Look at it this way, then: we're playing a game of hockey, right? My team has come up with a great plan to score a goal against your team. Then suddenly, one of my players tells a spectator about the plan. That spectator then broadcasts the plan to everyone, including your team. We don't score the goal, because you knew what our plan was.
In the real world, this game of hockey is representative of war. People, soldiers and civilians alike, are dying because of the classified documents being released on this website.
