    WikiLeaks Data Seem to Show Pakistan Helped Attack American Troops

    Perhaps the single most damming collection of data in a massive trove of secret documents from Afghanistan released by the website WikiLeaks is some 180 files that seem to show Pakistan's premiere intelligence service, the ISI, helping the Afghan insurgency attack American troops.
    The United States provides more than a billion dollars to Pakistan each year for help in fighting terrorism, but the papers seem to link the ISI with major Afghan insurgent commanders; claim its representatives meet directly with the Taliban; accuse the agency of training suicide bombers; and indicts Pakistani intelligence officials on hatching up sensational ways to assassinate Afghan president Hamid Karzai and even poison the beer drunk by Americans in Afghanistan.

    WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange said the documents are "legitimate," but he added that it is important not to take their contents at face value.

    "We publish CIA reports all the time that are legitimate CIA reports. That doesn't mean the CIA is telling the truth," he said.
    If the reports are true, there are some very serious allegations here. Remember when Bush told Pakistan after 9/11: "Either you're with us or against us."

    If the allegations in these leaks were true it would bring an entire new light to Pakistan's involvement in Afghanistan.

    If they are not true, then what is the motive behind the leaks? What is the motive for trying to paint Pakistan as an enemy of the United States? Gulf of Tonkin anyone?

    Hardly a bind blowing OMFGS moment if you ask me. We have suspected this since forever, but it has not been politically correct to say it in Pakistan's face.

    Same for the possible war crimes committed by NATO troops.

    What is much more interesting is the revelation that US aircraft have been shot down with heat seeker rockets.

    Oh and I almost forgot the pictures of the clear war crime by a US Apache crew... now that is disgusting. Funny how we have not heard they have been charged with war crimes..

    The people responsible for Wikileaks need to be arrested, and their website shut down permanently.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This shouldn't be surprising at all. That practice was commonplace during the Soviet experience.

    We literally gave them the weapons to do it.

    The website is based in Sweden, the founder of wikileaks is not American.

    Well the difference is that the US gave the Afghans those rockets... who are they getting them from now... that is a very good question.

    No, releasing classified data isn't dangerous at all to national security...

    No...

    (that's sarcasm for those of you in Rio Linda)

    And to Answer PeteEU...
    IT'S NOT THE RIGHT OR PLACE OF THE ****BAG THAT OWNS Wikileaks TO RELEASE INFORMATION. Those that provided the data, should be tried for Treason, and then shot.
