The American left and the WikiLeaks documents

The American left and the WikiLeaks documents By David Walsh 31 July 2010 The release by WikiLeaks of 92,000 secret documents has helped expose the brutal, neo-colonial character of the US-led war in Afghanistan. The documents detail US military atrocities against the Afghan population, reveal the scope of the opposition to the foreign occupation, and expose the stooge regime in Kabul for what it is, a coalition of big business interests, drug lords and sadistic killers... The US media has worked hand in glove with the White House and Pentagon to conceal the horrific character of the conflict. Despite that, the population defeated the Republicans in two elections, 2006 and 2008, in part because of opposition to and suspicion about what the US military was up to in Iraq and Afghanistan. Brought to power promising "change," the Obama administration has continued and escalated the military intervention.

Witness says Army offered him cash to 'infiltrate' WikiLeaks 01 Aug 2010 Before the online site WikiLeaks published a trove of classified documents about the Afghanistan war, government investigators interviewed Boston-area acquaintances of a military analyst charged with providing other documents to the site in an effort to prevent additional leaks, according to one person interviewed in the probe.
