Very nice attempt at derailing the thread. Here's the deal - ALL of the Wikileaks fanboys who have posted against the OP in this thread say that this
is nothing new, Wikileaks said they would do this, and I shouldn't be trusted because I'm new.
First, just because I have only been a member for 11 days doesn't mean I'm 11 days old. I have been thinking for myself for AT LEAST 4 years
argument has zero legitimate weight in this entire debate, and I'm ashamed to think that you would rely so heavily on this point as some sort of
Second, many responses have NOT read this entire thread - nor have they investigated this by themselves (as was recommended in the OP), which is key
to the integrity of the OP. The content of the cables is BEING MANIPULATED IN WHOLESALE by Wikileaks AFTER their initial release. You can see the
edits they've been trying to hide from you by following my instructions in the OP
, or even reading the entire first page of this thread. There
are 3 examples of how Wikileaks is editing (without reporting these edits to the public) entire paragraphs, and deleting entire cables. The content of
these edits can be read using Cable-Diff, and it's not pretty - they are actively manipulating how some characters and countries in the cables should
be perceived by the doe-eyed public.
Quit being an unquestioning fan, and do some investigative work for yourself before you honestly believe your position to be true. Wikileaks IS NOT
what they claim to be, they are hiding parts of the "history" they are trying to portray and protecting specific geopolitical interests (namely, the
US), and they DO NOT represent nor should be the flagship of transparency.
Don't just read the thread title, skim the OP, look at my avatar info then post. You are not basing your information on anything but emotional
attachment to your side of the argument. PLEASE, READ THE CABLE DIFFERENCES FOR YOURSELF, and then judge.
