wikileaks 'iraq war diaries' largest classified military leak in history

wikileaks 'iraq war diaries' largest classified military leak in historyfrom wikileaks: At 5pm EST Friday 22nd October 2010 WikiLeaks released the largest classified military leak in history. The 391,832 reports (‘The Iraq War Logs’), document the war and occupation in Iraq, from 1st January 2004 to 31st December 2009 (except for the months of May 2004 and March 2009) as told by soldiers in the United States Army. Each is a ‘SIGACT’ or Significant Action in the war. They detail events as seen and heard by the US military troops on the ground in Iraq and are the first real glimpse into the secret history of the war that the United States government has been privy to throughout.

The reports detail 109,032 deaths in Iraq, comprised of 66,081 ‘civilians’; 23,984 ‘enemy’ (those labeled as insurgents); 15,196 ‘host nation’ (Iraqi government forces) and 3,771 ‘friendly’ (coalition forces). The majority of the deaths (66,000, over 60%) of these are civilian deaths. That is 31 civilians dying every day during the six year period. For comparison, the ‘Afghan War Diaries’, previously released by WikiLeaks, covering the same period, detail the deaths of some 20,000 people. Iraq during the same period, was five times as lethal with equivalent population size.

The released documents show the daily life of the conflict, as U.S. soldiers have experienced it. In addition, it appears from the thousands threat analysis, attack reports and arrest records but also reconstruct exactly how has unfolded, the Islamic brother struggle between Shiites and Sunnis, how society brutalized, such as abductions, executions and torture of detainees routine was. Even activists from neighboring Syria, Iran and Jordan mingled the documents revealed in this war. It is shown again and again. A war benefits no one. Only the people suffer.

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE, THE SO CALL " LEAKS" BRING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING NEW ON WHAT COULD BE FOUND ON OPEN SOURCES AND INTERNETS FOR YEARS AND ACTUALLY PROMOTE THE WAR ON IRAN AGENDA.
WHO BENEFITS ? THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT NO DOUBT , DID WIKILEAKS EVER LEAKED DOCUMENTS ON THE CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST PALESTINIANS BY THE ISRAELI ARMY ? NO !
ONLY THE POLITICALLY NAIVE WILL NOT REALIZE THAT THESE
" REVELATIONS" ARE JUST CAREFULLY SELECTED
"LEAKS" (BY PENTAGON INSIDERS) TO BUILD WIKILEAKS CREDIBILITY WITHOUT REVEALING REAL SECRETS.
THIS WAY WIKILEAKS WILL BE ABLE TO DISSEMINATE DISINFORMATION IN A LATER TIME.
BUT ABOVE ALL THESE "LEAKS" ARE HYPED BY OUR CORRUPTED MAINSTREAM MEDIA WHO WORKS HAND TO HAND WITH OUR GOVERNMENT TO JUSTIFY THE FUTURE "CENSURE" OF THE INTERNET WHICH IS ON THE NEW WORLD ORDER AGENDA.
THEY CANNOT STAND THE FREE FLOW OF INFORMATION OUTSIDE THEIR NETWORK SO THESE "LEAKS" ARE THE PERFECT EXCUSE TO JUSTIFY NEW LEGISLATIONS ON THE INTERNET WITH A COALITION OF GOVERNMENTS AND CORPORATE MEDIA. THEY ARE ALREADY SUGGESTING THAT THESE "LEAKS" ARE PUTTING OUR TROOPS IN DANGER (A BIG LIE)
AMERICANS AND THE REST OF THE WORLD SHOULD REMEMBER THAT THE SAME MEDIA WHO IS ACTUALLY PROMOTING WIKILEAKS ALL OVER TV AND NEWS PAPERS TOLD US THAT IRAQ HAD WMD'S IN 2002, AND THAT THE SWINE FLU WAS GOING TO KILL MILLIONS IF WE WERE NOT TAKING THE VACCIN BY SEPTEMBER LAST YEAR..DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT THESE LEAKS ARE "EXPOSING THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX" OUR ACTUALLY SERVE THE WAR AGENDA ?
WHEN REAL DAMAGING SECRETS ARE REVEALED (IT IS EXTREMELY RARE) THE PENTAGON BLOCK ITS ACCESS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC PERFECT EXAMPLE :THE BOOK BY A MILITARY INTELLIGENCE OFFICER ENTITLED "DARK HEART" REVEALING THAT WE INFILTRATES AND MONITOR MUSLIM TERROR CELLS FOR DECADES WAS CONFISCATED BY THE PENTAGON AND SOME PARTS HAD TO BE MODIFIED WHILE THE BOOK IS COMPLETELY IGNORED BY OUR NEWS MEDIA, TOO BUSY HYPING WIKILEAKS AND THEIR USELESS "REVELATIONS".
THE WAR ON TERROR IS A MULTI BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS FOR THE DEFENSE CONTRACTORS,
FOR WHO DO YOU THINK WIKILEAKS IS REALLY WORKING FOR
SUCKERS?

Ran across some interesting information regarding Julian Assange through Dave Emory's podcast.

Dave Emory is a fascism researcher and has made some interesting connections regarding everyone's favorite leaker - Julian Assange. Apparently Assange has some familial connections to an organization known as "The Cult" and is likely a "busted" hacker that is being used as a counterintelligence (disinformation?) asset (this revealed in the second of Emory's two shows devoted to Wikileaks).

Given the ease with which Assange has been able to reach major media outlets, I am not surprised that he is not (possibly) what we have been told he is.
