On November 28th of last year, WikiLeaks began releasing their massive cache of classified correspondence cables to and from US diplomats around the world, an unprecedented publication of secret documents that continues to this day. The Nation’s Greg Mitchell has been covering Cablegate since the beginning, providing around-the-clock updates on the cables and the global diplomatic fallout — and wide range of opinion — on his Media Fix blog.
He has also collected and analyzed key lessons of the leaks, going back to last April, including the Iraq and Afghanistan "war logs," in his new book, The Age of WikiLeaks, available in print and electronic editions.
Today, March 7, marks the 100th day since Mitchell began live-blogging the leaks, and his regular updates have covered everything from the disturbing secrets governments have been hiding from their citizens to the ways WikiLeaks has changed how we think about information freedom. Here are the most important revelations, events and changes in our media and political landscape that have resulted from the cables.
