Publish, and let them be damned

"Top military official: WikiLeaks founder may have 'blood' on his hands"

"Gates: Leaked documents don't reveal key intel, but risks remain"  The Pentagon lies were so successful they were probably interfering with recruiting new informants, thus the need for the retraction of the original lie.

"Pentagon demands WikiLeaks return all leaked documents" (!)

"How propaganda is disseminated: WikiLeaks Edition"  The original lie serves its purpose in the news cycle, and can then be retracted or ignored.

"Fearing Increased Wikileaks 'Credibility', Pentagon Asks Media Not to Use Leaked War Files"  The joke is that WikiLeaks already has far, far, far more credibility than any mainstream American news outlet.
