Here It Comes! Next Wikileaks Release, More on the Human Terrain System


CORRECTION–Today. The Iraq War Logs were released this evening. At the moment, the service is badly overloaded.

Tomorrow will bring the much anticipated release of hundreds of thousands of U.S. military documents from the Iraq war. We can expect them to contain information about the Human Terrain System, and I will be combing through the documents as before, plus checking every single name of persons listed in a database I kept of known members of Human Terrain Teams that served in Iraq. All of the results will be published on this site, and PDFs of the complete set of documents will also be made available here.

Along with many others, I have been badgering Wikileaks to release the final 15,000 Afghan War Diary documents, in order to complete work already begun.

Stay tuned (see postscript below).

In the meantime, here are all of my past articles involving Wikileaks (minus the regular updates provided in the weekly Encircling Empire Reports):

P.S.: That is unless something once again impedes Wikileaks and it turns out to be yet another time to laugh at all of us. In which case, we can entertain ourselves with some refreshing Wikileaks memes…this one comes from the Julian Assange Fanciers’ Guild, and is inspired by this tweet from Assange:
