Karzai: Release of secret docs endangers Afghans
Thu, 29 Jul 2010 10:13:48 GMT —
Afghan President Hamid Karzai says the release of secret U.S. military documents has endangered the lives of Afghan citizens who have cooperated with the international forces.
Karzai says he's ordered his Cabinet ministers to study the more than 90,000 documents on the Afghanistan war posted Sunday on the Web by WikiLeaks. He calls the release of papers naming Afghans who side with the NATO-led force "shocking" and "irresponsible," and says "their lives will be in danger now."
At a news conference, Karzai says he's particularly interested in the papers that address civilian casualties and militant and terrorist sanctuaries across the border in Pakistan.
