An immediate reaction to these leaks is the questioning our strategy in Afghanistan. Here’s The NY Times story on that angle.
Thus far the documents have not revealed any specific fact that any doubter of this policy doesn’t already believe. Essentially more fuel on the fire. The Afghan government’s reaction is also somewhat troubling, a shrug more-or-less.
The Karzai government offered no pushback to accounts in the reports that describe how the war effort has been hurt by corruption and the questionable loyalty and competence of the Afghan government, police and army. Instead, they focused on other problems outlined in the documents, including civilian deaths caused by the American and NATO militaries and Pakistani complicity with militants.
