A really interesting show you had last night.We could see Gen. Clark on the defensive having nothing much to offer. Julian clearly believes in what he is doing as a journalist.
Time for us the American public to sit up & take notice. Do we want our troops to be there for the next 50 years as one of the morons from The Republican leadership had said on CNN a few days back? Or forever as some politicians devoid of any intelligence, keep on suggesting??
Living in a town such as yours are millions of insurgent Palookastani's addicted to dunderhead rhetoric from right-wing flatuence spewing nutzi's...Expose the truth Wikileaks...it may set a few free who have wrapped themselves around ignorance...The mass anti-war demonstrations are long overdue to get the U.S. out of Iraq and Afghanistan...I have seen the enemy and he peers through the eyes of those who cast ballots in favor of right-wing policies...
Operation 'Ending' Freedom was the bastard child of Cheney-Bush-Rumsfeld and once the American people realize that they are also targets of opportunity by the policies enacted/instituted against them, maybe they will finally realize who the real enemy is.
Who is the real enemy of Operation 'Ending' Freedom? Supply the two missing letters and you will find the answer.
I beieve Julian and wikileaks are doing the right thing by continuously informing americans about the reality of our "war on terror". Every american should and needs to know the reality of this costly war. TO say that wikileaks is putting american lives at risk is completely absurd and is obviously an attempt by our government to point the finger at someone else once again. Our government has put these peoples lifes at risk. Wikileaks is a patriots information site, and hope more truth is revealed to american brainwashed masses.
Make BP and the other big oil companies have at least two ways each to stop similar leaks before oil drilling
off shore is resumed. President Obama kicked BP'S ass and made them put 20 billion dollars in a fund over republican
objections We need to put BP'S balls in a vice until everyone gets paid!
If BP fails to come up with the money, nationalize all their assets in America. read more internetfreepress.com

NATIONAL DEBT IS NOT YOURS OR YOUR CHILDREN OR YOUR GRANDCHILDREN
The Republican Party would be dead in the water if it didn't have this dead horse to beat.
THE BIGGEST LIE EVER PERPETRATED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY THE CONSERVATIVES AND CONGRESS IS TELLING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THE NATIONAL DEBT IS THEIR DEBT, THEIR CHILDREN’S DEBT AND THEIR GRANDCHILDREN’S DEBT. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE. THE GOVERNMENT’S DEBT IS THE GOVERNMENT’S DEBT AND NOT THE PEOPLE’S DEBT, AND THE GOVERNMENT IS IN A POSITION TO EASILY MANAGE THEIR DEBT.
CONSIDER THESE FACTS: THE TOTAL ASSETS OF THE U.S. ECONOMY IS $213 TRILLION, AND THE NATIONAL DEBT IS $13.1 TILLION, WHICH IS ONLY 6.1% OF THE TOTAL ASSETS.
THE GDP DOES NOT GO BACKTO ZERO ON DECEMBER THIRTY- FIRST OF EACH YEAR, BUT EACH MONTH KEEPS ADDING TO THE ECONOMIC ASSETS OF THE U.S. ECONOMY. ARTICLE
1, SECTION 8, OF THE CONSTITUTION GIVES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THE POWER TO BORROW MONEY ON ITS ASSETS, THE POWER TO TAX, AND THE
POWER TO CREATE MONEY.
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO OWE ONLY 6.1% OF YOUR ECONOMIC ASSETS , BE ABLE TO COLLECT TAXES FROM EVERYONE IN AMERICA, AND BE ABLE TO CREATE MONEY? THAT’S THE STATUS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, WHICH HAS THE MEANS TO COPE WITH ANY FINANCIAL SITUATION.
IF YOU ARE LOSING SLEEP OVER THE NATIONAL DEBT AND THINKING THAT SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE ARE GOING BROKE, GO BACK TO SLEEP. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. IF YOU WANT TO WORRY ABOUT THESE THINGS, DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE MONEY PART. ANY DEFICIT CAN BE MADE UP OUT OF GENERAL FUNDS.
THIS BIG LIE ABOUT THE NATIONAL DEBT STANDS IN THE WAY OF THE GOVERNMENT SPENDING AS MUCH MONEY AS IT SHOULD TO EDUCATE, TO PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT, TO HAVE UNIVERSAL
HEALTH CARE, TO KEEP A BALANCED MONEY SUPPLY AT ALL TIMES, AND TO INITIATE PROGRAMS TO PROVIDE GOOD HOUSING FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.
