Sunday, July 26 5pm EST.


WikiLeaks today released over 75,000 secret US military reports covering the war in Afghanistan.
The Afghan War Diary an extraordinary secret compendium of over 91,000 reports covering the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2010. The reports describe the majority of lethal military actions involving the United States military. They include the number of persons internally stated to be killed, wounded, or detained during each action, together with the precise geographical location of each event, and the military units involved and major weapon systems used.
The Afghan War Diary is the most significant archive about the reality of war to have ever been released during the course of a war. The deaths of tens of thousands is normally only a statistic but the archive reveals the locations and the key events behind each most of these deaths. We hope its release will lead to a comprehensive understanding of the war in Afghanistan and provide the raw ingredients necessary to change its course.
Most entries have been written by soldiers and intelligence officers listening to reports radioed in from front line deployments. However the reports also contain related information from Marines intelligence, US Embassies, and reports about corruption and development activity across Afghanistan.
Each report consists of the time and precise geographic location of an event that the US Army considers significant. It includes several additional standardized fields: The broad type of the event (combat, non-combat, propaganda, etc.); the category of the event as classified by US Forces, how many were detained, wounded, and killed from civilian, allied, host nation, and enemy forces; the name of the reporting unit and a number of other fields, the most significant of which is the summary - an English language description of the events that are covered in the report.
The Diary is available on the web and can be viewed in chronological order and by by over 100 categories assigned by the US Forces such as: "escalation of force", "friendly-fire", "development meeting", etc. The reports can also be viewed by our "severity" measure-the total number of people killed, injured or detained. All incidents have been placed onto a map of Afghanistan and can be viewed on Google Earth limited to a particular window of time or place. In this way the unfolding of the last six years of war may be seen.
The material shows that cover-ups start on the ground. When reporting their own activities US Units are inclined to classify civilian kills as insurgent kills, downplay the number of people killed or otherwise make excuses for themselves. The reports, when made about other US Military units are more likely to be truthful, but still down play criticism. Conversely, when reporting on the actions of non-US ISAF forces the reports tend to be frank or critical and when reporting on the Taliban or other rebel groups, bad behavior is described in comprehensive detail. The behavior of the Afghan Army and Afghan authorities are also frequently described.
The reports come from US Army with the exception most Special Forces activities. The reports do not generally cover top-secret operations or European and other ISAF Forces operations. However when a combined operation involving regular Army units occurs, details of Army partners are often revealed. For example a number of bloody operations carried out by Task Force 373, a secret US Special Forces assassination unit, are exposed in the Diary -- including a raid that lead to the death of seven children.
This archive shows the vast range of small tragedies that are almost never reported by the press but which account for the overwhelming majority of deaths and injuries.
We have delayed the release of some 15,000 reports from total archive as part of a harm minimization process demanded by our source. After further review, these reports will be released, with occasional redactions, and eventually, in full, as the security situation in Afghanistan permits.

Ahmed Quraishi Instead of defending Pakistan and ISI, Husain Haqqani defends Zardari govt!

CIA has leaked documents once again to demonize Pakistan and ISI. No evidence just reports written by its junior officers between 2004-09. When Husain Haqqani was asked about it, he told NYT these documents "do not reflect the current on-ground realities."

Translation of Mr. Haqqani's latest statement: ISI might have been involved in terror before but not now under his govt, the 'current on-ground realities' being the presence of such American stooges as Mr. Haqqani and Mr. Zardari.

Lots of reports of attacks on innocent civilians. Some documents of revenge attacks, drone attacks on weddings etc.

The west has really stooped to a new low here. They are carrying out operations that are just as bad as terrorist attacks. The lines have blurred between the good and the bad.

This is absolute garbage, Pakistan has shed more blood for war on terror than any other country.

We have been coherced into waging war against our own muslim people by Kafirs.

Then they spew lies and filth to make us look bad.

This is just one big conspiracy by the zionist, BhaRATis and their supporters.

When the Ummah is united you will tremble as we take the whole world for the truth of Islam.
 
wikileaks exposes pakistani army , ISI and Taliban nexus. This was a long known truth. Wikileaks only re-confirms it.

Pakistani generals led by Kayani are a bunch of megalomaniacs.

All of the Indians are jumping, I am not surprised they won't let any change go away of defaming Pakistan and ISI and forget about their RAW agents role in killing Pakistanis SUMJHOTA EXPRESS terrorist attacks and attacks being carried out everyday in Pakistan killing so many, all sponsored, funded and equipped by RAW.

