The United States has developed into a society of state secrets, and i won't deny that there is a past as long as mankind where governments and hierarchy's depended upon secret knowledge to maintain their power and position.

The New York Times, as usual, has breaking coverage of the now-public availability of this goldmine of US diplomatic cables.
Also, watch Cryptome for linked commentary and reviews.
