I have 3 active duty service members in my immediate family, two of whom are on their umpteenth millionth redeploy to that sh*thole that is Afghanistan. They’re also Marines.

Quite. Let’s be clear: the real people put at risk by the Wikileaks revelations were those in charge of what’s happening over there, not the soldiers themselves. The risk those guys are in could hardly get higher.
