The Wikileaks Afghanistan War Logs

In one of the biggest leaks in US military history, 90,000 records of incidents and intelligence reports about the war in Afghanistan obtained by the whistleblowers’ website Wikileaks were made available to the Guardian, the New York Times and the German weekly Der Spiegel. The files reveal hundreds of civilians killed by coalition troops, ‘friendly fire’ deaths and shadowy special forces, painting, as the Guardian puts it, “a devastating portrait of the failing war in Afghanistan”.

Over the fold: Julian Assange on the war logs and war log links.

A huge cache of secret US military files today provides a devastating portrait of the failing war in Afghanistan, revealing how coalition forces have killed hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents-

  1. Leslie H. Gelb wrote in his opinion column in The Daily Beast: What does the secret documents released by Wikileaks tell us about U.S. politics to Afghanistan and Pakistan? You have to say immediately that tells us nothing important that did not already know. There has been “informed” of years stories detailing how the Pakistani military intelligence has been providing weapons, money and intelligence to the Afghan Taliban, which in turn have been killing American soldiers.

  2. Serious ? With all names, definitions of particular types of machinery etc. crossed out? Is it just me, or does it seem censored?
