The document urges such strikes, but is amazingly frank about the drawbacks. it says: Potential negative effects of HVT ope rations include increasing the level of insurgent support, causing a government to neglect other aspects of its counterinsurgency strategy, altering in surgent strategy or organization in ways that favor the insurgents, strengthening an armed group s bond with the population, radicalizing an insurgent group s remaining leaders, creating a vacuum into which more radical groups can enter, and escalating or deescalating a conflict in ways that favor the insurgents.

Julian Assange: Google’s Basic Business Model “Same as the NSA’s”

That phrase, evil empire, was introduced by Reagan in the 1980s to describe the Soviet empire. But of course encoded within that is that the other empire is not an evil empire. The U.S. empire is a "don't be evil" empire. And that phrase of "don't be evil" was adopted by Google and promoted by Google in terms of how it was going to do things.

Chelsea Manning: “Islamic State Cannot Be Defeated by Bombs and Bullets”

I believe that Isis is fueled precisely by the operational and tactical successes of European and American military force that would be - and have been - used to defeat them. I believe that Isis strategically feeds off the mistakes and vulnerabilities of the very democratic western states they decry. The Islamic State s center of gravity is, in many ways, the United States, the United Kingdom and those aligned with them in the region Attacking Isis directly, by air strikes or special operations forces, is a very tempting option available to policymakers, with immediate (but not always good) results. Unfortunately, when the west fights fire with fire, we feed into a cycle of outrage, recruitment, organizing and even more fighting that goes back decades.
