Tin foil hattery

Gawker have an interesting article about this ongoing Pentagon-Wikileaks stramash - seems like Wired.com could've protected the now arrested Manning but decided against it (which isn't very nice) and now they're being all coy about releasing the log of their chat.

BoingBoing steps up to the plate though and releases a less edited version & my fav quote is ~ asked about the content of the cables, Manning replies....

"crazy, almost criminal political backdealings... the non-PR-versions of world events and crises... uhm... all kinds of stuff like everything from the buildup to the Iraq War during Powell, to what the actual content of "aid packages" is..."

So is all this talk of cables all a smokescreen so the Pentagon can trample on Wikileaks? or is there really a bumper crop of shit about to hit the fan ? I hope the latter.
