Today, Thursday 5 July 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing the Syria Files – more than two million emails from Syrian political figures, ministries and associated companies, dating from August 2006 to March 2012. This extraordinary data set derives from 680 Syria-related entities or domain names, including those of the Ministries of Presidential Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Information, Transport and Culture.
Over the next two months, ground-breaking stories derived from the files will appear in WikiLeaks (global), Al Akhbar (Lebanon), Al Masry Al Youm (Egypt), ARD (Germany), Associated Press (US), L’Espresso (Italy), Owni (France) and Publico.es (Spain). Other publications will announce themselves closer to their publishing date
"The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents. It helps us not merely to criticise one group or another, but to understand their interests, actions and thoughts. It is only through understanding this conflict that we can hope to resolve it."

It covers both sides? I have a bad feeling about this. Why does it have to be published now? Another attempt to justify a NATO intervention?

Or may be this is the huge propaganda campaign NATO was recently talking about unveiling, courtesy of wikileaks.

Goody goody yum yum.
I hope they have some juicy files on how NATO is stirring the pot over there. I'm not saying that Assad is totally innocent, just that we only mainly hear one side of the story. So if they really do release these files, will it help Julian Assange fight extradition, I doubt it but hope it provides some fireworks.
