Submission + - Wikileaks releases their cache of US Iraq War Docs-> 3 3

Caelesto writes: Today around 21:00 GMT, Wikileaks declared an end to their media embargo of over 400,000 Iraq War documents after Al Jazeera released their story 30 minutes ahead of schedule. These documents, which have been kept under wraps by Wikileaks for months, may reveal tortures and murders ignored by coalition forces during the fighting and occupation in Iraq. The pentagon maintained that releasing these documents represented a danger to US troops, but already dozens of news outlets are scrambling to report on what could be a devastating blow to the US Armed Force's already tattered image.

Absolutely correct. The only thing that's changed is that MS redirected auto.search.msn.com, search.msn.com, and all of live.com to bing.com. So the old MSN Live Search domain not found page (Which should be familiar to anyone who ever misspelled 'getfirefox.com' shortly after installing a new windows system) now says Bing.com instead. Everybody panic!
