Reaction to the leak of thousands of Afghanistan war documents

Some 91,000 classified documents on the Afghanistan war were made public by an organization called Wikileaks.  The documents are described as battlefield reports compiled by various military units that provide an unvarnished look at combat in the past five years, including U.S. frustration over reports Pakistan secretly aided insurgents and civilian casualties at the hand of U.S. troops.  In many respects, the documents are more grim than the official portrayal.   Read the full story by clicking here.

Why not take a poll. The citizens of the United States should be able to vote on what they feel ... United we stand ..divided we fall.
Every channel on TV takes a poll on something that is unimportant.. to most... funny to others. This is a decision that should be made by the people involved. It involved every citizen in the USA. It was tragic. It deserves to be respected.

I really think the governent is full of bull****. They try to tell you everything is okay when it really isn't. Why are they hiding all this info? They wanted this war. Honestly they are scared to face the facts. There's probably more stuff that they are hiding.

THIS POINTS TO THE FACT THAT WE ARE WASTING TIME, MONEY AND LIVES IN A PLACE WHERE WE ARE NOT WELCOME. AL QAIDA IS AN INTERNATIONAL ENTITY. IT IS NOT CONFINED TO AFGHANISTAN. EVEN IF BIN LADEN IS CAPTURED/KILLED, IT WILL NOT STOP AN ORGANIZATION THIS BIG. THE PRICE THE AMERICAN, AFGHANI AND PAKISTANI PEOPLE ARE PAYING IS NOT WORTH IT. AND WE CAN'T WAGE WAR IN EVERY COUNTRY WHERE WE THINK THEY ARE OPERATING. IT'S TIME FOR A DIFFERENT STRATEGY. BRUTE FORCE IS NOT ALWAYS THE ANSWER.

One year ago, anyone with access to Google could have seen this coming. Analysts have been saying that Pakistan harbors the Taliban to some degree all along. What is most surprising is that the public, politicians, and the media start caring about this only when the evidence is staring them in the face.
