    400,000 Pentagon documents made public via the WikiLeaks website at the

    Iraq war logs: 'The US was part of the Wolf Brigade operation against us'
    • guardian.co.uk, Thursday October 28 2010

    During
    the foreboding months of 2005, one police unit struck more fear into
    Iraqis than the entire occupying US army. They were known as the Wolf
    Brigade. Brutal even by Iraqi standards, their soldiers and officers
    seemingly answered to no one. They were seen as indiscriminate and
    predatory. The unit's reputation had been knownIraq-wide and results of their numerous raids are

    WikiLeaks should be declared 'enemy combatants', says Fox News contributor
    • guardian.co.uk, Tuesday October 26 2010
    • Sam Jones
    A
    Fox News contributor and former state department adviser has accused
    WikiLeaks of conducting "political warfare against the US" and called
    for those behind the whistleblowing website to be declared "enemy
    combatants" so they can be subjected to "non-judicial actions". In an
    opinion piece on the Fox News site, Christian Whiton lambasts Congress

    Every time WikiLeaks puts facts into the public domain, first about thewar in Afghanistan and now about Iraq,
    it is accused of partisanship and irresponsibility. The US defence

    What's the difference between acts of omission and of commission in the case of US authorities in Iraq (Iraq war logs,
    23 October)? We now know that hundreds of reports of torture, rape and
    murder were ignored by US officers. US troops stood by as abuses were
