WikiLeaks released more than 250,000 US embassy and consulate cables to The New York Times and other media. They include candid views of world leaders, foreign government negotiations and assessments of nuclear and terrorist threats. This could prove vastly more damaging to US interests and security than the tactical reports leaked earlier this year. State Department reports often describe long-standing issues of leadership, political conditions, and highly privileged conversations. While most information will have little value, the volume is so large that it will certainly reveal thousands of highly insightful and embarrassingly confidential assessments.

Reprieve for Taliban Members

Afghan United Nations Ambassador Zahir Tanin recently asked the UN Security Council to remove 10 Taliban members from the list of individuals in the Taliban and al Qaida subject to UN sanctions. He added that reconciliation and reintegration of former combatants is crucial for lasting peace and security in Afghanistan. Speaking at an open U.N. Security Council meeting, Tanin asked the sanctions committee to consider removing other names submitted by Afghan President Karzai's government. This is a significant effort to create an atmosphere favorable to talks with the Taliban. It might not work, but it is noteworthy.

Kim Jong-un Positions for Power

According to defector sources, North Korean Authorities have begun a purge of corrupt senior officials on the orders of the heir apparent, Kim Jung-un. The crimes under investigation include smuggling and allowing people to flee the country. This is one of the ways a new team makes room for its own people. In the first years of his tenure, Kim Jong-il supported constant purges of party and military officials who were opposed to reigning family succession in an otherwise communist state, and survived several assassination attempts and mutinies. The ensuing tyranny was harsh and long lasting. The next successor's advisors are likewise taking no chances with opposition.
