Neo-Con Hypocrisy over WikiLeaks
Critics who say WikiLeaks has blood on its hands over the release of Afghan war logs are hypocritical because they ignore the actors who more directly split Afghan and coalition blood. Sunny Hundal at The Guardian says conservatives have confused the message for the messenger: "The case against WikiLeaks doesn't stand up to scrutiny. Has it endangered the lives of Afghanis? That's only plausible if you believe the Taliban are short of targets and without their own informants. The documents were already available to every soldier and contractor there. You know who's endangered the lives of Afghanis already? Nato forces, which were exposed as having deliberately covered up many examples of civilian casualties."
