Classified documents provide window into realities of Afghanistan war

"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," reports The New York Times.  The documents were released online by WikiLeaks.org, but The New York Times, the British newspaper The Guardian and the German magazine Der Spiegel had been given access to the documents weeks ago on the condition that they not report on the material until WikiLeaks had released it.
