WikiLeaks: The State Department Files
— DrewM

The SOBs at WikiLeaks are back and along with their willing accomplices in the media they are revealing internal State Department communications. So far most of the stuff seems likely to cause some mild embarrassment and discomfort.

A few highlights.

Gaming out an eventual collapse of North Korea: American and South Korean officials have discussed the prospects for a unified Korea, should the North’s economic troubles and political transition lead the state to implode. The South Koreans even considered commercial inducements to China, according to the American ambassador to Seoul. She told Washington in February that South Korean officials believe that the right business deals would “help salve” China’s “concerns about living with a reunified Korea” that is in a “benign alliance” with the United States.

Bargaining to empty the Guantánamo Bay prison: When American diplomats pressed other countries to resettle detainees, they became reluctant players in a State Department version of “Let’s Make a Deal.” Slovenia was told to take a prisoner if it wanted to meet with President Obama, while the island nation of Kiribati was offered incentives worth millions of dollars to take in a group of detainees, cables from diplomats recounted. The Americans, meanwhile, suggested that accepting more prisoners would be “a low-cost way for Belgium to attain prominence in Europe.”

...

As he left Zimbabwe in 2007 after three years as ambassador, Christopher W. Dell wrote a sardonic account of Robert Mugabe, that country’s aging and erratic leader. The cable called Mr. Mugabe “a brilliant tactician” but mocked “his deep ignorance on economic issues (coupled with the belief that his 18 doctorates give him the authority to suspend the laws of economics).”

Hopefully Obama will read that last report, he might learn something.

It'll take awhile to parse all of this out as various WikiLeaks media 'partners' (in crime), roll out their stories.

Der Spiegel has a preview of their planned stories, including the revelation that the US was apparently getting some inside information as Germany built their coalition government and some unflattering assessments of the new German Foreign Minister.

Mostly they seem really surprised that the US isn't thrilled with Turkey's lurch towards Islamic fundamentalism.

Mostly it seems this is a story about they hyper-empowerment of individuals and small groups in the modern world. How in the world does an Army PFC get access to this material. Why can't the US government shut down a cartoonish 'international man of mystery' like Julian Assange?

It seems the most likely danger is that individuals will be afraid to share information with US officials out of fear that they will show up in the next batch of WikiLeaks. In some parts of the world that will get you dead right quick. Of course Assange doesn't care about that.

Personally, I think it would be kind of fun if Assange could get a hold of some European or Asian government files and see what they think about Obama and Madame Clinton.

Added:
Via Andy Levy....Blake Hounshell, the Managing Editor of Foreign Policy magazine is "live tweeting" as he reads through the cables. He's already found some interesting nuggets.

5 May I be the first to say: Who gives a fuck? Assange was the hero of the left back when he was releasing docs that embarrassed the Bush Admin. or the Military. But then he made the mistake of releasing stuff that will embarrass Obama, so now the left is apoplectic. I say choke on it.

13 Sure, there might be a slight embarrassment or two for the Obama administration. But almost everything is Bush era stuff. I wonder if the state department, notoriously liberal in their thinking, is actually feeding Asange this stuff for release. Would it surprise anyone to find the Obama administration, or certain actors within it, as complicit in these leaks??

 How in the world does and an Army PFC get access to this material.

What makes you think this stuff is coming from an American, much less one single American?

1.  It might be coming from multiple American sources.  Now that they have the cover of previous leaks (or other leakers), they are less likely to be singled out as a source.

2.  It might be coming from within the security/foreign affairs aparatus of our erstwhile allies - seeking to manipulate us using the same type of cover as noted in item #1.  Which might explain why Assange either does not have similar dirt on the Euroweenies, or is choosing not to run any of it.

Either way the US needs to squash this.  The best way would be to have something profoundly horrible happen to someone closely associated with Assange.

