February 19, 2009

A confidential NATO report on Afghanistan's civilian deaths has been leaked on Wikileaks.

``...civilian deaths from the war in Afghanistan have increased by 46% over the past year.''

``The report shows a dramatic escalation of the war and civil disorder. Coalition deaths increased by 35%, assassinations and kidnappings by 50% and attacks on the Kabul based Government of Hamid Karzai also more than doubled, rising a massive 119%.''

Good job Wikileaks!
