I don't trust Wikifeaks either. If they just released the info it would be different. They chose to always make a big drama out of it. They seemed more like a MSM news program looking for ratings than a freedom of info site looking for truth.
In this case, I would bet that one of their fruitloopy PETA Warrior type employees saw the documents and went batshit crazy to release the info.
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
