Anyway, what made this week so awesome? Well, how about Julian Assange reneging on his promise to release over 400,000 classified documents from the Iraq War? According to Assange, it has nothing to do with a lack of funding for Wikileaks, or a power struggle among Wikileaks' leadership. No, according to Assange, the truth is far worse: it's because Wired.com is filled with nothing but tabloid journalists. (That's right, Ackerman and Shachtman.)
Update: A few minutes after I posted this, Captain Hyphen of Kings of War alerted me to the fact that The Guardian, the New York Times and Der Speigel have just posted exclusive coverage of the Iraq War Logs.
We also saw a number of incredible developments in defense technology. Should a biological hazard occur, ladies are advised to remove their bras. (Need help? Call me.) We also saw the blogosphere's reaction to Boyd-fest 2010. Though, to be fair, the American strategist John Boyd is to strategy what Vanilla Ice is to rap music.
In other news, both Tom Brokaw (at the New York Times) and Mother Jones remind us that we're still at war; military medics save lives (though the FaST Surgeon could tell you that); and Britain is giving up on its naval aspirations, going so far as to field a carrier with no aircraft (which means the carrier gap is getting even wider...in America's favor).
I should also mention that General Petraeus is doing something in Afghanistan; I'm not sure what, but by God, he's doing something.
Lastly, Twitter pals Diana Wueger and Lauren Jenkins have been sharing a panda hat. Trust me when I say that this is the biggest news in the defense/foreign policy community.
