i think the insurgents are a bit more sophisticated than we'v been led to belive. also the fact that they have releasd were some of this evedence is being stored is a bad thing. after im pretty sure the taliban will be pouring over these documents and theirs always the chance that they will try and retrive some of the said materials. on another note i think were gonna need a wikileaks forum on the site as this information continues to be read and posted on the site .

I agree that we need a forum, but only if there is enough interest. There are intelligence cables added to the database which make for really interesting reading regarding Iran and Pakistan.

But four tons of marijuana seeds! Man that is enough for a forest of the stuff. If the thread picks up interest, then I will keep posting the intriguing data entries. I did find one naming an informant and posted the details in another thread. I removed the names, not that the Taliban will be reading ATS.

Edit for typo

Very funny...

Taliban green initiative. Right, that's a one-liner I have to borrow if you don't mind.
