During today’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about the latest release of 90,000 secret documents by the website Wikileaks. Gibbs pointed out that, in addition to breaking federal law, the leaked documents pose a real threat to be harmful to both US military and those cooperating with our military efforts, particularly in the region of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The Daily Beast reports that one of the biggest revelations to come from these leaked documents are details on how the ISI – or Pakistan’s military intelligence unit – have been providing military resources to Afghan Taliban. The arms, military intelligence and money have allegedly gone to Afghan insurgents, who in turn have been killing US military forces. While this information isn’t necessarily new, it does confirmed what many insiders believed to be true for many years.