This source of information released in these reports is from afghan, indian, mosad and rogue elements in CIA who are trying to hide their afghan war failures, hate Pakistan and blaming it on ISI, anything that goes anywhere in world it's nowadays a trend to hide your incompetency and blame it on Pakistan. We have suffered enough and WE SHOULD CALL OUR CO-OPERATION OFF AND GIVE THIS REPORT AS AN EXCUSE, WE ARE NOT BEING OBLIGED ANYWAY SO WHAT'S THE POINT, THOUSANDS OF PAKISTANIS HAVE DIED AND OUR ECONOMY SUFFERING.

Wikileaks Docs Target Pakistan
Posted By admin On July 26, 2010 @ 3:47 pm In Featured Stories | 11 Comments
Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
July 26, 2010
Not long after Wikileaks dumped tens of thousands of classified Afghanistan “war” documents into the public arena for consumption, the corporate media zoomed in on Pakistan. “WikiLeaks documents released Sunday shine a spotlight on Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, a spy agency that has been accused for years of having links to terrorist groups,” writes the Wall Street Journal.
“In the reports, the retired general [Hamid Gul] and former head of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) from 1987 to 1989 is accused of ordering IED attacks against Afghan and international forces in December 2006 and of plotting to kidnap United Nations staff to use as hostages in exchange for militant prisoners,” reports the Christian Science Monitor. “The ISI is mentioned in at least 190 reports, and is accused of backing attacks against US and North At*****c Treaty Organization (NATO) forces in Afghanistan.”
Demonizing Pakistan and Gul play right into the Pentagon’s script as the puppet Barry Obama expands the “war” in Afghanistan and sends drones armed with Hellfire missiles into Pakistan’s tribal areas to kill a never-ending cast of intelligence created bad guys.
It is also highly suspicious the documents appeared a couple days after the Bilderberg-attending globalist and Rockefeller minion Richard Holbrooke, who is Obama’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said “links between the ISI and the Taliban are a problem.” Holbrooke readily linked the Taliban with the mythical al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Taiba, and the Haqqani network.
The Pakistan connection eluded to in the documents also underscore the attempt by the U.S. to put Gul and three other former ISI officials on the United Nations’ international terrorist list.
lg.php
Holbrooke, of course, did not bother to mention that Pakistan’s support for Lashkar-e-Taiba was signed off on by the CIA. French investigating magistrate Jean-Louis Bruguiere said as much last year.
The founder of the Haqqani network, Jalaluddin Haqqani, was involved in the CIA-ISI effort in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union. The Afghan was cultivated as a “unilateral” asset of the CIA and received tens of thousands of dollars in cash, according to an account in The Bin Ladens, a book by Steve Coll. Haqqani helped and protected the infamous CIA asset Osama bin Laden. He was subsequently named military commander for another CIA contrivance, the Taliban.
Earlier this month Senate fixture Carl Levin called for stepping up attacks inside Pakistan. Levin specifically mentioned the Haqqani network and said the group “directly” threatens the “mission” in Afghanistan.
Both al-Qaeda and the Taliban are CIA assets. The Taliban emerged from madrassas established by the Pakistani government along the Afghanistan border and funded by the U.S., Britain, and the Saudis. The creation of the Taliban was “actively encouraged by the ISI and the CIA,” according to Selig Harrison, an expert on U.S. relations with Asia, a fact affirmed by Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.
“Between 1994 and 1996, the USA supported the Taliban politically through its allies Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, essentially because Washington viewed the Taliban as anti-Iranian, anti-Shia, and pro-Western. Between 1995 and 1997, US support was even more driven because of its backing for the Unocal [pipeline] project,” writes Ahmed Rashid, a long-time expert on Pakistan and Afghanistan.
In 2009, appearing before a congressional hearings on the Obama administration’s foreign policy, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted the U.S. created the Taliban. “Let’s remember here… the people we are fighting today we funded them twenty years ago… and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union,” said Clinton.
Following Clinton’s remarks, Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari told NBC News the ISI and the CIA worked together to create the Taliban. “I think it was part of your past and our past, and the ISI and the CIA created them [the Taliban] together,” said Zardari.
The Taliban conquered Afghanistan with the avid assisstance of the ISI and CIA. According to files at one European intelligence agency, the Taliban received “strong military training, not only by the Pakistani services, but also by American military advisers working under humanitarian cover” and were provided with “satellite information giving the secret locations of scores of Soviet trucks that contain vast amounts of arms and ammunition.”
Hamid Gul became the head of Pakistan’s ISI at the behest of the CIA. Gul was a favorite of CIA Station Chief Milt Bearden and U.S. ambassador to Pakistan Arnie Raphel, who viewed him as an ally and a potential national leader of Pakistan. Bearden would later claim that Gul wandered off the reservation and the corporate media would ultimately accuse him of complicity in the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Support and funding for the Taliban continues to the present day. In June, Rep. Dennis Kucinich accused the Pentagon of funding the Taliban. “Our troops are dying in Afghanistan, and now it turns out we may be funding their killers,” Kucinich told Raw Story. “The American people are paying to prop up a corrupt government that may be using our money to pay private companies to drum up business by paying the insurgents to attack our troops,” he said.
In addition, the U.S. has paid the Taliban to not attack convoys in the country. “A congressional investigation revealed that millions of dollars spent by the US military for security purposes has inadvertently gone into the pockets of the Taliban,” Aljazeera reported on June 23.
“Welcome to the wartime contracting bazaar in Afghanistan,” writes Aram Roston. “It is a virtual carnival of improbable characters and shady connections, with former CIA officials and ex-military officers joining hands with former Taliban and mujahedeen to collect US government funds in the name of the war effort.”
Afghanistan is America’s longest war for good reason — it is highly profitable for the military-industrial complex and provides an excuse for the government to maintain a foothold in central Asia while constructing a surveillance and control grid at home.
Pakistan is the new frontier of the Forever War on Manufactured Terror and the sudden appearance of tens of thousands of documents in part pointing a finger at the CIA’s junior partner in crime is highly suspicious to say the least, especially considering the CIA’s fondness for patsies taking the fall.

