    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.

    And their families. What an odd view of the world you have.

    Hawks conveniently forget that we invaded a helpless, poor third world country for political reasons, not because it was a threat, so sentiment should be with them, not the big bad US bullies.

    If you don't like the U.S., perhaps you should get the hell out.

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?

    Names of Afghans who aided the Coalition needed to be made public? Are you ****ing kidding me? This guy gave material aid and comfort to the enemy, he is guilty of treason.

    I am a left winger, and I think your position in this thread is not just wrong, but vile.
