The cable release is slow and i dont know for sure why they are being drip fed to us. I do have a few ideas though.
1) the impact of the cables is increased if they are released slowly. it gives media and people more time to digest them. dumping a couple of hundred
thousand cables together is not very digestabe. this was something wikileaks learnt with the war files
2) the cables are being censored in an attempt to remove peoples names who could be harmed because of the cables.
There is a lot of cables this will take some time. Again this was learnt from the release of the war files
3) Bradley mannings the alleged whistle blower from the american military is soon to go on trial. He has only been charged with releasing 50 or so
cables. It may be possible that wikileaks are holding back the files until he goes on trial and is charged. They government dont know what he has
leaked and maybe if there is no evidence available it is more difficult to charge him.
cables are being released daily. The mainstream news has reduced the exposure of them. so it is up to people to get the info out and assess what it
only guesses on my part though.
