Last Friday, the infamous whistle-blower website Wikileaks, published classified documents related to the Iraqi war.

The New York Times is saying that the most recent documents to be released via the site reveal a new idea of the number of Iraqi civilians killed during the war. The latest round of documents also discuss Iran’s role in supporting the Iraqi militants, as well as several accounts of abuse by the Iraqi army and police.

Wikileaks provided several newspapers, including The New York Times, with access to the documents prior to their official release on the Wikileaks.org website. The United States military is currently notifying those Iraqis named in the documents according to Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell.

“This is all classified secret information never designed to be exposed to the public. Our greatest fear is that it puts our troops in even greater danger than they inherently are on these battlefields. That it will expose tactics, techniques and procedures – how they operate on the battlefield, how they respond under attack, the capabilities of our equipment… how we cultivate sources and how we work with Iraqis,” added Morrell.