24 The State Department working on our side? Seems unlikely... Posted by: Laurie David's Cervix at November 28, 2010 02:20 PM (6bDVD) You know what we need? Televised show trials of the people leaking all this information. Go after them BIG TIME, destroy their minor bureaucratic careers, take away their precious pensions, throw them in prison during the best years of their lives. This is a case of Liberals thinking they are in some sort of Moral Superman position, accountable only to themselves rather than the law and the needs of the American people. Break them.

25 "17 Saudi King Abdullah proposed implanting Bluetooth chips in Gitmo detainees I kind of like this one." Me too. I think they should do that with any prisoner released on parole, any prisoner released after serving time for a violent felony, anyone deported from this country.

Yeah, I haven't seen anything indicating where the Manning leaks end and other leaks begin.

27 We also need to hold the people in charge of the different agencies being leaked from accountable. They are busy fretting over copy infringement on the Net, and how best to destroy America's energy industry. Meanwhile, they may as well have the Chinese People's Army responsible for the security of their cables and documents, for all the difference it would make. What a JOKE.

Posted by: CoolCzech at November 28, 2010 10:23 AM (tJjm/)

28 The radio is reporting that "hundreds of thousands of classified cables" have been released. That is obviously not the work of one man. No, it's a bureaucracy-wide epidemic of leaks, and piss-poor document control. And it needs to be punished; if all these people understand if fear, than so be it.

Posted by: CoolCzech at November 28, 2010 10:24 AM (tJjm/)

29 Which might explain why Assange either does not have similar dirt on the Euroweenies, or is choosing not to run any of it.

The explanation that presumes the least amount of unknown things is that he doesn't have any dirt State can't feed him. Strategically, they should be giving him all kinds of shit from everywhere and burying what they want leaked among that shit. But they don't have that shit. They only have their own shit.

Okay.... whatever. Personally, I think all this is kid stuff they've released. I want to see the WikiLeaks people go after some really big secret target, like the Community-Organizer-in-Chiefs college transcripts or his birth certificate.

35 If I had to guess, I would say that the WikiLeaks stuff is probably on several sites, and the order is that if Assange is taken out or arrested or whatever, they are going to release everything they have.  That's the only reason I can figure why he's still allowed to leak this stuff without consequences.

46 As per #23, HappyFifth:

"How in the world does and [sic] an Army PFC get access to this material."

Okay, HOW DOES an Army PFC get access to this material? Particularly, given his location ... someone or some group in Washington, or several consulates, makes more sense. Or am I mistaken, and such material, including diplomatic communiques, routinely circulates through the intelligence community, and at levels where a not heavily cleared PFC can get it?

Perhaps AssRange simply made some coordination calls, and Manning either was given all files or agreed to take credit for having all files and giving them to AssRange.

The "credit" part that bothers me; as a side observation, I suspect that Manning may not have realized that he was going to take credit for very many more files (or that there WERE additinal files than the ones he provided).

But having to take "credit" ... as previously asked: are there others, how many, who are they, where are they and specifically what are their jobs?

Manning is screwed; he likely knows no names, other than AssRange ...

I guess everyone has known, since at least the early 70's, that the State Department and Diplomatic Corps (a small difference) could not and cannot be trusted to even look out for American interests.

To some degree, the possibility of "others" in this leak suggests an attempt to undermine the US Government.

Don't buy into that myth promulgated by the MFM about the PP case. SCOTUS did not rule that people could leak secret documents with impunity, or even that newspapers could publish them with impunity.

What they said was that government could not pre-censor publishing them. If they wanted to block a newspaper from publishing a document they had to seek a court order and they had to show that the publishing of the document would be a clear and present danger to the national security.

Also, the leaker can be prosecuted as part of the security contract they sign as a condition of getting a clearance. The newspaper can be prosecuted for publishing the document IF the government can show in in court that the published article resulted in real harm to the government.

Ironically the PP did result in real harm and the deaths of several people who had helped the U.S. spy on other countries.

The government though failed to prosecute because they had already lost the case against Daniel Elsberg due to illegal spying on him.

