Since this is the latest open Wikileaks thread, it seems appropriate to post here, for the benefit of all the "blood on their hands" comments in prior threads:

Mea Culpa
Here goes: I was wrong. Wikileaks, based on the evidence that the DoD has presented, did its level best to work with the DoD to redact any names that might harm innocent Afghans. The Pentagon not only lied about it, but has even refused to cooperate going forward ... The blood, if there is to be any, is on the Pentagon's hands. It's that simple.
Lesson: obvious.
