Who wants to read Afghan detainee docs?

All 2,628 pages are yours for the taking

In an ambitious experiment in crowd-sourcing, the CBC is encouraging its readers to “have at ‘er” after publishing 2,628 pages of documents relating to the Afghan detainee abuse scandal. The documents, which arrived in the House of Commons on Thursday, are mostly from the military police, and include emails, field reports, and administrative reports “written for and copied to senior officials inside and outside the Canadian Forces.” The write-up, by Janyce McGregor, also says that they anticipate another “document dump” on or around April 6.
