Wikileaks And The Afghanistan War Logs

Afghanistan WarAll hail Wikileaks and the Internet for giving us a glimpse of what’s really happening in the can’t-win war. The Guardian, the New York Times and Der Spiegel have published a huge cache of secret military files from the whistleblowing website Wikileaks, detailing the war in Afghanistan. Here’s a summary from the Guardian of what is still a breaking story, so expect more to come:

• The whistleblowing website Wikileaks has today published more than 90,000 secret US military files on the war in Afghanistan.

• Key disclosures relate to the relationship of the Pakistani intelligence service with the Taliban and how the US covered up evidence that the Taliban have acquired deadly surface-to-air missiles.

• The White House said Wikileaks was “irresponsible” for publishing the leaked documents, accusing the website of putting the lives of troops in danger…

    The operation is endangered by revealing to the world what a clusterfuck it is!

    At least maybe this will force the US to stop giving billions of dollars to the Pakistanis when they are actively working against the interests of EVERYONE in the region.

    the white house is accusing wikileaks of putting the soldiers' lives at risk?
    what a joke.
    politicians on both sides of the aisle seem to actively work to put out soldiers lives at risk.
    then when these soldiers return home, their VA care is another joke.

      It's like fundamentalist Christians preserving the sanctity of life by agreeing to bomb other countries…

      • Polymorpheous

        obama did his part by escalating a war while accepting the noble peace prize.
        clinton was testifying in the lewinski scandal when he bombed yugoslavia into the stone age.

        as i said, BOTH SIDES of the aisle are guilty of putting our soldiers lives at risk.

    This is like the Pentagon Papers Redux. The details of any war are not pretty.

    How reliable are all these files? Obviously bad stuff is gonna happen when you arm young men, send them to a completely foreign enviroment, where the enemy will dress as civillians and are more than happy to sacrifice themselves. I don't think it could make it much more dangerous seeing as most people in Afganistan know about these kinds of things anyway. It can't be hard work being an Al-qa'ida recruitment officer in Afganistan.
    Now aid to pakistan is at threat because of these leaks, thats probably going to make it more dangerous than the news that soldiers have been killing civillians.

    WIkileaks and israrel work together to disinform Western World about moslims and danger to pursue irsrael´s plan to rob The Iran Drinkingwater Supplys and the Eufraat Region !

    Okee , i also commented at guardian.co.uk
    See below , they removed my comment !

    They did that before , in a case where i was warning the world about very severe and massive crimes of the jew communities against children and toddlers !

    So do not mistake that piece of paper for a newspaper , but as terroristcell of the israeli interests , and those are usually not that legal and democratic !

    96% of World media is in hands of israel already , for terror , disquise , desinformation , hate seedings , warmongerings , to keep us from telling any thing , and manipulation purposes !
