WikiLeaks Reviews Some Of Its ‘Greatest Hits’ Leaks On Afghanistan

WikiLeaks Reviews Some Of Its ‘Greatest Hits’ Leaks On Afghanistan

Amid the total unraveling of Afghanistan in the wake of the Biden-ordered US troop withdraw and ongoing severely botched evacuation effort centered at Kabul’s international airport, WikiLeaks has been republishing a few of its more interesting leaks related to the past Afghan war logs, a vast drove of classified US documents which first hit public view over a decade ago.

Also this past week a 2011 clip of Julian Assange breaking down what’s behind America’s longest ever war has resurfaced and is going viral: “The goal is to use Afghanistan to wash money out of the tax bases of the US and Europe through Afghanistan and back into the hands of a transnational security elite. The goal is an endless war, not a successful war,” Assange said in the old interview footage

Below are some of the more interesting archived leaked documents that WikiLeaks called attention to this past week and into the weekend related to Afghanistan and America’s longest running war.

1) NATO ‘death squads’ in Afghanistan
