Alleged war documents paint ground-level picture

WikiLeaks.org has published what it says are more than 90,000 United States military and diplomatic reports about Afghanistan filed between 2004 and January of this year. The first-hand accounts are the military's own raw data on the war, including numbers killed, casualties, threat reports and the like, according to Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks.org, which published the material Sunday.

CNN has not independently confirmed the authenticity of the documents. The Department of Defense will not comment on them until the Pentagon has had a chance to look at them, a Defense official told CNN.

    Guys this is plain simple... the afgan "insurgency" and the taliban is based mostly in the mountains were they have probably impunity for most of the things they do...So. from both sides of the mountain get a huge force and get every farmer families out of there and nuke the hell out of the mountains.. period... no more big insurgency.

    And for those who dont remember we were the ones who provide the missles that the taliban were using to make the russians leave. we armed the taliban and we make then what they are today, we even give then enough money and means to do what they do.

    Believe me when i said the indians will be very happy to help here.. No more pakistan we just make a hole. that's it.. no more support .

    It make sound awful but .......
