I know it's all groovy and exciting to think of this whole story as a conspiracy led by the US intelligence agencies. But why don't you document yourself before taking sides?
The guy *sold* most of these cables to the newspapers and other media (including stuff that sent OTHER people to prison). Just the copy he sold to Al-Jazeera brought in $1.3 million. How much do you think the New-York Times or Guardian paid? While he's promoting "information without border", releasing private documents that endangered the lives of informants (and selling them to countless news organizations), he's making his employees sign NDA that include a clause saying they'll get sued for millions if they release information about what is going on inside WikiLeaks.
That guy is a total fraud, a self-centered megalomaniac that consistently threw his allies and collaborators under the bus. I can tell you the next chapter in his story. As it happened with previous people who helped him, he will turn against the Ecuadorian ambassy (or country as a whole) when they stop treating him like royalty (the pig doesn't even pick after himself being too busy being a rockstar), and he will come out with outrageous accusations that probably involve the Ecuadorian ambassador having his mind infected by American propaganda and by Scotland Yard or some other ludicrous bullshit. And yet again idiots who have no clue what a fucking fraud he is will defend him on message boards and promotes the lies and bullshit that he built his fortune on.
I know it's hard to admit that your emperor has no clothes but really, move on.
