Pentagon braces for huge WikiLeaks dump on Iraq war
WASHINGTON The Pentagon said on Sunday it had a 120-member team prepared to review a massive leak of as many as 500,000 Iraq war documents, which are expected to be released by the WikiLeaks website sometime this month.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan told Reuters the timing of the leak remained unclear but the Defense Department was ready for a document dump as early as Monday or Tuesday, a possibility raised in previous WikiLeaks statements.

Maybe it's just me, but this came across like a promotion to get more people over to Wikileaks in time to grab the next release of documents. If the Pentagon was really concerned, wouldn't they be trying to avoid having more visitors downloading those documents rather than making a public announcement saying the documents were going to be released. Sounds a bit odd to me.

Just an observation.

I agree. The media is mostly an outlet for gov propaganda.
Look who sponsors that place, that should be enough to convince anyone of sound mind that they are no good.
