Secret US Embassy Cables: Cablegate!

Statement from Wikileak:

Wikileaks began on Sunday November 28th publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into US Government foreign activities.
The cables show the extent of US spying on its allies and the UN; turning a blind eye to corruption and human rights abuse in “client states”; backroom deals with supposedly neutral countries; lobbying for US corporations; and the measures US diplomats take to advance those who have access to them.
This document release reveals the contradictions between the US’s public persona and what it says behind closed doors and shows that if citizens in a democracy want their governments to reflect their wishes, they should ask to see what’s going on behind the scenes.
The full set consists of 251,287 documents, comprising 261,276,536 words, covers from 28th December 1966 to 28th February 2010 and originate from 274 embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions.

HAPPY READING!
