Wikileaks Docudump

The New York Post reports that Wikileaks and Julian Assange have made good on their threat to release thousands of potentially damaging secret military documents about the war in Afghanistan. 76,000 or so, to be more precise. 15,000 more are being held in reserve for future release, although it is suspected that this is actually being done at the request of White House officials, who were concerned that information in certain documents might endanger the lives of the troops.

The once-secret reports reveal the truth behind thousands of incidents where the number of civilian casualties and the circumstances of their deaths have been misrepresented in the official public reports. They also reveal what journalists have already known for a long time: that the ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence service, has been directly aiding the Taliban whilst simultaneously receiving billions of dollars of payoffs from the US for being our “allies” in the region. Former Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning has been detained in Baghdad on suspicion that he is the source of the leaked documents. The Department of Defense says it will take weeks to assess the potential damage of the exposure.