Afghanistan war logs: How US marines sanitised record of bloodbath

War logs show how marines gave cleaned up accounts of incident in which they killed 19 civilians

Brevity is the hallmark of military reporting, but even by those standards the description of one disastrous event is remarkably short: "The patrol returned to base."
It started with a suicide bomb. On 4 March 2007 a convoy of US marines, who arrived in Afghanistan three weeks earlier, were hit by an explosives-rigged minivan outside the city of Jalalabad.
The marines made a frenzied escape, opening fire with automatic weapons as they tore down a six-mile stretch of highway, hitting almost anyone in their way – teenage girls in fields, motorists in their cars, old men as they walked along the road. Nineteen unarmed civilians were killed and 50 wounded.
None of this, however, was captured in the initial military account, written by the marines themselves. It simply says that, simultaneous to the suicide explosion, "the patrol received small arms fire from three directions".
And the subsequent rampage as they drove away – which would later be the subject of a 17-day military inquiry and a 12,000-page report – is captured in five words: "The patrol returned to JAF [Jalalabad air field]."
The soldiers' initial concern, it appears, was a wounded marine – their only casualty. Forty-nine minutes after the initial bombing, they requested a "routine medevac" for a private with "shrapnel wounds to the arm". He was evacuated to safety.
An hour later came the first news of the trail of blood they left behind. A local government official told the marines there were "28 LN WIA", which in layman's terms means 28 Afghan civilians had been wounded. This later transpired to be a gross underestimate.
It was not the last one.
Two hours later Americans returned to the scene of the bombing to conduct an "exploitation of the blast site with pictures/grid cords as well as debriefing ANP leadership on scene". Journalists on the spot gave a more detailed account. They said angry marines tore their cameras from their hands, insisting they delete the pictures they had taken of bullet-pocked vehicles on the roadside. Rahmat Gul, a freelance photographer working for the Associated Press, said two soldiers and a translator came up to him and asked: "Why are you taking pictures? You don't have permission." Then they deleted his photographs.
Later, Gul said, one of the soldiers came up to him and raised his arm, as if to hit him. Taqiullah Taqi, a reporter for the private Tolo TV channel, said the Americans told him through a translator: "Delete them, or we will delete you."
But the Americans could not prevent anger surging through the local community. In those months, as the fighting escalated, concern about careless, trigger-happy Americans was rising in Afghanistan. The previous May, riots had spread across Kabul after a US military truck with faulty brakes careered into traffic, killing one man.
The logs report that nine hours after the shooting, the governor of Nangarhar province appealed to the marines to stay at home. "He did not want more CF [coalition forces] in the area due to public hostility." At about the same time the Americans stopped issuing internal reports. "Event closed at 1349Z" it read. But that was not the end of the affair.
Demonstrations ran through the streets of Jalalabad over the following days, the logs report, in which protesters broke windows and blocked roads.
A month later, in April 2007, the Afghan Human Rights Commission published a report into the shooting which said the victims included a 16-year-old newlywed girl carrying a bundle of grass and a 75-year-old man walking back from the shops. The report said the marines may have come under fire from one source straight after the suicide bomb but challenged the assertion they suffered a "complex ambush from several directions".
By then a US army colonel had admitted to the Afghans that the shootings were a "terrible, terrible mistake" and "a stain on our honour". He paid $2,000 to the families of each victim. The special forces commander in Afghanistan, Major General Francis Kearney, ordered the marines to pull the 120-man company out of the country, an unprecedented step.
But there would be no punishment. The marines, angered by the criticism of their unit by an army commander, held their own inquiry into the shootings and issued their findings a year later. It exonerated the marines. The troops "acted appropriately and in accordance with the rules of engagement … in response to a complex attack," said Major General Samuel Helland, the commander of marine forces in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
The inquiry lasted 17 days and heard from 50 witnesses, including Afghans who testified by videolink. But it did not hear from the four soldiers who fired their weapons, because they had not been granted immunity from prosecution.
The findings of the court of inquiry, which ran to 12,000 pages, were not released. No criminal charges were brought against any officer, although some did receive an "administrative reprimand".
As the war logs might have put it: "Event closed".

