The article reports on the U.S. military files released from the website Wikileaks concerning the war in Afghanistan, which are considered to be one of the biggest revelations in the history of the U.S. According to British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC)'s David Loyn, the leaks will be shameful for the White House since the documents expose naiveness of U.S. political policy at the start of the war against Afghans. It adds that the leaks have developed a reputation for sensitive material publication.
