Wikileaks continue to fight the good fight despite enormous obstacles, as it now reveals the true face of the "private" intelligence firm "Stratfor".

A huge controversy has been going around on who is responsible for the release of the unredacted version of more than 250,000 diplomatic cables. Guardian has claimed that it was Wikileaks and Julain Assange's “chaotic mistakes” and “poor security” that was responsible for the files becoming public. Wikileaks has sqarely blamed Guardian for the leak of a password that allowed the unredacted version of the cables to be accessed.

The article published in The Hindu (28 March 2011) on the Wikileaks cables focusing on the landmark Indo-US Agreement of June 2005 on a “New Framework for US-India Defence Relationship” as part of a wider strategic engagement between India and the US has received less attention than it deserves.

Newsclick Analyst D.Raghunandan comments on the Wikileaks' cables on the Indo-US Defence Framework Agreement, accessed by The Hindu newspaper. He says there is nothing surprising about the content of the cables, which clearly suggest how the US is trying to get India into a closer strategic and defence partnership, notwithstanding pressures from the Indian military and civilian bureaucracies to resist a total bandwagoning.

Two events have happened almost at the same time. The decision to hang Tariq Aziz, the former Foreign Minister of Iraq for being a party to Saddam's crimes, the other Wikileaks (http://wikileaks.org/) treasure trove of documents that shows the complicity of US officials and military in crimes committed against civilians in Iraq.

On 26 July, Wikileaks released thousands of secret US military files on the war in Afghanistan. Cover-ups, a secret assassination unit and the killing of civilians are documented. In file after file, the brutalities echo the colonial past. From Malaya and Vietnam to Bloody Sunday and Basra, little has changed. The difference is that today there is an extraordinary way of knowing how faraway societies are routinely ravaged in our name.
