Shutting Down WikiLeak Before Leaking was Possible: Pentagon Refused to Stop WikiLeaks

You’ll hear in the video that the Pentagon could have shut-down the current leaks from WikiLeaks but decided not too for unknown reasons.


Hot Air muses why the Pentagon let this one slide avalanch into worldwide coverage:

…maybe, the Pentagon realized that taking down the Wikileaks site would achieve nothing since Assange would doubtless end up passing the stolen cables to newspapers anyway. If you think this incident is embarrassing for the U.S. now, imagine the humiliation involved in the Pentagon torpedoing Wikileaks and then seeing the documents turn up on page one of the Times. Sheer impotence.
