More importantly - these were diplomatic cables from the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Why were they discussing the rape of Saudi citizens on Saudi soil? What little can be gleaned regarding the context of this information suggests that it was entirely domestic in nature, and therefore its inclusion in diplomatic cables is wildly inappropriate.
Regarding the latter, I suspect it is because a particular US political party is seeking to discredit them.
Forget advertisers, this is a boon for academic political science and sociology research. Facebook has such massive data sets that there could be dozens or hundreds of unknown correlates of political preference, behavior, and decision making. Not to mention responses to outcomes and conditions.
I can't think of any University that wouldn't want to get its hands on this data. I hope Facebook makes it available to academia.
And I love it!
