What do the leaks mean for the US?
Wikileaks has released almost 400,000 secret US military records, which suggest US commanders ignored evidence of torture by Iraqi forces. What is your reaction to these new leaks?
The documents also reveal many previously unreported instances in which US forces killed civilians at checkpoints and during operations.
A US Defence Department spokesman dismissed the documents as raw observations by tactical units, which were only snapshots of tragic, mundane events. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said earlier she condemned "in the most clear terms the disclosure of any information by individuals and or organisations which puts the lives of United States and its partners' service members and civilians at risk", but did not go into specifics on the disclosures.
What is your reaction to the release of these documents? Does it put lives at risk? Does it change your perception of the Iraq conflict? Do you trust leaked and unprocessed information?