يہ بات خاصی مضحکہ خيز ہے کہ بعض تجزيہ نگار وکی ليک رپورٹس کے منظرعام پر آنے کی خبر کو پاکستان فوج اور آئ ايس آئ کو بدنام کرنے کی نئ امريکی کوشش قرار دے رہے ہیں۔ حقيقت يہ ہے کہ وکی ليک کی جانب سے جو دستاويزات پوسٹ کی گئ ہيں وہ جنوری 2004 سے لے کر دسمبر 2009 تک کی ہيں۔ اس لحاظ سے يہ رپورٹس کسی بھی طرح سے دونوں ممالک کی فوجی قيادتوں کے درميان موجودہ تعلقات کی آئينہ دار نہيں ہيں۔ ميں آپ کو ياد دلا دوں کہ 1 دسمبر 2009 کو صدر اوبامہ نے نئ پاليسی کا اعلان کر کے افغانستان ميں وسائل ميں خاطر خواہ اضافہ کيا تھا اور اس کے ساتھ ہی پاکستان ميں القائدہ اور طالبان کے محفوظ ٹھکانوں پر مزيد توجہ مرکوز کرنے کی ضرورت پر زور ديا تھا۔ اس کی وجہ وہ خطرناک صورت حال تھی جو گزشتہ کئ برسوں ميں مزيد ابتر ہو چکی تھی۔



ميں يہ واضح کر دوں کہ امريکہ آئ ايس آئ پر حملے کی پاليسی پر عمل پيرا نہيں ہے۔ حقیقت يہ ہے کہ امريکہ آئ ايس آئ سميت پاکستان کی بہت سے ايجينسيوں کے ساتھ دہشت گردی کے مشترکہ خطرے کے خاتمے کے ليے کی جانے والی بہت سی کوششوں کے ضمن ميں مل کر کام کر رہا ہے۔ گزشتہ سوا سال کے عرصے ميں پاکستان ميں اس حقيقت کا ادراک ہوا ہے کہ وہ دہشت گرد جو پاکستان ميں محفوظ پناہ گاہوں ميں چپھے ہوۓ تھے وہ خود پاکستان کے ليے خطرہ بن چکے ہيں۔ اس ضمن ميں مزيد اقدامات کے لیے ہم حکومت پاکستان کے ساتھ مل کر کام کرنے کے خواہ ہيں تا کہ امريکہ اور پاکستان کو درپيش دہشت گردی کے خطرات کا خاتمہ کيا جا سکے۔



ان رپورٹس کی غير ذمہ دارانہ اشاعت سے امريکہ کے پاکستان اور افغانستان کے ساتھ گہرے مراسم کے عزائم پر کوئ اثر نہيں پڑے گا تا کہ اپنے مشترکہ دشمن کو شکست دے کر دونوں ممالک کے عوام کی خواہشات کو پورا کيا جا سکے۔

Obviously there is only one way of thinking for those who support the terrorist raw of india, to hide the heinous crimes they are now trying to divert the attention . Take a deep look at raw in kashmir and their criminal activities in Pakistan.
