All Unredacted Wikileaks Made Public

Spiegel is reporting that ALL the US securitized cables acquired by Julian Assange’s Wikileaks are now available on the internet to the general public – and, of course to nations unfriendly to the United States – owing to a series of errors made by Assange and his cohorts.
Previously, Wikileaks had distributed select redacted cables to major news outlets, including The New York Times, which then made them available to the general public --  and, of course to nations unfriendly to the United States.
The most recent dump includes all UNREDACTED cables in Wikileak’s possession.
Spiegel comments:
"It is possible that intelligence agencies in a number of countries have already gained access to the data. 'Any autocratic security service worth its salt' would have already done so, former US Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs P.J. Crowley told news agency AP on Wednesday. Intelligence agencies that haven't already gotten their hands on the data "will have it in short order," he added.
"By Wednesday evening Crowley's prediction was confirmed. The 'Cablegate' cables are now completely public. For many people in totalitarian states this could prove life-threatening. For Wikileaks, OpenLeaks, Julian Assange, Daniel Domscheit-Berg and many 
"A chain of careless mistakes, coincidences, indiscretions and confusion now means that no potential whistleblower would feel comfortable turning to a leaking platform right now. They appear to be out of control."
