    Assange unveils latest WikiLeaks release: Project K

    On Monday, WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange released a series of 1.7 million files showcasing the communications of the US Department of State between 1973 and 1976. According to Assange, the documents will give journalists insight into the US' political goal at that time and highlights Henry Kissinger's communications with foreign governments. So what does this new leak mean and why are they so important? WikiLeaks spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson explains why they went public on WikiLeaks.

    A great release of cables for history, for the press, and freedom of information! This is why we need wikileaks and a open government. They are declassified however you need experts to help you find them Wikileaks made them easier to find and released them to the general public.

    This is a travesty. Assange has no business doing any such thing.

    I'm confused, these are declassified documents but you are claiming a victory for open information?

    Yes, they are declassified documents, but Wikileaks has arranged them all very nicely so that anybody can read them. A modern version of Cliff Notes, if you remember them, designed to show how petty and manipulative, and how criminal at times, the federal government is.

    This is real journalism at work, like it or not, and real journalism is a very rare thing is one habitually reads or watches the mainstream media.

    Sounds like a marketing problem. If the information isn't leaked, then it doesn't seem to be Wikileaks m.o.

    Seems like an executive summary following by links to supporting relevant documents would be of greater help. I remember "Cliff Notes[sic]" well enough to remember that they were called Cliffs Notes.
