Hidden Secrets of the War on Terrorism - Silent Rogue
"A six-year archive of classified military documents made public on Sunday offers an unvarnished, ground-level picture of the war in Afghanistan that is in many respects more grim than the official portrayal." (NY Times)

Leaked by WikiLeaks, the documents detail the use of heat-seeking anti-air missiles used by militants in Afghanistan as well as a list of assassination targets pursued by special operative of the US Navy and Military. The text also reveals why the US has had such a difficult time shutting down the terrorist operations in Afghanistan and alludes to the alleged initial objective of the war: the capture of Osama bin Laden (who is apparently making use of his time acquiring weaponry and attending meetings in Pakistan).

The White House is definitely not pleased with the leak and states that the release of these documents could endanger the lives of US citizens. How exactly? I don't know, but if you want to read the documents for yourself click right here and download the files.
