Wikileaks.org Releases Thousands of Afghan War Secret Documents ‘That Tell Real Story of War’
July 26, 2010
(Chattahbox) – On Sunday, the New York Times made public the six-year diary of an American-led force in Afghanistan. This archive, known as WikiLeaks, was also given to two other major newspapers: The Guardian in England and German newspaper Der Spiegel.
The leaks are being blamed on Private Manning, who supposedly admitted to leaking videos and information regarding other classified events. Manning was arrested, and investigators think he used a loophole in the defense department’s security policies to put the information on CD’s over the course of six months.
WikiLeaks’ servers are based in several different countries, many of which (such as Sweden) offer better protection to the organization. The U.S. Government is pretty disgruntled over the information being made public, but they were quick to point out that the official reports on the war in Afghanistan don’t directly contradict the WikiLeaks records.
