On November 28th, classified material from US embassies were released by Wikileaks.
The documents, more than 250,000 dispatches, provide insights into US foreign policy strategies, as well as shedding light on the nature of the relationship between diplomatic delegations and intelligence gathering. 
The documents also threaten to trigger a potential diplomatic crisis at global level, as the States referenced on the documents may begin to feel the strain of thinning and shifting consular relations.

  1. My favourite cable:

    A very nuanced ethnographic decription...
    (maybe some things should be kept secret before human resources & budgeting starts asking questions)

  2. I'm very interested to see what happens in the future with Wikileaks!
