How a secret "black" unit of special forces hunts down Taliban leaders for "kill or capture" without trial.
11.16am: Siamak Heraqi, a spokesman for the Afghan government, is reported as saying: "The Afghan government is shocked with the report that has opened the reality of the Afghan war."
11.15am: Security minister Lady Neville-Jones, former chair of the UK's joint intelligence committee, said the leak had implications for the security of government data.
"I think that every government has to be extremely aware of the vulnerability of its systems," she told BBC Breakfast.
"We don't know how they got that material - it may be a combination of leaking of documents, but also one strongly suspects they have hacked into systems as well.
We are at war with the Taliban. They are now considered insurgents or guerilla's. We don't have the right to just kill them if they surrender, under international law, they must be accorded the treatment of a P.O.W.

BBC just cut off Assange as he was talking about the cover-up of civilian deaths at all levels of the US military, especially at the bottom, and so any policy to record civilian deaths in Afghanistan by Obama or a general was useless.
The BBC then went on to summarize his comments by saying that this release could endanger lives of soldiers without bothering to mention anything else in any detail.
I thought it was the public who pay for the TV licence, not the corrupt governments!!! Stupid gutless and cowardly BBC scared of the truth! :flame
