Wikileaks.org today released 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables that have apparently caused grave concern in Western governments.  The documents have already revealed that the U.S. has been spying on the United Nations Secretary General.  Also, Wikileaks is currently under a massive cyber attack that began early Sunday morning.  We can easily guess who is behind that.

The U.K.’s Guardian newspaper has been given the document release files by Wikileaks.  You can go and explore the database here.

The U.S. government has stated that the release of the documents is illegal.  I beg to differ.  It is information that people need to know about their elected leaders.  On the basis of this information we can begin to get rid of government officials who turn out to be little more than gangsters.  It may be time to realize that the release of information about the backroom dealings of Western governments and their diplomat/spies is a long overdue protection and counterbalance against criminal activities by government officials up to and including the President of the United States.

And in case you didn’t realize it, this is why President Obama wants an ‘emergency’ switch to shut down the Internet in the U.S.

Hey world, enjoy the data!
