Everyone knows about how Bob Woodward has been told he would regret going against the administration by some unknown member of that administration.

The Lack of a Need for a Debate, Since We Already Had One
This article tells about how army private Bradley Manning said he leaked data to Wikileaks because he wanted to start a public debate.

Did you really think you could get them going again, in the face of the massive amounts of loyalty that the media have for our president? Or did you naively think that somehow Obama would be on your side against the “evil” Republicans, now that he's responsible for those wars? Either way, it looks like you got yourself into trouble for nothing.
