Afghanistan War Logs

Wow. In a definite blow for Freedom of Information the whistle-blower site Wikileaks has provided ┬áthe Guardian, the New York Times and Der Spiegel access to the American Army’s War Logs for the Afghanistan war, totalling over 90,000 documents, from 2004 to 2010.

Check it out here:

This is a breaking story, with the Guardian’s specialist site only going up under an hours ago. And I expect it will run and run and run… and now we know wikileaks have this information we can only ask what else do they have?

Thanks to @iankatz1000 for breaking the story on twitter.

Update
