That was the nature of the database. It was low level informational stuff. Databases are highly structured and only certain types of information goes into each field. He was intimately familiar with these databases.

Manning could have released more specific more highly classified information, but didn't. He was careful about what he was doing. The cables were a bit more embarrassing but still low level cables for the most part. Those could stifle communications a bit. But there was information in there that should shock and call to action all of us....if people would actually report it and read it. Biggest problem is we do so much bad stuff it is hard to know where to start.

Information overload.
