Afghanistan Leaking

From what’s been reported so far, the massive leak of secret US documents about the war in Afghanistan further confirms what progressive voices inside Afghanistan like RAWA and Malalai Joya and critical analysts outside the country have been saying for some time: the US occupation is murderously brutal and props up a vicious ramshackle Afghan puppet regime against a Taliban-led insurgency that is growing stronger and stronger thanks in large part to the occupation and its client government.

The July 26 panel discussion on Democracy Now about the leak is interesting.

Glenn Greenwald’s piece on is too, and contains lots of useful links.