Most of the time the government will not prosecute because doing so will most likely result in divulging even more classified info. Look at what happened in the NYC terror trial the government lost.

Seems unlikely. That would be dangerous to his health. It would also be dangerous to the health of anyone who wanted to send documents to the wikileaks outfit. Whatever the case, I still don't get the impression that Assange is a disinterested neutral seeker of truth.

55 This, combined with the previous doc dump, is proof positive that this nation's intelligence community - the CIA and the rest of the alphabet soup, State, the military - is broken nearly beyond fixing. Yeah, I know; imagine that.

Regarding the previous incident: What in the hell was a PFC doing with access to almost any of that? In that MOS, the rank of PFC indicates a year or less of experience and NO track record of reliability to speak of. The only way someone at that rank should have access to anything remotely sensitive should be when everyone above him is dead. Period. Which still doesn't take into account the progressive/marxist moles that infest every level of our intel apparatus. Putting Osama bin Laden in charge of our security would only be a downgrade in degree, not in kind.

If the government has so little in the way of legal recourse against the leakers of sensitive information, then what's the point of classifying documents at all?

I think I get it that the point of the PP was to strip Washington of the ability to hide info just by saying "National Security!" three times and clicking their heels together, particularly after Watergate. But hasn't the pendulum swung back a bit too far? It seems that nothing is sacred if these so-called classified documents can be made public with little to no effect upon the leakers.

There are still large chunks of this that I don't understand.

We must raise taxes, cut the DoD, and eliminate tax bennefits for all companies.  The rich should be taxed at 95% and everyone making over $75,000 should be considered rich. I made $17,900 dloars this year painting flowers and insects ( I am a free lance artist) and I send $50 a month to help president obama. He sent me a nice letter thanking me and others in Brattleboro for doing something good. What have any of you done lately to help the county ???

1. So far the leaks show the criticisms of regimes that Obama has been critical of, the UK, or those that the US has been at odds with for a long time.
2. Makes Clinton look like she can't manage the State Department.
3. The cables that are critical of things the left loves (the UN), deal with Clinton's handling of those issues.

This takes out the only Dem with stature that could take on a sitting President in a primary challenge.

The wiki-leaks are interesting but beyond the mere fact of interest they reveal nothing in terms of American policy that warrants contravention of keeping military and diplomatic secrets secret.   The goverment should be able to transmit contemporaneously diplomatic accounts and assessments without the fear of some bastard dumping such on the "open market" if you will when the subject matter would fetch all of a $2 bill at a Vegas Diplomatic Voyeur convention.

The focus should be on prosecuting these bastards. Unless, the general public is of concern what type of hair tonic Italy's prime minster prefers or how Libya's full birded colonel likes his traveling "nurses."

The truth is that international law is a bitch and we dont have half as much on him as people assume. He's a shifty little fucker with no allegiance to the US.

Interpol has an arrest warrant for rape and molestation charges. But he will be an international hero for bating the US. He'll be protected everywhere.

Best bet is that he gets shot "resisting arrest" in conjunction with his warrant by a CIA operative.

Or some badasses will have to vigilante and take him out without US government approval knowledge.

156 >>He is not exactly hiding...

Exactly. This admin wants this leaked to damage the good ole' USA. Assange  is being protected.

The Communist plan of forty five declared goals for taking over America without waging a messy war contains several items that are eerily similar to Barack Obama’s criticism of our U.S. Constitution. Obama has said our sacred Constitution is “fundamentally flawed” because it lacks a mechanism for redistribution of wealth from those who create it to those who merely consume it. 

 “The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties,” Obama told a Black radio station audience about seven years before he ran for President.  Perhaps our President isn’t familiar with the words of William Bradford the leader of Pilgrims.

Bradford characterized redistribution of wealth as a total failure because “men didn’t like having to share the fruits of their hard labor with other men who wouldn’t work.”

