Nearly 400,000 documents have been released by the online self-proclaimed whistle-blower site WikiLeaks. The Wikileaks data raises new concerns and military condemnation, yet WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claims there are 15,000 more secret Afghan war documents yet to be made public. Read more about it below and see his photo and a video of Assange walking out of a CNN interview when questioned about his pending rape case.
WikiLeaks has done it again, releasing 400,000 document, classified military documents, for the public to peruse. Naturally, this document dump has garnered military condemnation from the Pentagon and raises new concerns about the Iraq war in general.
The documents allegedly reveal prisoner abuse by U.S. Troops reminiscent of the Abu Ghraib incident, you know, sophomoric hi-jinks similar to what one might find in a fraternity house. It also alleges rape and murder by Iraqi police and soldiers. The documents also suggest that helicopter’s crew fired upon insurgents after they attempted to surrender.
They also allege that Iraqi civilian deaths have been greatly under-reported. In fact, they reveal that the George Soros funded The Lancet studies grossly OVER-stated the civilian deaths in the Iraq war. It seems to be the Left contradicting itself in the propaganda arena. Of course, the main stream media has neglected to report that.
Also revealed in the documents is the American hikers held in Iran were captured in Iraq rather than Iran and that there were, indeed, WMDs in Iraq.
Of course, as with everything that comes from the left (and George Soros), there’s more to the story of the WikiLeaks document dump.
Here’s some more reading from around the internet.

So after some reading it seems that the WikiLeaks data raises new concerns … for the Left as the 400,000 documents about the Iraq and Afghan Wars contradict previous studies they have done, especially when it comes to the numbers of civilian deaths (and WMDs in Iraq). If only the main stream media would report the truth.
