    Nora-you miss the point when you ask "who are you" to do this.International law makes clear that "just following orders" is not an excuse. Your comment indicates that good soldiers just follow orders. Full Stop. I lost a six-year-old cousin to the gas chambers at Auschwitz when good soldiers did as they were told.So I understand the price of just following orders. It appears she Anat Kam acted thoughtfully. She could have leaked to a foreign newspaper (like Va'anunu did) which would have avoided the military censor and really harmed security. This is no dummy and no usurper. She cares deeply about Eretz Yisrael. Unlike the soldiers who refuse orders outright to remove illegal settlers, she acted in support of democracy and rule of law. Indeed, if the classification was done to cover up crimes, then those who so classified the docs are guilty of conspiracy and obstruction.She apparently blew the whistle when those to whom one normally reports crimes misused power to cover-up.
