From the wikileaks archive

This title on the NY Times about one of the wikileaked documents: "Cables Discuss Vast Hacking by a China That Fears the Web".

This post is a continuation of the one immediately before: Of course China fears the web. Open access to information is lubrication to the workings of democracies; it is poison to the workings of autocracies. This is why Wikileaks is intrinsically a force for good, even if we don't have a particularly fond view of it at this moment.
