Why, WikiLeaks?


His name is Julian Assange and his group is WikiLeaks. The first time I ever heard of this group was when it published a video shot from the cockpit of an Apache helicopter, showing a group of men being gunned down in Baghdad by American airmen. The most disturbing part of this awful video was when the gunners were heard laughing and referring to the men as “dead bastards.”

Now, this group has released tens of thousands of classified U.S. military reports on Afghanistan. My only question here is why? What does this group hope to gain? Is their purpose altruistic? Are they bringing us information to enlighten, to horrify or to vilify the government and/or the military? I guess only time will tell.

Meanwhile these photos are extremely interesting:
