The latest batch of official US documents released by wikileaks caused a tremendous storm with two immediate reactions. The first was a nearly hour by hour revelation as to what was in this batch as reporters combed through the piles of information looking for newsworthy (or simply salacious) details. The second reaction came as a character assassination (and call for a bloody assassination) of Julian Assange as a “terrorist”.
The first wave of revelation is understandable, but neither of these reactions tells us much about what is really happening here. That requires time.
