The WikiLeaks document dump confirmed suspected double dealing by Pakistan. (Anne Applebaum uses the NYT’s own year old story to zing the Times for presenting Pakistan support for the Taliban as news.) Afghan president Hamid Karzai has already threatened to join the Taliban. Maybe we should cut out the middle men.
ProPublica compares the WikiLeaks to the Pentagon Papers and finds them wanting. Only in America can you dump 90,000 classified documents and have nothing new. (Unless you consider 2 media entities with 4 capital letters something new.)
