Big news of the day is how "a huge cache of secret US military files" provides a "devastating portrait of the failing war in Afghanistan". They have been obtained by the "whistleblowers' website" Wikileaks in what is described as "one of the biggest leaks in US military history." The files have been made available to The Guardian, The New York Times and the German weekly Der Spiegel, with The Guardian in particular, pushing the boat out, running multiple stories and linking to the files.

Cry 'havoc' and let slip the logs of war.

Quote:
We even had The Times report that: "UN officials have likened the theft of e-mails from university climate researchers to the Watergate scandal, " and that was after them claiming that "computer hackers were probably paid by people intent on undermining the Copenhagen summit."


The bluster about how those emails never proved nuffink didn't quite square with the messages coming from the top and their chums in the press did it.

Time line of IED attacks in Afghanistan. Bigger graphic here. The distribution is a sample from the peak in August 2009. It's fairly representative. Attacks most heavy south of Kabul and in the South West - i.e. the Pashtun regions (there are also small Pashtun communities in the north).

It's worse than hyprocisy. It's incidents like these that expose the MSM for the useless tossers they are. It's no wonder they are losing money hand over fist - long may it continue.

We have data which should be freely available (publicly funded scientific research) being witheld by a cabal of scientists using all means at their disposal (including recommending to colleagues to delete sensitive emails under the guise of 'housekeeping') to thwart FoI requests on one hand and stolen military data which should under no means be made public (at least before a fair amount of time has passed) being splashed across front pages and which will no doubt be paraded as some sort of victory for democracy and freedom of speech.

Pathetic.

Well, the MSM has its own, mostly misspelt, vocabulary depending on its politics...it's an ancient trait; some folk liberate things while others steal them.
A good current example is: The Gumment and/or 'die Arschlöcher'. :lol:
