Karzai orders Wikileaks investigation

Thu, 29 Jul 2010 06:59:05 GMT 

Afghan President Hamid Karzai

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has ordered an investigation into revelations about the Afghanistan war made by the whistleblower website Wikileaks.

The Afghan president made the remarks at a press conference in the capital city of Kabul on Thursday, the Associated Press reported.

He was also asked about the Afghan informants who allegedly helped foreign troops in their operations against the Taliban.

Karzai described the release of the Afghans' names in the documents released by Wikileaks as shocking and irresponsible, saying the move has endangered their lives.

Karzai also noted that he was particularly interested in the papers that address civilian casualties and militant sanctuaries across the border in Pakistan.

The Whistleblower website has published some 90,000 files containing highly confidential information about the war in Afghanistan.

The files reportedly include the identity of Afghans, who are said to have provided US forces with intelligence.

After going over the report, Press TV was able to find the names of some of the locals, who have been identified by their names along with their places of residence and in some cases by their father's name.

In one case from 2007, a man named Amon Gull turned in weapons to US troops including eight Russian anti-aircraft rounds and six AP mines.

In another case from 2008, a man identified as Rokmat, son of Meermat, was arrested with a suicide vest at Park Hotel in the city of Khost.

It is feared that the Taliban would use the leaked information to identify and target those who cooperate with the US-led forces or their families.
