All those who advocate truth, justice and true freedom must stand fully behind the public's right to disseminate factual information concerning the activities of government officials, and strenuously oppose any efforts by any government to act in secrecy or inhibit in any way the public right to know. At the same time however, a critical approach to the contents of any and all leaked documents is essential.
The level of US government pathology revealed in the many of the documents is extraordinary, and while such details may not come as a surprise to many who have been watching carefully over the past 10 years, to have this pathology officially confirmed leaves no further wiggle room. The US government is a rogue and fascist entity that seeks to dominate the entire world by force in pursuance of its unbridled greed. Lies, manipulation, bribery, treachery and treason are just a few of the crimes of which both the Bush and Obama administrations are guilty. Beside them in the dock sits most of the Western mainstream media which was complicit in covering up the details revealed by the documents and, even now, still seeks to either censor or capitalize on them to push the Neocon's Imperial agenda.
In this respect, we must clearly recognise that, along with details that expose US government pathology, there is a significant amount of US government lies and propaganda in the documents, primarily pertaining to Iran and the alleged threat it poses to the world. This is, of course, to be expected when dealing with diplomatic cables from US embassies given that they are generally staffed (in part) by CIA agents tasked with finding facts to 'fix' around any given policy. Indeed, the cables of which we speak can be seen as the 'raw data' that became the barrage of US mainstream media headlines that have asserted the lie that Iran and its nuclear ambitions pose a threat to the world. You are seeing that same lie again, recorded in its original format in the Wikileaks documents.

In a recorded interview with the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, and Le Nouvel Observateur, on Jan. 29, 2007, Chirac said about Iran's alleged bomb:
"Where will it drop it, this bomb? On Israel?" Chirac asked. "It would not have gone 200 meters into the atmosphere before Tehran would be razed [by any number of Israel's 400 nuclear weapons]." Thus, Iran's possession of a nuclear bomb would not be "very dangerous."That is not to say that a nuclear Iran would not pose a threat to the US and Israel and a few corrupt US client states in the Middle East. It certainly would, just not a threat to the American or any other people other than the megalomaniacs in Washington. The acquisition of nuclear weapons by formerly non-nuclear nations has, you see, the uncanny effect of making the nuclear bullies think twice before issuing threats and forcing them to resort to more covert and less effective means of control and intimidation. If Iran were to manufacture its own nuclear weapons, Israel would no longer be in a position to act with impunity against the enemies it has made of most of its Arab and Muslim neighbors. Likewise, the US would no longer be able to so easily subdue the entire region through the threat of overwhelming force.
In summation: If you accept the veracity of the documents that reveal the duplicitous manner in which the US government has sought to dominate the world, you can safely assume that ANY documents that appear to bolster US imperial designs are also lies. Just as you are duty bound to support the truth in the documents, you are also duty and conscience-bound to proclaim and denounce the lies.
