Playing devils advocate for a moment if there were unlawful acts committed by our military, present day. National security would cover it up in the interest of safety right but if the military is wrong during a mission why wait to blow 10 yrs. later?
Because waiting 10 years makes sure that all missions tied to that specific action are no longer in danger. Releasing information on one action can put many related missions in critical danger. All military activities are connected.
@hrymel, connected b/c the corruption lingers and festers into a operation built on lies and betrayal. Furthering gains of the government to benefit their personal agendas. Just b/c we put our people in harms doesn't make the mission right i.e. Iraq

So true Shona, it seems the media, perhaps government are trying to twist the horrific actions carried out in secrecy over the years. Furthermore with over 90% of people poor and a little less than 2% wealthy with power how else can we learn truth.

Point taken. Whistleblowers can't commit treason but the information of past wars and behind the curtain deals made into policy needs watching. We are owe that much understanding our tax dollars has funded most of theses wars and mysterious projects.

INDONO. I respectfully disagree Snowden put into light our constitution being dissolved. Knowledge is power! Doesn't make you wonder what the governments willing to do to its citizens? I do, so plz whistleblowers keep telling us what the media won't.
You are right. But sometimes, for the greater good, we are better off not knowing certain things. Especially when it comes to national security. Be clear. I am not condoning what our gov't has done. Just looking at both sides.
