It's called " profiteering. "

the guys in charge make as much money off whatever is the hay of the day as they can.

Guardian were one of the papers to analyse some of it. It's not anything particularly surprising really.

They got access (and keep getting access) to loads of documents, wikileaks likes leaking shit especially government/war stuff, that's about it really

That's the whole point of the website

Wikileaks doesn't dig up the dirt themselves, they rely on whistle-blowers. The point of Wikileaks is to give whistle-blowers a secure outlet.

I'm just saying don't blame wikileaks for the lack of diversity.

I say no slant in terms of the leak itself without any outside media analysing it. Just the documents themselves with no extra input. They probably do have a bias towards leaking things about the government and war. Or it could be that's just their easiest source for leaks.

I don't know the website nor have I ever really visited it, it's just always on the news. I'm sure they have more leaks outside of the US government and the wars

Not that it really matters....they're some underground non-profit website that just likes leaking shit and probably don't give a shit what bias people think they have.

Wow, get some reading comprehension. Wikileaks doesn't look into anything. Wikileaks provides a place where third party whistle-blowers can leak information relatively safely.

That's what I would think, until you see the white house getting all angry... clearest tell tale sign yet that this was legit, surely. Unless they're bluffing in order to hide the real secrets, them wiley negroes are known to be of such character

If it helps it's not just taking the piss out of coalition forces, it also talks about Pakistan's ISI helping the Taliban, and some shit about Iran too

I hope the guy that leaked all the documents gets strung up.

This, TBH. Actually, I think that would be too good for the person. Ought to just drop them out in the middle of the afghan desert with a canteen of water and nothing else and leave them there.

Should send him back to his unit. I don't think anything we can think up would compare to the treatment he would receive from them.

Watergate scandal was backed up with (basically) only anonymous sources and it still seemed to turn 'alright'.

It's just business. As long as US keeps paying Pakistan, Pakistan will do everything they can to keep that money pouring in. And for some reason I don't quite believe US is going to stop paying Pakistan any time soon. There are people profiting of this situation on both sides. Only people suffering from this situation are US soldiers, US civilians, Afghani civilians and Pakistani civilians.

Who do we beleive here? Remember it's not Wikileaks, rather people that actually made the documents which was leaked by Wikileaks. For example.

According to an incident report filed by the U.S. military unit, 205TH RCAG (Regional Corps Advisory Group), four Canadian soldiers were killed and seven others and an interpreter were wounded on Sept. 3, 2006, when a jet dropped a bomb on a building they occupied during the second day of Operation MEDUSA.

The Canadian military reported at the time that the four soldiers died in battles with Taliban forces.

Oh shit that website is awesome, I just copy/pasted one paragraph and they automatically put that link in.

Anyone with the know-how to say how reliable these US military reports are anyway? I've read that there can be alot of bullshit in them, these are mainly lower level documents and stuff, but they wouldn't write something like that for no reason. Seems more like a cover up
