Today on the Signorile Show

The New York Times and German and British newspapers received classified material via Wikileaks which reveals, among other things, that Pakistan has been aiding the Afghan insurgency and U.S. intelligence officials have been suspicious of the Pakistan government for a long time. It's not anything that wasn't previously surmised but the documents provide vivid detail and focus in on specific incidents that underscore the brutality of the war, including war crimes, and how engaging in military action in the region is futile. In particular the documents paint a grimmer picture than officials have in the past. We'll go through some of it on the show today and take your calls.
