The Upside to Wikileaks

Amazing video created by some folks who used data from the wikileaks.

Visualisation of Activity in Afghanistan using the Wikileaks data from Mike Dewar on Vimeo.

It shows where and when incidents occurred.  Could be very deceptive since what counts as an incident is not entirely clear from the website.  Not really surprising--most violence in South and East, with increases over time and some spread as well.  But still a nice illustration.  Pay attention to mid-2006 as Canadians engaged in Op Medusa, Canada's most intense combat since Korea.
