A lot of the wikileak cables mention meetings attended by many different parties,
but, is there a way of confirming that the Officials mentioned were actually there?
I haven't read on ATS about this point amongst the "wikileaks are good", "wikileaks are DISINFO" threads.
After reading a recent post about wikileaks being part of a dis-info strategy,
I thought that maybe if it was one big chess piece in the next stage of the game,
then with that many cables,
someone could type in the wrong ambassadors name, or some other glitch on timing.
What if a cable says that:
"US ambassador ABC and Tony Blair discussed lollypops at the UK Embassy on Jan 14 2002"......
but a search of newspapers, or the govt websites/press releases, showed that Tony Blair was in Germany at that time....
Well there may be a case for querying the source of the cables.
Has anyone heard or seen any research like this?
