I originally thought no one was at risk from these leaks, but I was wrong. A large number of Afghans working less than openly for the US where named in the documents released. They are very much at risk.
Collaborators who get paid by us can only avoid detection for a while. Sooner of later they'll all be targets for the loyal patriots.
The fact that this information was so easy to obtain is startling, and that guy did commit a crime, but this is all information that needed to get out to the public. None of this information puts troops in danger that's ridiculous. I don't want to hear that oh well the President and press secretary said that it could potentially threaten troops. Of course they are going to put a negative spin on this, the Republicans would **** bricks if they said anything but that. This is made clear by the myriad of both Republican and Democratic pundits who've said that none of this information is really new.
This information needed to get to the public, and I'm glad that these guys did this, but they did break the law and they are going to face the consequences.
What qualifies you to make that statement of fact?
