In War Everybody Spins

In War Everybody Spins

The Daily Beast flashed a scoop, exclusive scoop. The Beast reported that Sirajuddin Haqqani, a senior leader of the Haqqani network, denied any existing links with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, known by its acronym ISI. It would have been strange if the Taliban leader had said. "Yeah, you bet'ya!" And had given the names of a couple or several of his pals at the ISI.

The Taliban leader was responding to Sunday's WikiLeaks whistle blower site release of tens of thousands of pages of leaked classified military documents about the war in Afghanistan, among the documents were reports that the Pakistani spy agency helped the Afghan Taliban.

Quote the Beast -- “Look, we’re at war and would like to get aid from anyone to fight against the U.S. and its allies who invaded our homeland,” Sirajuddin Haqqani, told The Daily Beast on Monday.

During a war there is a lot of stuff thrown out there and a whole lot of it, most of it,  is misinformation. We've been fed a lot of misinformation about this war, coming from all sides. The only benefit that may come out of WikiLeaks' Afghan war files is that the American people are getting a glimpse of the war from the American military side without the spin.
