Mercenaries Dominated Iraq War - Will Increase As War Winds Down, According To Documents To Be Published By Wikileaks




Loyalists who communicate with renegade on-line publisher Julian Assange must use encrypted cellphones if they expect to talk to him, according to an exclusive interview he gave the "Times."


A filmmaker travels by his side to "document any unpleasant surprises" that might befall him.


Strange things happen to Mr. Assange in his travels. Reportedly, a duffel containing three scrambled laptops disappeared on a near-empty flight to Berlin following his successful bid for asylum in Sweden following his release of more than 100,000 secret documents regarding the Afghan war.


According to advance stories, the documents to be released worldwide within the day give details of an American military presence that relied heavily upon the use of mercenary "contractors" to staff sensitive military missions during the Iraq war. Said a "New York Times" report that reviewed the documents in advance of their release, the documents "describe an outsourcing of combat and other duties once performed by soldiers that grew and spread to Afghanistan to the point that there are more contractors than soldiers."


Their numbers are expected to grow as the American military presence winds down.


Numbers of Iraqis who died in the fighting appear to have been much higher than acknowledged during the Bush Administration. Many unofficial reports have fixed their number at 1.5 million.


The documents paint "an even more lurid picture" of abuse of Iraqi prisoners than the revelations of their treatment at Abu Ghraib Prison earlier in the war in illicit pictures made by American soldiers.


Iran's military intervened "aggressively," in ways "more than has been generally understood" to arm and equip Shiite combatants. They furnished weapons, training and cross-border hiding places. In some cases, Iranian troopers engaged Americans in the fighting, according to the documents.


Daniel Ellsberg, famous leaker of "The Pentagon Papers" during the 70's, told the "The New York Times" that he has been waiting for 40 years for another publisher to come along and do what he did. In this case, he told the newspaper's editorial staff, the activities of Mr. Assange have far exceeded his expectations. Pentagon officials furnished with redacted copies of the documents that will be published did not demand they not be published, but expressed regret that they will be divulged. They said to do so will endanger many thousands of peoples' lives.


This is one of the more than 300,000 documents to be released by Wikileaks in defiance of U.S. National Security policy and the wishes of Pentagon officials.

It details the facts surrounding a certain type of lethal "penetrator" warhead smuggled from Iran into the war zone that were most effective in setting car bombs and IED's to booby trap American armed forces during the war.
