first heard Mr. Ellsberg make this plea, I hoped but doubted that he'd be heard but anyone with access to secret information. Now, I believe his plea had an impact.