IN SUMMARY, YOU DON’T OWE A CENT ON THE NATIONAL DEBT, AND THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT BROKE BUT RATHER IT IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE.
WE NEED TO TAX LESS, BORROW LESS, AND CREATE MORE MONEY.
CONSERVATIVES STAND IN THE WAY OF PROGESSIVE IDEAS, RAILING AGAINST BIG GOVERNMENT AND TALKING ENDLESSLY ABOUT ELIMINATING ESSENTIAL PROGRAMS.
THE NEWS MEDIA SHOULD BE ASKING THESE PEOPLE WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING BIG GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS THEY WOULD DROP: THE ARMY, THE NAVY, THE AIR FORCE, THE MARINE CORPS, THE COAST GUARD, THE CIA, THE SECRET SERVICE, THE FBI, HOMELAND SECURITY, THE FDA, THE FAA, OTHER DEPARTMENTS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, THE SUPREME COURT, ALL THE FEDERAL COURTS, THE INTERSTATE AND U.S. HIGHWAY SYSTEMS, THE POST OFFICE, MEDICARE AND MEDICAID, SOCIAL SECURITY, IRS, PUBLIC EDUCATION, AND THE HUNDREDS OF OTHER BIG GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS THAT HELP MAKE AMERICA GREAT AND WHICH WE CANNOT DO WITHOUT. AS YOU CAN SEE, BIG GOVERNMENT IS GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY, NOT THE EVIL PORTRAYED BY IGNORANT PEOPLE.
the taliban citizens in Afghanistan are just doing what these yahoo republicans here espouse everyday for all states here in America…Bearing arms and protecting themselves in case the govt falls apart and a foreign invader tries to raid your homes!
Amendment # 2 : The right to bear arms.
We’re living in a HYPE-OCRACY……throw them all out in NOV.
MICHAEL MOORE...Now is the time for all Liberals to come to the aid of the Democratic Party. I am a Liberal with a big L. I did not get everything I wanted!
But I am not stupid enough to believe that electing more Republicans will help the Liberal Cause! We need to kill the myth of off year
elections by winning 20 more seats in the House and 4 more seats in the Senate. The Republicans have all joined the Tea Party.We can
beat hell out of the Republicans and dump them and the Tea Party into the Boston Harbor. Stop the negative talk and get to work! The
American people are sick of the Tea Party. It didn't have much tea in the bag in the beginning and much less now. The American people
will have their head screwed on straight come November. The Tea Republicans Party has had its run in the News Media and the polls.

right on the dot.
Iraq & Afghanistan disasters aside, these right wing nuts & their backers have their eyes now on the deserts of Iran as the place to send those of our boys & girls who remain here.
You can here the murmurs & preparations in the Congress.
Larry King and fellow bloggers, some of the Wikileaks nay sayers have openly accused Wikileaks of placing US Soldiers at further risk by the large and wide scale exposure from US and Afghani Military classified document postings.
I strongly disagree, US and NATO soldiers have lost their lives because US Commanders did not tell the helicopter pilots and their flight crews that Pakistani ISI had supplied the Taliban with shoulder fired heat seeking missiles. If they had, those pilots and flight crews would have changed their flight planes to minimize the risk which is much different than evading a RPG fired at their craft.
The largest public administrative 'official' critic of Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal's 'shake and bake' Afghanistan strategy (US Ambassador Richard Holbrooke) was betrayed by a high level leak and two distinct attempts by the Taliban were made on his life. One with a anti-aircraft missiles and automatic weapons ambush which failed to bring down the Osprey carrying him, another in a Afghanistan store he planned to enter and survey. The THREE suicide bombers in that store triggered their vests prematurely blowing themselves up mere moments before Ambassador Richard Holbrooke entered!
Ambassador Holbrooke was investigating the failure or success of McChrystal's strategy in Marjah when those attacks targeting him specifically occurred.
In the very least, it appears that Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal attempted to have Ambassador Richard Holbrooke murdered. That 'appearance' right or wrong was entirely unacceptable by President Obama's advisers and I feel the decision to create a exit strategy for Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal began at that time. The eyeopening series of interviews with McChrystal's staff with The Rolling Stone reporter was simply part of that exit strategy being played out.
