One way or another, we all leak.
Seasoned hacker and all 'round Aussie, Julian Assange, is not, contrary to mass beliefs and mass media coverage, a leaker.
Assange accepts and arranges publication of material from leakers. It can't ever be otherwise, since Assange has no access to anything of sensitivity or note. Unless he gets back into the hacking game, that's likely to continue to be the case. He's a dealer in second hand goods, the front guy for the equivalent of a pawn shop for chronic leakers.
What we know from the latest leaking is that president of France is short and a bit of a loose cannon, Russia is not a glowing example of democracy, Pakistan is a worry and everyone tip toes around China.
Oh, and the British royals are, well, dunderheads.
We have also had confirmed that diplomats do the equivalent of gossip for about 80% of their working day - not astonishing; that's the business they're in. They can't shut the fuck up and they spend a lot of time doing the equivalent of shooting-off group SMSs, which, as has been evidenced, results in an awful lot of "diplomatic cables" - squillions of the damned things.
The response to Hillary Clinton from one of her counterparts was along the lines of "don't worry about it, you should hear what we say about you" (indeed, she - and we - probably will), which is pretty much the most sensible and thoughtful comment to hit the public sphere so far.
Most of the cables published are not classified (albeit, Wikileaks is currently without a home, having been bumped by their host, for reasons they claim are not political, rather, the action was to protect their other users).
There are more cables to come, including a cache related to Australia, and an alleged big leak of something entirely non-specific, but 'lid blowing' in relation to 'big business'. Now the latter would be great fun, if we ever get to see it. The truly ugly mind of the rulers of the universe deserve to be smeared all over town.
