The intention with this post is to inform the ones of you who take interest in military and diplomatic history.
Please be advised that this post is not aiming for any sort of debate, but simply is here to act as an announcement for the intrested ones.



TODAY 29th November 2010, Wikileaks started the release of 251 288 Top Secret, Classified or Confidential US Diplomatic cables sent to/from US Embassy and to the US State department from 2004-2010. This diplomatic cabals include everything from secret US trading information and strategies to information about US spys operating in different country. The Cables also include different analyses made by US diplomats of the host countrys political parties and statesmen, how they can be influenced and/or if they can be bought! Ect.

Currently Wikileaks is under a heavy DOSS hacker attack but last I herd is that the Swedish police is aiding us in preventing the attack by re-routing the hostile traffic.


The Files will be released in different formats, if you like you can download all the 251 288 via Bittorrent, OR you can enter a dedicated site and brows through them in searchable format. The files will be released in increments to allow the World's population to observe the data before the next few thousands of Cabelas is released and so on. Within the next 6 months all 251 288 will be available.

There is a lot of data to go through so if you are interested I recommend it, it is most certainly a good read.


PS1: In some countrys it is illegal to browse through secret and classified information without permission, we don't have that problem here but I'm just mentioning it as I assume many of you are accessing the Internet from the USA.


PS2: Newspapers and media in most of the host countrys you read about (the ones effected or targeted in the US secret cables) most often pay for tips, here it is made into somewhat of a sport to dig in the Wikileaks archives (ie. US Iraqi war Loggs +/- 400 000 loggs) or now this US secret Embassy cables and then to provide the document numbers or page numbers to the local national news agency - who then will compensate you for your efforts.


PS3: This is an announcement, not a political discussion so please be refrain from making it into one.

I'm not really sure that this forum is the place to post this. It's my opinion that this thread is gonna go off like a firecracker.

Its difficult to keep secrets in the 21st century.Perhaps they should scrap e mails and use carrier pidgeons or couriers.

The last person to post a thread here about the preposterously biased and overtly anti-American enterprise that is wikileaks (while coyly feigning neutrality) was reported to have died in an auto accident less than a week after the thread was started.

I wouldn't worry about it, though. I am sure everything will work out.

Just in case, if you see a strange aircraft with a narrow fuselage and a dihedral tail overhead, I would immediately get to the basement of a big building or a heavily wooded area....oh....and stay of your cell phone too....

In fact, don't ever go on the Internet again. Ever.

Hum, let's see, are you God or just the Pope? Imagine, thinking you are "authorized" to make "announcements" ... I guess really you are just FOUR YEARS OLD ... your parents should put you to bed with a spanking!!!

Hi Rudolf,

Less than a week ago, I asked you to remove a comment on Wikileaks from your signature as it was against the forum rules in that it would promote political discussions. You agree to that and then posted this here a few days later? There's clearly no misunderstanding here and as a result I need to give you some time to think things over. You are banned for a week, please e-mail me at erikr@matrixgames.com after that week when you have had time to consider - if you agree to abide by the forum rules, you are welcome to come back.

Regards,

- Erik
