WikiLeaks to release secret Iraq documents


~click picture to enlarge~
 Checking out Youtube with the search term, wikileaks, I came up with this window. that shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad. The video has a lot of views, 6.477. 668 when I last looked, but not as many views as the Tight Summer Booty videos that are suggested in the right hand column. There are three of them, and the total views between them is about 8,500,000. Is it just me, or shouldn't Youtube maybe suggest something that relates to the subject.

Wikileaks has obtained and decrypted this previously unreleased video footage from a US Apache helicopter in 2007. It shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad. They are apparently assumed to be insurgents. After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths ocurred. Wikileaks released this video with transcripts and a package of supporting documents on April 5th 2010 on http://collateralmurder.com

The controversial website WikiLeaks is expected to release 400,000 documents related to the war in Iraq.

The last huge WikiLeaks leak came in July when the site published what was dubbed The Afghan Diary, a compilation of more than 70,000 classified documents about the Afghanistan war. WikiLeaks was heavily criticized by human rights organizations, leaders within the U.S. government, high-ranking Pentagon officials and security experts for publishing the names of Afghan informants, thereby possibly putting their lives at risk.

Bradley Manning, who served as an intelligence analyst in Iraq, is the military's focus in the investigation into the leaks. The 22-year-old remains behind bars in Washington.

Since the July leak, WikiLeaks as an organization has suffered as a criminal investigation against its director Julian Assange continues in Sweden and several volunteers have quit. The company that was collecting donations for WikiLeaks recently ended its business relationship with the site.

Watch CNN.com for breaking news on the leaks and CNN.com's Afghanistan Crossroads blog for the latest about the conflict.
