    Aslamualikum Everybody,

    Purpose of this thread is to discuss the "leak" itself and not the content in the "Afghan War Leak".

    WikiLeaks has reported a huge leakage of Confidential Documents. When everybody is talking about failure of USA in Afghanistan or the "hidden" hand supporting Taliban and the cause of us failures, most of us are not questioning the fundamental aspects and I am feeling compelled to raise these questions which are.

    1 - Are the "leaked" documents/record actually owned by the state of USA as credible and leaked "as it was recorded" ? When it is stolen, the thief has whole privilege to modify any part, append to it, delete sections and sabotage content to suit its needs.
    2 - Who had access to such a huge records? Is that a hacking attempt or deliberate plan to use/ misuse these documents for a purpose? Who has been held responsible for this leakage and has any action been taken against him/group of people involved?
    3 - Who is going to gain benefit of this "leak" and who is going to suffer from that incident? Even in the case of 9/11 and Mumbai attacks, the benificery was Government of USA and India and not anybody who was alleged to have involved. Who in this case is beneficiary?
    4 - USA in a million words has described that they are loosing the battle, rather lost in most cases so what is that they loose further by this "leakage"? Is that an attempt to suck American Soldiers back leaving the ground bleeding and un-controlled?
    5 - Why has this huge leak only related to Afghan war, why not any old or side-wars that America is fighting.
    6 - How is our "Friend" America going to take that.. so far they have been only "Friendly" as they ever were.. :hitwall:

    This leak is yet another attempt to hurt Pakistan and strangle it further. I do not see any change in the policy of USA/NATO in the war against "Terror" because of trick but only aim is to pave path to involve Pakistan/Iran in the -ve way, ignoring the huge loss that Pakistan has suffered, forgetting the massive contribution that Army and People of the land has offered and maligning the support that Pakistan has offered and still offering to fight against Terrorism.

    Trollers are hated everywhere, even in this thread.

    A leak that shows America is not doing well in Afghanistan.
    A leak that points towards possible war crimes
    A leak that exposes the capabilities of Taliban.
    A leak that shows the difficulties faced by America in its war on terror.

    A deliberate leak that puts the above aspects in public domain cannot be done with the consent of the intelligence of America or its ruling government.

    ^ Perhaps you need to see where most of the attention is being directed so as to see whom the leaks were directed at.

    This is in no way a deliberate leak get real people. Wikileaks is a anti-war whistleblower site it is their job to receive/find and make public these type of documents and the head of the site has made it clear their purpose is to expose as much truth they can about this war.

    Also the majority of the info has been reported and speculated on before. So the most interesting leak has been that the Taliban have been using surface to air missiles and have shotdown helicopters with them. So they seem to have access to MANPAD launchers probably left over from the soviet conflict. The leak of 90,000 pages didn't have the sole purpose of linking the ISI with the Taliban it is a overall account of the war in Afghanistan.

    Wiki leaks means nothing as far as Pakistan is concerned

    NOTHING

    Pakistan/US are in a strategic alliance and there is nothing more to it

    Attention in this forum will be directed towards Pakistan but that is not the case in Russian media, Aljazeera or America.

    Not just this forum. Disproportionate amount of attention is being directed at Pakistan across the media.
