Talk:United States diplomatic cables leak

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Not sure how to do this, but here's the story on how the cables got redacted. I told people how to do it. That paragraph describing it on the main page is speculative gibberish. https://web.archive.org/web/20140816145138/http://nigelparry.com/news/guardian-david-leigh-cablegate.shtml

This is good too: https://unspecified.wordpress.com/2011/09/03/wikileaks-password-leak-faq/

For the record, the latter parts of this are also speculative nonsense: http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/leak-at-wikileaks-a-dispatch-disaster-in-six-acts-a-783778.html

Here's Greenwald's article from the time correctly noting the source/process of the redaction: http://www.salon.com/2011/09/02/wikileaks_28/

Quotebox translation[edit]

The translation in the green quotebox is inaccurate. Any particular reason for that? ATBWikirictor (talk) 15:29, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

  • "Denn der Freitag hat eine Datei, die auch unredigierte US-Botschaftsdepeschen enthält. [...] Die Datei mit dem Namen "cables.csv" ist 1,73 Gigabyte groß. [...] Das Passwort zu dieser Datei liegt offen zutage und ist für Kenner der Materie zu identifizieren."
  • "The Freitag newspaper is in possession of a file which contains unedited US diplomatic cables. The file named "cables.csv" has a size of 1.73 GB. The file's password is plain to see and easily identifiable by the insider."
