    You were the one who stated that she didn't have a duty to expose war crimes, she does.

    and I also asked why didn't she bring it to her direct superiors or a US politician.

    Most likely because they would cover it up? (U.S. Massacre and Cover-up in Iraq Exposed by WikiLeaks | Accuracy.Org)

    I'm not saying she knew that they would cover it up, but it doesn't take much to put two and two together and see that as a serious possibility. What does this have to do with her joining the military?

    He joined (past tense) the military knowing he would take an oath and would have to keep national secrets. If he was hesitant or mistrusted the US establishment he would should of never joined.

    This notion that the military/government release everything to the public is comical, War is dirty and trust me something's need to be swept under the carpet to protect the people you are defending. The public don't want to know how you won they want to welcome home the troops and wave the flag. That is how war has been fought for thousands of years and Bradley is kidding herself if she thinks she has changed anything.

    Trust can be eroded my friend. Trust, as you know, is something that can easily be broken and takes forever to rebuild. A loss in trust can cause us to do things that we usually would not.

    "This notion that the military/government release everything to the public is comical," I never said that at all.

    I'm sure Guy Fawkes would of had a good number of supporters if he had been caught in todays world.