 The plan for taking over America was read into our Congressional record in 1963 by Florida Democrat  A.S.  Herlong, Jr. It contains the following points:  “Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs.”  This chilling goal is so similar to the stated criticism Obama made of our founding document that we need to constantly be aware of how he and his crew are trying to, in his own words, “fundamentally transform America.”

 Did he have these Communist goals at the ready when he framed his speech just five days before his victory?  A review of what the Communists planned revealed by Herlong, nearly 50 years ago, is frightening because of how much of this insidious plot is coming true. For instance, point 15 says, “Capture one or both of the political parties in the U.S.”(no question this one has been met). The next goal says, “Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.” Over and over we have seen the will of millions of voters overturned by just one judge.

 Again and again we see decisions from un-elected government bureaucrats being allowed to abrogate the wishes of the American people, and what is worse, we are witnessing the acquiescence of our elected officials who are allowing this to happen!

 Goal 17 in this scheme calls for the Communists to: ”Get control of the schools. Use them as conduits to force socialism and current communist propaganda into the minds of impressionable children. Soften the curriculum.  Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.”

 In the outstanding documentary “Waiting for Superman,” noted educational reformer Geoffrey Canada asked, “Why is this thing (public school system) an utter failure?”  He answered that bad schools make for bad neighborhoods which is the opposite of what we’ve been told many times as “educrats” make us feel guilty about not giving enough money to our schools.

 Another great educational reformer Howard Fuller talked about the “Dance of the Lemons” which forces school officials to rehire bad teachers over and over again.  Both men stressed the involvement of the NEA and AFT which gave “$55 million to federal candidates, more than any other lobby, and 90% of those teachers’ dollars went to the Democrat party, a wholly owned subsidiary of the teachers’ unions.”

Feel free to add your own, Morons.

 The breakdown of American morality, fostering pornography under the guise of freedom of speech, plus legal initiatives eliminating prayer in our schools are recommended in the Communist plan as is using our legal system’s principle of separation of church and state to consolidate their victories. These things are happening now.

 Why are we letting our country be destroyed from within? When will this scheme be revealed for what it is?

Any Government, up til about 40 years ago, wouldn't even think twice about putting a bullet in the back of this piece of SH*T's head and dumping him into an unmarked grave.

 

This is beyond screwed up.  We'd not think twice about MILITARY ACTION if a country was doing similar things breaking international laws of diplomacy.  Remember that missle that took out that Chinese embassy anyone?  They actually used the old 'oh oops those were old street maps we were looking at ... sorry about the destoyed embassy and stuff'.  and that was wussy boy Clinton!! ha

Nevertheless, he now deserves a long drop from a short rope.

In which case, whoever trained Manning and/or was in charge of him may have pucked up.  It could be a case of all of the above -- I don't know.

210 "Obama is going to retire Biden in late 2011."

If Obama was going to ditch Biden and not leave the Vice-Presidency vacant with Boehner immediately following him in the order of succession, he'd have to do it now, during the lame-duck session, not after the new Congress takes office.  Under the 25th Amendment, a vacancy in the Vice-Presidency is filled by presidential appointment requiring confirmation by BOTH houses, not just the Senate like other nominations.

Moreover, it's pretty well-known that Biden actually can't stand Obama.  If he was asked to resign, he'd probably say no.  And unlike any other federal executive official, the VP doesn't serve at the pleasure of the President: Barry can't "fire" him.

"He will pick his successor to join him on the 2012 ticket, who I suspect will be a general, possibly Petraeus."

A general maybe, but Petraeus I seriously doubt.  He pretty much dismisses any suggestion of interest in political office.  He's not Wesley Clark, for which we should consider ourselves infinitely grateful on a daily basis.

227 "So why no treason charge for PFC Manning?"

"He's been charged with a couple of things, but I don't see "treasonous acts" in there.  Maybe they will rethink the charges now."

Treason as such is not defined in the UCMJ, so it would seem he'd have to be charged in civilian court.  You see Eric Holder's DOJ doing that?

