Scotland on Sunday publishes WikiLeaks cables

Secret US diplomatic cables on the war in Iraq have been made available to Scotland on Sunday and The Scotsman by WikiLeaks.

Scotland on Sunday describes the cables,
which the paper has put online, as giving "a damining verdict" on Gordon Brown's handling of the war in Iraq.

It says the cables accuse the former Prime Minister of pulling British troops out of Iraq to improve his chances of winning a general election, despite warnings from the UK's allies that withdrawal would represent a victory for terrorists.
