Anyone who hasn’t heard of the new wikileaks release of the Afghan Afghan War Diary, 2004-2010 — over 91,000 reports written by soldiers and intelligence officers covering the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2010 — must be living under a rock. It’s been all over the international news and is being compared to the [w:Pentagon Papers] released in 1971 by [w:Daniel Ellsberg]. In particular, the NY Times, Guardian UK, and Der Spiegel newspapers have all published detailed analyses of the document dump. In addition, BoingBoing has a Q&A with wikileaks volunteer Jacob Appelbaum and NYU’s Jay Rosen has written some interesting and thought-provoking thoughts over at PressThink. This is BIG folks!
