Wikileaks, for the most part, reveals mundane stories and information supplied by diplomats in the field. A high percent of what the media cites as controversial was known by anyone following world events. However, there is now documentation that America lied to its allies while in the process of sending captured insurgents to get a dose of old fashioned torture in some nice Muslim nation.

Members of the Swedish secret service dressed as airport employees and boarded the planes where they discovered prisoners on board. After several protests, the US in 2006 finally halted this illegal activity. Of course, to Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld, there was nothing wrong with a little tortured, particularly if it occurred in some distant land and was not done by Americans.
