Polish Foreign Ministry 'prepared' for new Wikileaks material

US diplomats have informed that the confidential documents that are to be released online may include materials concerning negotiations with Poland. They may predominantly concern bilateral talks on the deployment of the anti-missile shield in Poland, claims spokesperson for the Polish Foreign Ministry, Marcin Bosacki.

thenews.pl/international/artykul144394_poland-to-become-russia-ambassador-to-eu.html

Last time Wikileaks revealed Polish special services ( GROM ) activity in afganistan and Iraq and that the Polish intelligence had warned of plans of an attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul in 2008. But the Indian ignored them and On 7 July 2008, a car bomb loaded with explosives killed 58 people at the embassy, including a number of Indian diplomats. New Delhi blamed the attack on Pakistan special services.

So what do you think they will reveal this time more then the deployment of the anti-missile shield in Poland?

Would be fun to find out what the American goverment thinks about the Poles. Since they seems to have very fun opinions about other countries and their leaders. They called the Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin an "alpha-dog," and the Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai is "driven by paranoia" and they describe German Chancellor Angela Merkel as one who "avoids risk and is rarely creative."

But are those negative comments or just unbiased observations? They don't sound too bad.

sounds a little worse...

Westerwelle gets surely kicked at but yeah...it's quite correct. I can't stand the guy either!

Sarkozy: "King without clothes" ;)

But they are in love with Guttenberg as it seems...only good comments....

Obviously some are getting cold feet. Hillary at once informed all possible that sth might come out that a few would not like.

He was and is disgusting. Met him personally while being not so "fancy".

Well, it's true about Medvedev. Any goat herder in one of the 'stans' knows this.

Anyway, these are "leaks" right? Made, by God knows who? Some clown who didn't get promoted in the CIA or something? A diplomat who was questioned to strongly on something. Please..

Even then they're often just somebody's observation.. which can differ from person to person.

I sincerely hope Assange likes being harassed and having his coffee maker bugged for the rest of his life (and not just by the US).. it will probably get trying as he gets older.

The United States apparently used bargaining to move prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp to other countries. In one case, if Slovenia did not take one of the prisoners, President Obama would not agree to meet with Slovenian officials. Other offers include economic incentives or even a visit from President Obama.

Ow my god!!! Seriously what the hell is America doing?

Is anyone actually surprised?

On the other hand - I've been reading through the sites, and although there's plenty of insults, is there really anything that juicy here? Childish behaviour, yes - but nothing major.

Bawww .. Hawww. Welcome to planet Earth, dude. Besides, Gitmo is Bush's idiotic idea.

Funny how these "leaks" never have anything nice to say about anyone, offer some kind of balance. They're nothing but dressed up tabloids meant to look official at the end of the day.

I must agree...some open and honest talk here...contrary to the usual diplomatic niceties.

Abit funny and refreshing I must say...but will surely ruffle some feathers with the vain ones!

Maybe because America don't have anything nice to say?

The mafia got plenty ways of doing business. And the Slovenia thingy is not far away from that in a legal way but still an absurd way.

Anyway it was a very childish move by the Americans to refuse to meet with Slovenian officials if the Slovenians would't accept Americas offer.

Allegedly.. but yes it would be a very childish move. Childish .. not diabolical.. and presidents have scheduling conflicts. Slovenia is not exactly France or GB.

Basically what I take out of it.. Not much of this sh.t is a revelation. "Israel wanted to attack Iran". Oh really.. thank you for illuminating that for us, wikileaks. WTF.. everybody knew that!

It's just an ugly side of politics. All countries have ugliness in their politics. It doesn't appeal to us because we aren't politicians. It's stuff they do to get things done.

The Wikileaks affair is another proof that the net should not be accorded privileged status but treated like every other ledia. If it threatens people's or nations' security, a portal should be shut down and the web operator duly prosecuted. The same goes for libel or character assissination. A n ewspaper or TV station could not get away with the calumny swirling around the web. Too many people want to tippy-toe round the sacrosanct Internet, treating it like some sacred cow!

Well, that's not a surprise that you're against freedom of information :) Fits right in with your communist attitude, doesn't it? I mean - God forbid the people having access to information! They should only have the right to know what their leaders think they should be allowed to know!

And - you claim to be Polish? Any self respecting Pole would be all for information being released, especially where it concerns Poland.

Yes indeed. But America choose the role as the world leaders. And what signal do they send to the rest of the world if they can't follow the rules that they created?

Killing civillians and destroying other countries and even threaten their own allies etc etc... Where is the logic?

Are you serious?

The job of the media is not to protect power from embarrassment. If American spies are breaking United Nations rules by seeking the DNA biometrics of the UN director general, he is entitled to hear of it. British voters should know what Afghan leaders thought of British troops. American (and British) taxpayers might question, too, how most of the billions of dollars going in aid to Afghanistan simply exits the country at Kabul airport.[Simon Jenkins, guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/nov/28/us-embassy-cables-wikileaks]

The old 'people have a right to know' slogan used by the Murdochs and other smut, sensation and gossipmongers is both hypocritical and cynical. How is this information going to benefit the bus driver in Leeds or the Kansas City school teacher? Besides, do you naively believe the news and gossip pedlars are truly interested in anyone's rights? They are out only after their own selfish interests, be it profits, influence, publicity or poltical power.

If a nation's security is in jeopardy, then extreme measures are warranted and justified. In war, many civil rights get suspended. We are engaged in a world-wide war on terrorism whether anyone likes it or not.

Something tells me that the terrorists ain't even near the American numbers.

They will partially know the same thing as the people that we have represented to make decisions for us. Those people should be carrying out OUR WILL after all. "We" can't make an informed decision unless we know all the facts. The people that want to be ruled by elites with privy to information...well, that sounds like the old boss here in Poland...

Something tells me you don't know what you're talking about. Look at how many people have been shot in cold blood, not by accident. I think you would change your opinion fairly quickly.

Sounds very like it, doesn't it?

Must admit, given that Poles (and Polonius too, if I'm not mistaken) have been screaming for full disclosure into Smolensk - why would any of them support keeping information confidential? Of course, a quick read of what's been released so far says only one thing - that it's interesting, but nothing particularly dreadful. The US obsession with data - what's new?

Though collecting biometric data of officials is something that they would've been proud of in East Germany, I guess :)

I know that i might sound very anti-american but seriously plenty of civillians died by american hands.

I know it's very hard to swallow for some people. But the fact still remain.

There will be more in the comming days.
