LONDON (AP) - Nearly two months after WikiLeaks outraged the U.S. government by launching the release of a massive compendium of diplomatic documents, the secret-spilling website has published 2,658 U.S. State Department cables - just over 1 percent of its trove of 251,287 documents.

Likely to be several sources. Most of it is probably hoohum or they would have done more damage right off.
Those docs had to come from a disgruntled State Dept employee...On a good note, it did kill any further political ambitions Hillary Clinton had.
...which might have been the goal? One wonders.
Maybe the other 99% are incredibly dull.
Publish them all, already. Dish the dirt our overlords in the government didn’t want us little peons to ever know.
I supposeI I’m not a good FReeper as I’m not calling for the summary execution of foreign nationals in foreign countries for embarrassing the politician scum that lie to us and steal from us day in and day out.
I guess I haven’t got the “Yeah, they’re evil and they treat us like cattle, but they are OUR SCUM politicians and they need to be able to make all the secret backroom deals to screw us over that their ambition allows.” attitude.
I tend strongly toward your position, MC.
“Maybe the other 99% are incredibly dull.”
And how is that distinguishable from the 1% that was published?
Governments don't like to be embarrassed by the very words that their officials write to each other, as elites of all stripes avoid revealing to us commoners their own frailties that would unmask them as . . ordinary people who occasionally make mistakes.
I’m still waiting for the offshore banking list. What happened to that?
Whatever happened to the tax avoiding offshore bank account dump? Are they scrubbing it of Dems and Progressive (RINO) Repubs before release?
They are only releasing the docs that fit with their political ideology. So what is the high-minded idea behind that?
It’s just more self-serving BS.
I see neither of you have ever heard of Bradley Manning.
The State Deptment network is sperate from the Intelligence network where the little homo copied his files from. Now if you something we don't I would love to hear it.
The files came from a State Dept puke...That is why Justice Dept is investigating it.
Remember that they were going to release the bank documents at the beginning of this month. So much for that.
I agree with you, Michiganconservative.
