This is the WikiLeaks a Wikipedia which, as the name implies, serves to leak information that should not be made ​​public. As War reports in Afghanistan.

If you do not remember, this war was launched after the attacks on the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001. Months later, then-President George W. Bush sent thousands of US troops to the country in the Middle East. And years later, this week, WikiLeaks aired more than 90 thousand documents considered confidential on operations in the region.

The Afghan War Diary is possibly the largest database on the war that we have news. Of course, the information contained in it is highly sensitive, as fire reporting friend played in the picture above. The source of this information to WikiLeaks is not and probably never will be known as the Constitution of the United States – as well as the Brazilian – guarantees the confidentiality of the source.

Handcuffed, the Barack Obama called on Friday for dialogue. Far from being able to start any legal action against the site, Robert Gibbs, the communications secretary of the White House, he said the documents did not bring new information to the American people, but put at risk the lives of American soldiers.

During an interview, Gibbs said: “We can not do nothing but beg for the person who has these highly confidential documents and secret do not publish more [documents].” For Gibbs, the end of the publication of this type of document is fundamental to the security national.

The Minister of Defense, Robert Gates, also spoke up about it. Gates said the documents could put the lives of informants and US troops at risk.
