  •  That's the thing. We don't know and any (6+ / 0-)

    evidence of direct linkage is going to be suspect.  But what if one innocent person dies, or two, or more?  Is that worth it?  Are we antiwar types wiling to accept our own collateral damage?  In a way, we're in our own war.  But there has to be limits or we become them.  He should have redacted the names.  That doesn't mean I don't agree with the effort overall.

    •  Agreed. All such names should have (6+ / 0-)

      been redacted.  I would like evidence if any such names resulting in killing has occurred.  But whether or not it has happened, I agree.  Any names of such individuals should always be redacted.  

      •  It's the Military that was sloppy with names (4+ / 0-)

        WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has hit out at the US military, saying that it bears the ultimate responsibility for any deaths of Afghan informers in the wake of the publication by his organisation of 75,000 leaked files of American army secrets.

        Assange and WikiLeaks, the whistleblowers' website that publishes leaked documents from around the world, have come under increasing fire amid accusations that publishing the files put people's lives at risk. But in an interview with the Observer, Assange said the blame for any deaths lay squarely with US military authorities.

        "We are appalled that the US military was so lackadaisical with its Afghan sources. Just appalled. We are a source protection organisation that specialises in protecting sources and have a perfect record from our activities," he said.

        This is what chump Change looks like.
