SECRETS BEHIND IRAQ WAR LEAKED

the largest leak of secret information in U.S. history -- suggests that far more Iraqis died than previously acknowledged.
It says analysis by the independent organization Iraq Body Count suggests the logs contain 15,000 civilian deaths that have not been previously disclosed publicly. The reports detail 109,032 deaths in Iraq during the six years, including 66,081 identified as civilians.
the 391,831 secret Defense Department documents released Friday evening “the largest classified military leak in history.”
77,000 U.S. intelligence reports about the war in Afghanistan in July have been leaked, but these additional Afghan files were held back because of their sensitive content.

The Pentagon says these reports are similar to the 70,000 Afghan war documents released this summer, but this time on a much larger scale. Similar to the last time, Morrell said, locals who worked with the U.S. military are at risk of being killed after their names are made public. He said thousands of names could be revealed, and the Pentagon has started to reach out to just over 300 Iraqis it feels are at higher risk.

  5. I've been rather ambivalent about the leaks. I think, for the most part, they are just confirming things that have been in the rumor mill since these wars got started. Certainly they aren't winning us any PR battles in our "Win their hearts and minds" campaign, though.

  11. Kinda irresponsible to have this data just laying around I guess. Someone just came along and decided to leak it? Or were they hacked?