The Wikileaked documents reveal that a large number of US and NATO soldiers were likely killed directly as a result of the US Commanders not telling the troops that several CIA Special Ops had either by accident or on purpose resulted in a huge number of dead Afghanistan women and children in several botched midnight raids.
Those child massacres directly resulted in a great many villagers and surviving family members picking up arms, planting IED's and likely killing as many American and NATO soldiers as they could find. It appears US Commanders in Afghanistan didn't inform the troops nor warn the troops those hyper-angry villagers were waiting for them to extract revenge.
While the US Pentagon propeller head, chair polishers didn't want to 'tarnish' America's image in the Middle East by not disclosing these civilian slaughters took place, IT directly placed American and NATO Soldiers lives at greater risk who walked into a hornet's nest of angry Afghanistan residents without being told and warned beforehand.
Google Earth reveals in some detail the weapons amassed from China and Russia that Iran will use when provoked. Check out the airports at Esfahan...Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, Shiraz, Kerman, Kermanshah, Mashad, Masjeh Soleyman, Qazvin, Kashan, Tabriz, plus the bases at Ahmadi Air Base..Bishe Kola Air Base..Bastak Air Base..Darrahi Air Base..Gorreh Air Base..Hamadan Air Base..Hesa Air Base..Shahid Air Base..Naja Air Base..Kashan Air Base..Nain Air Base..Omidiyeh Air Base..Qezel Qeshl Air Base..Soja Air Base..Doshan Tanneh Air Base..Vayqan Air Base...Don't be misled by the bunkers...they hide most of their arsenals...They also have of U.S. made F-14's..F-5's..F-4's..C-130's..Bell 214 A/B models..AH-1J Cobras and ground-air missile sites by the thousands. Pay particular attention to the Russian converted Il-76 AWACS they have on the ground in Shiraz.
Forgot the CH-47 Chinooks by the dozens....I have a rather unique story concerning them before I had to evacuate the country in '79. Some other time though...
After the embarrassing Transport Security Administration (TSA) leak where workers failed to properly redact documents related to screening procedures, three Republican lawmakers want to criminalize whistle blower sites that reposted the document. The question here is, if successful, could that set the stage for other documents such as the leaked ACTA documents? and would this effect the wiki leaks site?
I would like to see lobbying ended forever. Is that a possibility?
U.S. and its NATO ALLIES...STOP THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN...
Shame on the leakers for alerting the American Public and India that Pakistan has been funneling Billions of American taxpayer dollars from Bush-Cheney to the Pakistani ISI who used those free funds as outlined in reams of ISI and Afghanistan military documents to recruit, train and release suicide bombers against American and NATO troops.
Shame on the leakers for showing reams of documents detailing that American taxpayers were funding both sides of the War in Afghanistan. Place the leakers in prison, how dare America be shown those military intelligence reports. How dare pilots learn about heat seeking missiles fired at them, throw the leakers into prison. How dare American taxpayers learn their money is being used in the most depraved possible way to fund Taliban suicide bombers against American and NATO troops, throw the leaker in prison.
Oh Shame on the leakers for telling American troops that the Pakistani ISI had supplied the Taliban with Heat Seeking shoulder fired missiles so American and NATO pilots and their crews can update their flight plans to help protect them from that unknown threat that had been killing their fellow pilots because US Commanders didn't tell them.
To Obama no harm was done, in a way this will benefit Obama because his date certain for withdrawal regardless of conditions on the ground will appease the left and provide cover for an excuse to get out sooner
I hope Assange rots in jail and then hell. Manning should be tried for treason, and, if convicted, face the firing squad so he can rot in hell.
Looks like a case of collateral murder. But hey, it’s for a leftist cause, so it’s acceptable now
thanks for the info.
It sends shivers down my spine whenever I conjure up the specter of an invasion by our forces or an air raid on Iran. The consequences would be horrific.
Unfortunately those politicians not loyal to America & fully committed to its interests don't like to think so.
@Smith in Oregon
the corruption in the upper echelons of Pakistan is well known.What is confusion is , as Bergen said on CNN the other night, that on the one hand Pakistani army personnel are dying in scores at the hands of Talibans & on the other hand their intelligence is collaborating with the insurgents??
We are told that the number of Pakistani soldiers killed far exceeds those of US & Nato. So also Pakistani civilians murdered by Talibans.
Quite a conundrum. How can Pakistani military stand for this?
