New York (CNN)The Washington Post's years-long fight to obtain the Afghanistan Papers began with a "good old-fashioned tip" about Michael Flynn.

纽约(CNN)《华盛顿报》为争取《阿富汗文件》而进行了多年的斗争始于关于迈克尔·弗林的“很好的老式技巧”。

The tip eventually led to transcripts of frank assessments about the Afghan war from hundreds of officials, bringing "into sharp relief the core failings of the war that persist to this day," in the words of the Post.

这篇文章最终导致数百名官员对阿富汗战争进行了坦率的评估笔录,用《华盛顿报》的话来说,“这场战争的核心败局得以清晰地显现出来,这些败局一直延续到今天”。

"I think we've finally broken through with the truth about the war," said Craig Whitlock, the investigative reporter who spearheaded the project for the Post.

为《华盛顿报》开展项目的调查记者克雷格·惠特洛克说:“我认为我们终于打破了关于战争的真相。”

And it started with Flynn.

从弗林开始。

Obtaining the transcript of the Flynn interview was a journalistic ordeal. The paper's first Freedom of Information Act request was denied.

获得弗林采访的笔录是一场新闻折磨。该文件的第一个《信息自由法》要求被拒绝。
