Reporters Without Borders: Open Letter to Wikileaks Founder

Apparently Reporters Without Borders felt the leaking of so-called murder of Reuter reporters/civilians titled "Collateral Damage" was OK. Leaking names of Afghan civilians who are helping us is not OK

I certainly hope they would read one of several Jawa article's debunking the phony Collateral Damage video. Reuter reporters were with the insurgents hoping to snap images of death/dying, US military death/dying. That's their modus operandi.

Do some research Reporters without Borders.

Open letter to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange: ‘‘A bad precedent for the Internet’s future’’

Dear Mr. Assange,

Reporters Without Borders, an international press freedom organisation, regrets the incredible irresponsibility you showed when posting your article “Afghan War Diary 2004 - 2010” on the Wikileaks website on 25 July together with 92,000 leaked documents disclosing the names of Afghans who have provided information to the international military coalition that has been in Afghanistan since 2001.

Wikileaks has in the past played a useful role by making information available to the US and international public that exposed serious violations of human rights and civil liberties which the Bush administration committed in the name of its war against terror. Last April’s publication of a video of the killing of two employees of the Reuters news agency and other civilians by US military personnel in Baghdad in July 2007 was clearly in the public interest and we supported this initiative. It was a response to the Obama administration’s U-turn on implementation of the Freedom of Information Act. The White House broke its word in May 2009, when it defied a court order and refused to release photos of the mistreatment of detainees in Afghanistan and Iraq.

But revealing the identity of hundreds of people who collaborated with the coalition in Afghanistan is highly dangerous. It would not be hard for the Taliban and other armed groups to use these documents to draw up a list of people for targeting in deadly revenge attacks.[More]

Assange is a anti-war assmaggot, doesn't give a shite who is harmed. He is enjoying his role as one of the biggest assh**les on earth. Traitor Spc Manning is sharing this fame with him.
