Wikileaks Releases Shocking mIRC Transcripts From Afghanistan G-Had October 26, 2012 News 25 Comments Follow Duffel Blog: LONDON, U.K. – The website Wikileaks today released more than 35,000 pages of mIRC transcripts from the United States and other NATO forces in Operation Enduring Freedom. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange praised the release as the most damning indictment of the United States ever leaked to the press. “This latest release, more than all the others, exposes the lies and hypocrisies of the United States,” Assange told reporters. “And it’s all thanks to Bradley Man– I mean, my network of secret informants.” mIRC is an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client, created in 1995, and operated by the US military as its primary online communications program. The transcripts were taken from various Combat Operations Centers (COC) at the battalion, regimental, and division level. Some of the logs reveal serious maturity issues with senior military figures. For example, this particular exchange was taken during Operation Khanjar and is between the COC from the 1st Battalion 5th Marines and their headquarters at Camp Dwyer: _1_5_S3_WO: Yeah, I’m looking for First Sergeant Hunt. I think his first name is Mike. _3rd_Reg_SWO: Hang on, I’ll check. No one here has seen Mike Hunt. _1_5_S3_WO: How about Gunnery Sergeant Jass? I think his first name is Hugh. Or Private Meehoph, first name Jack. Other mIRC logs reveal a strange detachment between combat operations centers and units in contact with the enemy. _2_7_Fox_WO: Stand by for TIC [Troops in Contact] report. Fox 2-3 is reporting taking heavy small arms fire. _2_7_SWO: Is that you Green? Man I am so fucking bored right now. _2_7_Fox_WO: WTF? We have a TIC! Get the AirO and Fires spun up. _2_7_SWO: Can you guys wait until the PX Truck leaves? _3_5_WO: Break break break. Stand by MEDEVAC. _RCT7_SWO: Rgr _3_5_WO: Line 1: 50S MC 08724 78122 _RCT7_SWO: WTF? Where is that even at? Who is this? _3_5_WO: This is E2W. We’re doing Mojave Viper and my SSgt told me to run some drills so I wanted to see if this was the right format. Some mIRC logs reveal units that had little grasp of proper protocol. CLB_3_S3: Miss, B5 CLB_3_S1: Miss, E6 CLB_3_S3: Miss, A3 CLB_3_S1: Miss, E2 CLB_3_S3: Hit. Damn, you sank my battleship. II_MEB_SWO: You know we’re reading everything you two dickheads are typing, right? As casualties mounted during the Surge, discipline among some units slowly started to crack. Apache X-RAy: T-Hawk X-Ray, we’re observing 3 IED emplacers ATT, moving to strike. T-Hawk X-RAy: Send up the SALTA Apache: NM, fuckers just blew themselves up. T-Hawk: Cool. How’s the chow today? _VMU1_: Good morning devil dog. I’ll be your controller today? _1_3_S2: Are you a female? _VMU1_: Uh, yes. _1_3_S2: I would totally fuck you six ways from sundown right now, first I would start licking y– _VMU1_: WTF? Are you fucking serious? _1_3_S2: Sorry, things have been so tense over here. I just wish people would stop dying so we can get off RiverCity and I can get back to playing MafiaWars on Facebook. The problem is not just limited to the United States. Wikileaks also released several transcripts from the Combined Enterprise Regional Information Exchange (CENTRIX), the secret network used by all NATO countries in Afghanistan, showing how language difficulties were also hampering coalition operations. Here’s an exchange between a US officer and his Australian counterpart: LKG_LNO: “Hey, can you guys spare any infantry units for our upcoming operations?” JTF_633: “How many diggers do you need?” LKG_LNO: “WTF? You can’t say shit like that. This is an official network.” JTF_633: “What? That’s what we call our infantry: diggers.” LKG_LNO: “Oh, sorry. But yeah, can you spare any?” JTF_633: “OK, but make sure you bring plenty of fried chicken and watermelon, cause our diggers really love that.” U.S. officials have refused to comment on the reports. Wikileaks is already planning an additional release for tomorrow, which Assange promises will focus exclusively on the popular Blue Force Tracker acronym STFU, which Assange says does not actually stand for “Sir, Thanks For the Update”.

Christopher Dowling says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM As someone with CoC experience… this is hilarious. James Anders says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Assange obviously being a coward has no idea that men in combat have a sense of humor. Dark humor and pretending to not care has been around forever. Oh wait, the PC police are here to save the American combat veteran from insensitive remarks. Rob Masi says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Hilarious Jorge Soto says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Bradly Manning sould have been executed for treason along time ago!!! Cory Nettnin says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Just looked at the photo again. Some jackass actually did take a picture in a classified area. The more articles I read, the less sure I am that Duffle Blog is still doing satire. Josh Noble says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Oh god, one of the funniest I have seen in a while here! “Thank you, Sir, for the Update” is going to be spread around my work center now. I have to see how far I can take it. Meanwhile: Julian Asshat would probably not understand this. He is a coward and a coprophage. Irma Belga says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM hi po Warren Martin Le Pine says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Ya not good. But that’s the way the video/gamer generation fights wars. The same way they games at home. Doc Bailey says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM You haven’t lived till you’ve played Risk over the course of three FOBs! Justin Bell says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Let’s be honest, these guys are having fun with it WHILE executing national priorities. This just works as free advetising for the military. Cunning Linguists Inc. says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM This is fantastic. By far your best work in a long time. Apache X-RAy: T-Hawk X-Ray, we’re observing 3 IED emplacers ATT, moving to strike. T-Hawk X-RAy: Send up the SALTA. Apache: NM, fuckers just blew themselves up. T-Hawk: Cool. How’s the chow today? Been there, done that. Ray Spitz says: February 26, 2014 at 12:39 AM Somehow I think the chatter between soldiers would appall most pant-waisted types. Hylander says: October 29, 2012 at 4:32 AM The two playing Battleship should have opened a Whisper Box. Chumpzilla says: October 28, 2012 at 1:15 AM gtg? defensor fortissimo says: October 27, 2012 at 8:55 AM Word to all my diggers, mate Jim says: October 26, 2012 at 11:43 PM I have to be “that guy.” As a guy who has deployed CENTRIXS all over Asia for the last 4 years, I can confirm it is Combined Enterprise Regional Information Exchange System (CENTRIXS). Army Wife (P) says: October 26, 2012 at 11:00 PM As a gal that reads MiRC everyday, I can confirm this. leftoftheboom says: October 26, 2012 at 8:04 PM Did you all hear about the state department fool in Kalsu that sent the lamest email asking for a date? He sent it on SIPR and it went from there. State had to get the idiot out of Iraq. Classified says: October 26, 2012 at 12:13 PM haha sounds about right… where was the satire?
