Norwegian Newspaper Challenges WikiLeaks Cable “Cartel” (And Creates Its Own)

Posted by John Rosenthal

In a major development that has been largely ignored or misrepresented in the American media, the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten has obtained access to the full stash of over 250,000 classified American diplomatic cables previously obtained by WikiLeaks. The paper has been posting a steady stream of cables to its own website independently of the self-styled “whistleblower organization” and the latter’s chosen “media partners.”

But while celebrating its breaking of the WikiLeaks “cartel,” as I discovered when I contacted the paper, Aftenposten now appears to be creating its own rival cartel. For the details and a link to the Aftenposten cables, see my new article at the website of The Weekly Standard here.
