I must be forthcoming. I have not read the information leaked. I simply answered yes because I was always lead to believe that loose lips sink ships.

But, on the other hand, it could quite possibly save the lives of our troops. If the puplic gets the sense that they have been lied to by the war profiteers, and pull their collective support from the war, and they have to bring our children home, it might save their lives.

But for now, I'm stickin' with the loose lips thing.

People talk about the Taliban, Al Quaeda and other terrorist groups using this and other information as propaganda... as if they didn't have enough propaganda to use already. I'm sure the people over there know more about what's going on than we do in America. They know about the civilian deaths... these documents simply add to the list of reasons why terrorists or wannabe terrorists hate America. They'd hate America just as much even without these documents. So I chose "other".

Directly, probably not. Indirectly, possibly. A danger to those who are aiding our troops and have been named by WikiLeaks, absolutely, and their families as well.
