10 Talkbacks for this article
LAWRENCE ,   SAFED ISRAEL   (11.29.10)
Mrs. Clinton has egg on her face,and deservedly so .An arrogant and obnoxious woman.
2. Bush wanted investigations with un and terror grounps
jason ,   miami, usa   (11.29.10)
Please don't conflate the two. Clinton wanted info in order to be able to find ways to win favor with ban. Clinton and Obama sold israel out to ban ki moon on the flotilla investigation. I fear that Obama will get credit for actions that bush took. These documents are from 2004-2009 and five of the six years were from bush administration. I wish the articles would mention that as I already see this left wing crusader getting support he doesn't deserve.
3. Assange Hypocrisy
pak2rat ,   Bowling Green, USA   (11.29.10)
If Julian Assange values govt openness and transparency, why does he ONLY release USA documents when he isn't even a US citizen? Why is there nothing on Russia for activities in Georgia or Chechnya? Why not release top secret information from CHINA, N KOREA, or IRAN since he claims to be such a champion of human rights?

pini ,   usrael   (11.29.10)
Because he is a douche
5. Assange Can Only Leak Documents That He Has
Elizabethlynne ,   Dallas, TEXAS!   (11.29.10)
As much as he might want to leak other documents, getting his hands on them is very difficult. My guess.
6. #3
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (11.29.10)
No one in the world doesn't know that Russia, China, N Korea and Iran violate human rights. What people did not know is that the Saudis officially asked Obama to attack Iran. What people did not know is that the lynchpin of American strategy in Afghanistan, Pakistan president Karzai, is a weak paranoid leader. But most interesting is the Nobel Prize Winner Obama would mount a cyberattack to silence Wikileaks and order the CIA to frame Assange for a rape he did not commit.
7. 3 Billion US taxpayer money for the UN is money down a rat
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.29.10)
hole, we get NOTHING for it and have to watch hundreds of spies. Send the UN to iran, a great place for America haters and Jew haters to spend time.
8. WikiLeaks, Israel, Iran
Paul Thomas ,   Chicago, USA   (11.29.10)
Not surprisingly there has been extensive coverage in the US about WikiLeaks and Bush/Obama Iran policy, even with Saudi Arabia chiming in to "get" Iran [NPR News, this morning, Nov. 29], and about the UN and alleged ties to Hamas and Hezbollah 'terrrorism.' (Wasn't Hezbollah founded n 1982 in direct response to Israel's invasion of Lebanon, and wasn't Hamas founded in the late 1980s as a religious social service agency with covert backing from Israel? It was an Israeli operation to try to divide the loyalty of the occupied population away from Arafat and the PLO.) But there has been zero coverage of Wikileaks and Israel, only about the PA and more alleged ties to 'terrorism.' (Hasn't Israel killed or maimed more than 100,000 Lebanese citizens in its 40 years of bombings, shellings, invasions and death squad operations? Didn't Israel kill 1,300 people, including children and the elderly, in its 2008-09 attack on Gaza? Did Israel use white phosphorus in Gaza?)) This is why the American people continue to be among the most poorly-informed and disinformed people on earth about the Middle East. Incidentally, the pro-Israel/US neocon right, expressed in talkback, has had the UN in its crosshairs ever since the Israeli massacre at Qana in Lebanon on April 18, 1996, that killed two young American children, two little girls from Michigan. They were at Qana with their families that year to celebrate Easter. UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali would not compromise the eyewitness report on the Israeli artillery attack on a designated UN safe area at Qana that had been filed by the UN commander on the scene, a Dutch colonel. Then Israel and its US lobby went to work, and the US government obediently cast an almost unheard of veto to terminate Secretary-General Boutros Ghali. talkbacks can be assured that Americans of conscience support WikiLeaks and the United Nations. Our $7.3 billion is well-spent. We are also mindful of the history: "We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it any employment in our own country...Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly. Let the owners of immovable property believe that they are cheating us, selling us things for more than they are worth. But we are not going to sell them anything back." ---Founder of modern Zionism, Theodor Herzel, writing about the Palestinians, 1895. Is Israel really a "tiny, heroic democracy that shares America's values?" Is Helen Thomas "anti-Semitic" because she dared to criticize Israel in a private comment? Paul Thomas

Birdi ,   Israel   (12.02.10)
This is just the beginning of the wiki leaks. Be patient, more is yet to come, I am sure.
10. Improved View of Political Figures
Lin ,   Vancouver, Canada   (12.14.10)
Thank you wikileaks! Thanks to you I have a better opinion of many politicians including Hilary Clinton. What a surprise! I also feel more optimistic about Middle East politics and see a potential for more peace treaties Thank You wikileaks in showing us that what the press dishes out to us is not always (lol) the real stuff. ... (I wonder why...). I think Assange should be nominated for Nobel Peace Prize instead of being crucified...
