On Friday, October 22nd, WikiLeaks, an organization that journalists helped make and publish documents that the public what have not been able to seen, recently leaked nearly 400,000 Iraq War documents, the biggest classified military leak in history according to WikiLeaks.
Also according to WikiLeaks, each document is a “SIGACT” or Significant Action in the war as told by soldiers in the United States Army.
According to spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson for WikiLeaks, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and other media outlets helped release these documents that they had access to.
Do you think it was a good idea for these journalists to leak this information about the Iraq war? Is it important enough for the public to really know what is going on in this war or was it a bad idea to release this information because enemy forces could read them too and learn our strategies?
