WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has circulated across the internet an encrypted “poison pill” cache of uncensored documents suspected to include files on BP and Guantanamo Bay. One of the files identified this weekend by The (London) Sunday Times — called the “insurance” file — has been downloaded from the WikiLeaks website by tens of thousands of supporters, from America to Australia. Assange warns that any government that tries to curtail his activities risks triggering a new deluge of state and commercial secrets.

The cables and the damage done For people who value freedom and truth, what's not to applaud about WikiLeaks? Certainly in Australia, the cablegate saga – and its local offshoot – has unlocked a tide of libertarian righteousness. Throughout the media and much of civil society, there's a thrill of surprise at the unsaintly ways and words of diplomacy, a frisson of satisfaction at seeing the powerful humbled and exposed, and a current of outrage on behalf of Julian Assange.
Having just published Stephen Collins' reply to Rory's post, I'm going to pile on and offer my own critique. But first let me point out that we have already received a number of emails from the bureaucracy and diplomatic community in support of Rory's position. Unfortunately, these were marked 'not for publication', so I want to encourage those readers in Canberra who feel constrained by saying that we are prepared to put aside this site's usual reluctance to publish anonymous comment. So, to business, and I want to start by agreeing with Stephen Collins' introduction, and to put the case more explicitly: I think Rory is showing status quo bias. He is absolutely right to say that 'most of the world's problems demand cooperative responses', and that a certain level of secrecy is required to make this workable. But what level, exactly?

gary's choices - WikiLeaks: America the indispensable
Les diplomates américains gênés dans leur travail par WikiLeaks, actualité Monde : Le Point Depuis une semaine, des diplomates américains en poste à l'étranger ont du mal à effectuer leur travail, victimes temporaires des révélations issues des notes du département d'État obtenues par WikiLeaks. Le déluge de télégrammes américains analysés et publiés par cinq journaux a eu pour effet immédiat de rafraîchir les relations entre les ambassades américaines et leurs contacts, témoignent des diplomates, encore en poste ou retirés des affaires. "À court terme, nous sommes presque en cessation d'activité", confirme un diplomate de haut rang sous le couvert de l'anonymat. "En toute honnêteté, personne ne veut nous parler", ajoute-t-il.

Military Bans Disks, Threatens Courts-Martial to Stop New Leaks | Danger Room It’s too late to stop WikiLeaks from publishing thousands more classified documents, nabbed from the Pentagon’s secret network. But the U.S. military is telling its troops to stop using CDs, DVDs, thumb drives and every other form of removable media — or risk a court martial. Maj. Gen. Richard Webber, commander of Air Force Network Operations, issued the Dec. 3 “Cyber Control Order” — obtained by Danger Room — which directs airmen to “immediately cease use of removable media on all systems, servers, and stand alone machines residing on SIPRNET,” the Defense Department’s secret network.

7 December 2010Last updated at 14:51 ET By Jane Wakefield Technology reporter Julian Assange has now been arrested For rolling news outlets Wikileaks has been a dream come true with thousands of US embassy cables dribbling out titbits of sensitive information and providing new headlines on a daily and even hourly basis. But for the US government, the revelations are less welcome. The site has become its bete noire and after making its displeasure clear, US firms that have dealings with it have been quick to turn their backs. The troubles began for Wikileaks when Amazon which hosted its servers in the US, withdrew services saying the site was breaking its terms and conditions. Wikileaks' struggle to stay online
