A tale of Wikileaks and war propaganda
Breaking with usual practice, the Wikileaks organisation have released their latest leaks directly through the mainstream press with simultaneous publications in The Guardian, Der Spiegel and the New York Times.
A disturbing outcome is that information in the leaked documents is being used by the media to incriminate Pakistan in the Afghan war.
The Pakistan connection was the top story on the BBC World News on the day the documents were released. The Pakistan Government is vehemently rejecting these accusations and a Pakistani government spokesperson said that the whole affair was an attempt to sabotage the US/Pakistan relationship. This comes at a time when the US is stepping up predator drone attacks against targets in Pakistan.
Clearly, there are multiple agendas at work here.
