Afghanistan war logs: How the Guardian got the story
Secret military files have been opened up by Wikileaks in a joint venture with the Guardian, the New York Times and Der Spiegel
David Leigh, the Guardian’s investigations editor, explains the online tools we have created to help you understand the secret US military files on the war in Afghanistan
The Afghanistan war logs series of reports on the war in Afghanistan published by the Guardian is based on the US military‘s internal logs of the conflict between January 2004 and December 2009. The material, largely classified by the US as secret, was obtained by the whistleblower website Wikileaks, which has published the full archive. The Guardian, along with the New York Times and the German weekly Der Spiegel, was given access to the logs before publication to verify their authenticity and assess their significance.
