From CNN intern Emily Landrieu:
Late yesterday, the infamous whistle blower website Wikileaks.org released what it claims to be over 900,000 U.S. military and diplomatic reports about Afghanistan ranging from 2004 until January of 2010. According to Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, the reports contain first hand accounts of numbers killed, casualties and threat reports among other things. Neither CNN nor any other source has confirmed the authenticity of the documents and Assange will not reveal where the documents came from. According to the New York Times, who had access to the documents before the official release, “the documents suggest that Pakistan, an ostensible ally of the United States, allows representatives of its spy service to meet directly with the Taliban in secret strategy sessions to organize networks of militant groups that fight against American soldiers in Afghanistan, and even hatch plots to assassinate Afghan leaders." Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Massachusetts, said in a statement Sunday that the documents, "raise serious questions about the reality of America's policy toward Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
The video has stirred up much controversy within the United States and over seas alike. Many believe that the posting of this information poses a threat to U.S. security and the security of our allies.
We want to know- Do you think this information could be a threat? Should it have been released?
Comment below and Kyra will read some during the 10am ET hour of the CNN Newsroom.
