    Default Washington warns Ottawa over impending WikiLeaks release

    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2010/...ks-ottawa.html

    The U.S. government has notified Ottawa that the WikiLeaks website is preparing to release sensitive U.S. diplomatic files that could damage U.S. relations with allies around the world.

    U.S. officials say the documents may contain accounts of compromising conversations with political dissidents and friendly politicians and could result in the expulsion of U.S. diplomats from foreign postings.

    A Foreign Affairs spokeswoman said the U.S. ambassador to Canada, David Jacobson, has phoned Minister of Foreign Affairs Lawrence Cannon to inform him of the matter.

    Melissa Lantsman said the Canadian Embassy in Washington is "currently engaging" with the U.S. State Department on the matter.

    A State Department spokesman said Wednesday the release of confidential communications about foreign governments probably will erode trust in the United States as a diplomatic partner.

    U.S. diplomatic outposts around the world have begun notifying other governments that WikiLeaks may release the documents in the next few days.
    Wonder what's in there that made them notify the Canadian government this time.

    Either they were screwing Canada and know they're about to be caught, or Canada was in on screwing another country with them I guess...

    One possible scenario is that Canada might be exposed for having foreign operatives. CSIS has always been claimed to be a non-intrusive intelligence agency that doesn’t conduct foreign espionage missions.

    Anther one would be the potential physical evidence that the USA might be exposed for heavily rigging the market in their favor during the recession.

    I wonder how governments plan on handling this stuff, you would think at the rate of digital intrusion into government computers that governments would seriously consider starting to store everything offline and through transporting files on USB drives.

    I can see it being a lot of sensitive shit about how the US is working under the table against Canadian interests. Too bad we'll bend over and not do shit about it.

    It's pretty impossible to keep a major secret these days. You're better off just not being shady.

    A few generations ago, they could control most of the media, and you had to physically move information or copy documents, and stuff spread by word of mouth. Now all it takes is some crazy white-haired Australian dude, and the world's top intelligence agencies can't do much besides beg and plead.

    Aside from their desperation move of getting Sweden to issue a warrant for a bogus rape charge at the last minute...

    Heh, was trying to figure out a way to include aliens in this, and I have!

    Ok, not really but I bet it has something to do with the U.S influencing votes abroad. I have no idea where that idea came from though.

    Whatever it is though I'm sure it will be interesting.

    ^Reptilian space Jews control the US government and have been secretly putting their Jewish reptile brothers into power all this time. ZenOps style: Rob Anders is the ring leader in Canada.

    I think the difference here is they usually leak document that are related to internal politics that the government is already aware of, with this they are leaking documents that are related to foreign governments who potentially have no idea this is occurring.

    ^It's like Nusc forgot his password.

    Anyways, the US, Canada et al are being held to a higher ethical standard than the countries we have to deal with. I'd like to see liked governmental chats between countries in the eastern part of the globe. Come on, pussy, DO IT.

    Or arrange an "accident".

    I'm somewhat puzzled as to why that hasn't happened yet.

    i would say it's the other way around and that the media controls politics.

    Tinfoil hat on:

    I bet it has to do with the Quebecios. Bush hated the French more than Rob Anders, and was worried that they were forming an alliance with middle eastern intrests/religious groups.

    There were a solid two years there where the US was whispering that Canada was "terrorist", I believe the words were "Canadian terrorist haven".

    Also might be leaked documents on how they were planning to break the UN treaty and put mines on the border if we legalized marijuana. Ok maybe not that far, but definitely a militarized border.

    But now that possible President Palin has said "Our North Korea allies" and California was inches away from legalization - Well I can pretty much say that the US are confirmed terrorists.

    But don't quote me on that.

    Interesting theory. Rob Anders is a reptilian.

    He must have been gene therapy spinal spliced with an inferior reptilian gene - because he needs to wear sunscreen at ridiculously high levels to mask the green skin colour.

    But I requested he be spliced with an eggplant

    I went with the cuttlefish splice, which makes me like the flavour of tomatofish.

    I was sleeping, then my phone started to make noise because I had twitter linked up to my phone with WiKiLeaks as the only feed, so I got excited, but it was nothing and I'm tired.

    Yah it won't open up for me. Server probably got flooded by people and/or from the slightly tinfoil angle, government knocked it offline.

    Not a flood. Someone pulled the plug. They do have a backup plan though, it's coming out one way or another.