However, Article 104 of the UCMJ, "Aiding the Enemy," is pretty closely analogous to treason and carries a possible death sentence.  Article 106a, which covers espionage, is likewise a capital offense.  Every single document Manning provided could be charge as a separate espionage count, possibly numbering in the hundreds or even thousands.

There's very little doubt about this.  THis is all designed to harm the US and the main goal of the Third Worlder-in-Chief is to harm the US.  They had started out by trying to release tons of shit, themselves, but found resistance (just as they found resistance to importing foreign combatants and imbuing them with the rights of US citizens).  All these Wikileaks are in accordance with Hussein and his administration's intentions and efforts.  He doesn't care about embarrassing himself.  Look at how many times he made a fool of himself in public.  He doesn't care.  Anything that makes him look bad rubs off on the Office of the Presidency and degrades it a little more, and that's what he wants.

201 Really? 

Sorry for the snark, but I'm not the one asking why a mil intell analyst would have access to the secret squirrel stuff.

Thing of it is: Manning was a bit more than a "clerk", and honestly, by griping about this some of you are inadvertently slamming some young people who are not treasonous and do a very fine job.  I would take the time to remind you that we have diplomats, Pentagon employees, embassy Marines, and a host of other people who shouldn't have given away secure information (or given away how to access it)...and did anyway.  It sucks, but it does happen.  People are very easily played out; you just have to find their weak spot.

Unfortunately for Manning, he appears to have been a bit of an idiot -- in the sense that those who lack circumspection and suspension of belief are idiots -- which is of course very tragic for Manning and his family.  However, being an idiot and a patsy is not a defense of treasonous acts, so he needs to hang, or be shot -- either one.

The printing presses of the NYT, its web servers housing any classified information, and any and all other computers, disk drives, thumb drives, CD/ROMS, printers, monitors, keyboards, mice, webcams, USB devices, and any peripheral devices of any kind attached to the production stream for publication of these documents, is classified. Anybody handling these documents or involved in the editorial decisions to publish them is subject to fines and imprisment at Leavenworth on grounds ranging from espionage to high treason. Ditto for Wikileaks most obviously, and every other entity that published classified data.

When are the feds going to grow a pair? They sure as hell aren't shy about pushing "the little people" around. It's about damn time they pushed back against the leftist grandees. Hard.

But of course they won't. If Republican administrations won't do it, what makes anyone think a bunch of Marxists will? Hell, I bet you have some asshats on Pennsylvania Avenue high-fiving each other right now.

303 I am currently reading a book called "The World Was Going our Way" about KGB operations around the world. The KGB loved to create forgeries and then show them to people to influence them. They would show the Shah of Iran stuff we supposedly said about him, and the Shah would believe it. This wikileaks operation would be a Godend for this type of operation. How do they vet the materials to prove they are legit? ph, and the NYT had reporters duped by the KGB's forgeries, too. One even admitted it and said Mea Culpa...amazing.

307 This is just a laugh riot...
<a href="http://tinyurl.com/clintonwikifolly">"Most seriously for Washington, they also showed the U.S. had ordered a spying operation on diplomats at the United Nations, including British officials, in apparent breach of international law.
U.S. staff in embassies around the world were ordered by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to obtain frequent flyer numbers, credit card details and even iris scans, fingerprints and DNA of foreign officials"</a>

Hillary Clinton on signed orders violating International Law?  Remember when Democrats cared about undermining the USA's image and status in the World?  Remember when they were concerned with alienating Allies and Enemies alike?

Here the old Sniper Dodger, the one who illegally obtained FBI Files as a First Lady, foolishly signed and transmitted these orders around the Globe.  Even if someone was thinking this is a good move, spying on Diplomats, it is a really bad idea to have it known. 

The Democratic Partisan folly is a disaster.  Hillary Rodham is a joke of a Secretary of State, and it just got much, much, much, much worse. Spying on British Subjects as well?  Seeking DNA? Orwellian nightmare on display for the entire World. Hillary exposed as a creepy Authoritarian Swindler yet again. Thanks 'smart power'! Great job.
