Wikileaks secret US Embassy cable site live

Wikileaks has begun publishing the leaked "embassy cables" at its website, with a handy 'explorer' at cablegate.wikileaks.org. In total, the cache includes 15,652 secret documents, 101,748 confidential ones, and 133,887 that are unclassified. Iraq is the 'most discussed' country, while Ankara, Turkey, produced the most cables. External political relations and internal government affairs account for most of the cache, but more than 100,000 items concern human rights and economic conditions. 28,801 concern terrorism.

  1. Any previously unknown revelations about the financial crisis? I guess a lot of the deals to save the banks had to be discussed at diplomatic level.

  2. Any previously unknown revalations about Cyber Monday? Totally trying to find a hookup on a new snowboard.

  3. So far the leaks from the leaks look to me nothing like whistleblowing, and the failure to dig through the pile to separate the items that are whistelblowing from the items that are just gossipy makes it anything but journalism. This is like when the diary is copied and passed out in the movie Mean Girls. It does no-one any good.

  4. The fact that Wikileaks themselves grant the release a funky name like “Cablegate” speaks volumes about the massive size of the ego behind it. It probably can’t get a lot more preposterous than this. There’s a self-understanding void of humility at work.

  5. I could give a fuck about Iran, Iraq, Turkey or Salami!!!

    LEAK SOMETHING ABOUT UFO’S, MAN!!! WHERE’S ELVIS? WHO SHOT JFK? SASQUATCH?! CAROL CHANNING!!! I WANT REAL INFORMATION!!!
