WikiLeaks Files Criminal Complaint Against America in Sweden

The 186-page affidavit claims America stole evidence about “a war crime perpetrated by U.S. forces in Afghanistan.”

WikiLeaks filed a criminal complaint in Sweden on Tuesday ahead of the arrival of President Obama and a U.S. delegation.

The complaint — the first of four WikiLeaks says it has planned — concerns the “unlawful seizure” of WikiLeaks property in 2010, just after the group published thousands of classified U.S. intelligence cables pertaining to the war in Afghanistan.

The 186-page affidavit claims the United States stole evidence about “a war crime perpetrated by U.S. forces in Afghanistan in which more than sixty women and children were killed.”

    Snowden's leaks are getting awfully self-referential at this point.
