Taliban commander comments upon wikileaks documents

Responding to WikiLeaks’ release of tens of thousands of pages of classified military documents about the war in Afghanistan Sirajuddin Haqqani, a senior leader of the Haqqani network, said to The Daily Beast that he wished they had been leaked earlier because they provided evidence of American brutality in Afghanistan.

“This is just 30 percent of the atrocities which the U.S. and NATO  forces have done to the Afghan people during their nine years of  occupation,” he said. “Some people who were strong supporters [of the  U.S.] were disappointed by their cruelties… They never admit their  mistakes or regret the loss of innocent lives in bombings.” Such  bombings, he said, brought civilians “into Taliban camps.”
