    So when will Wikileaks show the video of premeditated attacks on unarmed civilians by the armed gangsters who call themselves “jihadis” all over the world?

    Or is Assange only interested in crucifying military people who have made tragic mistakes, and disinterested in exposing the criminal activities of the terrorists?

    Don’t misunderstand: I support the prosecution of war criminals (such as G. W. Bush, D. Rumsfeld, and their cronies), but I also believe in utter annihilation of criminal gangs like Al Qaeda. They want to die for Allah, that’s fine with me. It’s the responsibility of ever world citizen to help them do that.

    Dotes – Part of what should set us apart from the jihadists and the extremists is the willingness and necessity of fessing up to mistakes like this. We live in a world of open information, and the death of 140 innocent people in a blundered military strike isn’t something that can be hidden. What support can we hope for if we are happy to look the other way, and call it an attack on the military when we point out the mistake? Are human lives really that cheap? If so, we aren’t much better than the terrorists, frankly.

    “The Pentagon and State Department both reacted angrily to the release, accusing Wikileaks of undermining support by posting the clip.”

    If Germany had had an Internet in 1942, and people like Manning and Assange, I’m sure the latter would have been criticized for lowering morale by showing clips of Auschwitz and Dachau.
