If Assange really had something of major importance that has not been reported on or suspected, I think he would have already mysteriously disappeared.

Governments worldwide are feigning shock, embarrassment and outrage to the release of information that is most certainly already well known by all the principal (not to be confused with principled) players of world diplomacy. They do this to save face in front their subjects, constituency, and citizens, people like you and me; who were never meant to learn the truth behind the course of world events for which we are all pawns.

Is there govt transparency? When one reads wikileak information, much of the information is hidden away from the public. Some of the information is not viable based on the time frame. I never realized we were spying on members of the UN when in fact we are also a signature to the UN charter. Additionally those who signed the charter agreed to respect sovereign nations and I now find that questionable.

Actually, this is not new. I believe that I read it in one of James Bamford's books that we eavesdropped on a previous head of the UN. I believe it was Bhoutris Bhoutris Galli (sp?), but can't recall for sure. We spy on everyone. Read Bamford or David Kahn for a history, among others.

How are we as a country to maintain our integrity if we do not live up to the agreements we sign? We are in a war based on lies and the world knows it. GWB assured the world we'd find WMDs and there were never there.

Looks like our diplomats have to use their diplomatic skills to clean up our lack of maintaining integrity. Personally I think that is most appropriate.

I think Julian Assange has a God complex and is a control freak/megalomaniac.

I don't know about that. Remember, he was being accused of rape. Early on the charges were dropped, but now they are going after him again. I'd say, if he's innocent, that he may be a little cranky about all of that. So it's payback time. Besides, most of what I've read is a lot like tabloid gossip.

Given the warnings of his next Hit, where does Julian Assange do his banking?

Anyone who thinks these leaks were not "permitted" please follow the rest of the sheep off the cliff.

Exactly. They knew that he had this info for a long time. But maybe he has something else as well. Most of this seems like gossip. I like the Batman and Robin comparison.

And everyone giving Assange a hard time about this are avidly reading all the juicy tidbits, chortling and cursing him at the same time. An increasingly weird world.

This isn't news. The Red Crescent Society has been doing this for years. It's why I stopped donating to The Red Cross.

US: Demonstrates the threat that Iran poses and N. Korea's part in it -- opportunity to build a coalition for action against either or both.

Now North Korea and Iran know they have less support than they thought.

It is a crack up that H p censors comments on this... isn't it?

It demonstrates that the libbies care more about their media reputation than they care about the reputation of the US.

If you think you're the only one who gets censored you're delusional

Puh-leeze.....we all get censored around here. And sometimes even when posting the most innocuous commentary.
07:33 PM on 11/29/2010
Even when we use the very words that are contained in the story we're commenting on.

So the fact that it was "childishly easy" to download these cables, sure doesn't give me any reassurance that Washington knows what the left foot is doing from the right.  The government appears to be run by boobs that open up mouth and insert foot all the time suggesting the idea they might be overheard, or conversations tapped or this has never crossed their mind.  If I was in Washington I would speak as if I assumed what I said was going to be repeated. 

Everybody keeps harping on the content which IMO isn't all that surprising, but they ought to be concerned about how to secure their ramblings.
06:09 PM on 11/29/2010
Exactly. What ever happened to "on a need to know basis"? And what happened to "encryption" and "codes"? Does anyone really believe that "email" is secure??
08:12 PM on 11/29/2010
Just as it would be childishly easy for Alqaida to intra-corporally conceal explossives on board a plane. Jet none of our current invasive screening methods are one bit effective against that.

Does China have a role in this?

Perhaps not active except that one of the cables implied that China might favor a unified Korea alternative. So, there you have it. They probably didn't wish to say that publicly.

So, One Korea is Best Korea! lol

China certainly has an interest in keeping the US focused on spending its treasure on Defense rather than Economics.

Keep in mind, only a couple hundred of the 251,000+ documents were actually released.
