BAGHDAD – Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Saturday that his opponents are using leaked classified U.S. military reports to discredit his administration as he struggles to secure a second term in office.

Maliki’s government also said in a statement in response to the trove of documents released Friday night by the whistleblower group WikiLeaks that it would investigate newly disclosed shootings by employees of the American security company formerly known as Blackwater.

“We need to take these documents into consideration in order to achieve justice for our citizens,” the statement said.

Referring to details of cases in which U.S. forces had killed Iraqi civilians, the statement said the U.S. military’s “permissive” rules of engagement had led to a “point of crisis” between the two countries.
