War is the pornography of violence. It has a dark beauty, filled with the monstrous and the grotesque.

Just heard a Fox News report that Wikileaks is preparing to or is posturing to release the password for the insurance file located on their website.
......Access to Wikileaks has been banned across the entire U.S. Military in what seems to be a bid to stop any further information being leaked.
It doesn’t look like much attention is being paid to the ban as the e-mail announcing the action has been leaked to the Air Warriors forum. It included the following:
Yesterday, the media released information regarding a large number of documents containing U.S. national security information posted on a publicly available website called WikiLeaks. I understand it was first reported in the New York Times yesterday at www.nytimes.com... The White House then issued a statement available at www.whitehouse.gov...…ones-wikileaks. Personnel are reminded not to confirm nor deny information contained on the website. In addition, personnel should not access the WikiLeaks website on government owned systems, in order to avoid a proliferation of potential electronic spillages (ES).
Further requests and reminders have been issued such as this one sent to personnel in the Navy:
There has been rumor that the information is no longer classified since it resides in the public domain. This is NOT true.
and this one by the Marine Corps:
USMC Personnel (Marines/Civilians/Contractors) are hereby cautioned and directed to NOT access the WIKILEAKS website from a personally owned, publically owned or US Government computer system.
In addition, and in what can only be seen as a futile request, the Pentagon Spokesman Geoff Morrell gave a briefing asking that Wikileaks return all documents and remove them from their site
