On January 26, 2010, wikileaks.org published more than 90,000 confidential US military documents dating from January 2004 through December 2009. These “war files” document missions carried out in Afghanistan by the US army, including by Special Forces units such as Task Force 373 (TF-373), set up to capture or kill top Taliban and al-Qaida leaders listed on a Joint Prioritized Effects List (JPEL). The UN Special Rapporteur has previously reported [Afghanistan report] on covert missions to capture/kill suspects in Afghanistan, as well as on the law applicable to targeted killings. Interviews with Sarah Knuckey, Director of the Project on Extrajudicial Executions, on the implications of the wikileaks information, and the activities of TF 373, are available here and here. Links to select articles addressing the leak and its relation to targeted killings by US Special Forces can be found below.
