There was another thread on this, pointing to many more cables being censored too. I looked at one of the "Tel Aviv" cables and it is interesting, to say the least. It talks about what would appear to be an effort by the Mossad to work with minority groups in Iran towards regime change, what we would consider to be a coup d'etat. Also, some questionable practices conducted by both Israel and the US could be gleaned from these censored cables.
As I have been saying for a while now, it appears as if WL isn't what TPTB would have us think it is. The extent to which this is true, I'm not so sure yet, though if I had to bet money on it, I would say that extent is great. There is a war going on for the minds of the masses and WL seems to be a very shrewed move on the part of TPTB.
Think about it, if WL itself doesn;t have any intentions of spreading disinfo, what would stop authorities from using WL to spread disinfo? Furthermore, if the Mossad and CIA can infiltrate foreign governments and terrorist cells, why would they also not be able to infiltrate WL, an organization that doesn;t have the resources or structure to guard against such an infiltration. In fact, the organization begs to be infiltrated, seeing how volunteers are used. So, at the very least, WL is probably being both infiltrated by intelligence agencies and being "leaked" disinfo, while at the most, WL whole purpose is to spread disinfo. Either way, I think it pretty much goes without saying that the organization and any information coming out of the organization, shouldn't be trusted. It would be extremely odd if the governments of certain countries weren't exploiting WL, at the very least.
Thanks for sharing, S&F!

It's my view that what's in wikileaks documents is not what's important. What's important is the idea of wikileaks, and the ideals of holding governments accountable to their own citizens and to the peoples of the world.
The idea is what is powerful, and as such, even if WL is a face of tptb, it can be transformative. TPTB may end up being their own worst enemy.
