29th November 2010: Cablegate

Germany’s Der Spiegel has launched a series on Wikileaks’ release of 250,000 US diplomatic cables, dubbled ‘cablegate’.

Wikileaks reveals a darkly realist view of the world, likened to a “foreign policy meltdown“.

The New York Times has articles on the ‘decision to publish’ and a selection of diplomatic documents as part of its State’s Secret series.

This will keep colleagues at the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations busy for months.
