ABSTRACT
The author discusses the role of media in expanding transparency in various issues, including the leaked Afghan war archives revealed on Wikileaks. The author believes that the leaked war archives prove that U.S. policymakers isolate themselves from the real military issues documented by the U.S. military officials. He also comments that everyone lives in a current world where everything is documented by the media including police brutality, underhanded deals by company chief executives, and politicians making personal comments off the microphone.
