Wikileaks releases 55 thousand cables from the U.S. embassies in Iran, Afghanistan, Israel, Russia, and Venezuela, among others. Through their official channels they asked for citizen participation in analyzing them. They also asked that they post their finds by sending them to @wikileaks on Twitter under the hashtag #wlfind. You can take a look at the cables yourself by visiting this link: http://wikileaks.org/tag/TU_0.html or http://www.cablegatesearch.net/search.php.
As a consequence of this release, Wikileak’s Californian DNS hoster, Dynadot, “has received a PATRIOT act production order for information on Julian Assange”, according to their website. It also mentioned that it had been complied and that “the production order seeks all available information on Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, for the US grand jury in Alexandria, Washington.”
