WikiLeaks’ “Afghan War Diary” minimized by BBC News

Someone on the BBC News World Service just attempted to minimize the effects of the release of over 91,000 reports on events in Afghanistan by saying the massive document leak is a “treaure trove for historians” but that the picture shown by the reports is not “very different” from what is already known.

If you’ve managed to miss the online disclosures so far, here’s an explanatory page from WikiLeaks to get you started on a topic that’s going to be around for a long time.

July 25’s Full Moon has brought the release by WikiLeak’s Julian Assange (on July 25) of revelations of a lot of formerly hidden information on what the US occupation is really like, and something tells me that at least some of the intell in these documents may be quite okay for ‘leaking’ as far as the White House (and perhaps the Pentagon brass?) is concerned for it lets a very expensive cat out of a limpingly bankrupt bag.

And you know that if you want info to go public in the biggest way possible, debut it a few hours before the light of a Full Moon!

Now the White House has condemned the leak and predictably cites ‘national security’…but what stands out to me is the assertion that soldiers’ lives are put at risk by the leak of documents.

AS IF sending our troops into an insurgent war based on trumped up intell hasn’t done precisely that already thousands of times over – and lied about it!!!

Plus, this leak of US military documents may lend new meaning to today’s (July 26, 2010) Saturn/Uranus opposition with governmental Saturn’s status quo needs vs Uranus’ urge for progress, independence, and freedom of information.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
