—Edward J. Snowden, July 2015
“A deep dive into what the cables reveal about America’s dealings with a variety of states. It will be left to other books to argue whether WikiLeaks is right or wrong in their mission and approach. This one gives solid context to the cables themselves, explaining what they mean to the wider world.”
“Takes on a huge amount of data and delivers a thorough introduction to the narratives of US policy that the cables reveal [and] … makes the information in the cables accessible to a wide audience of readers who may not otherwise have the time or background knowledge to search through the data themselves.”
“Provides accessible insight into nearly every major news topic of today.”
—Portland Press Herald

—Bob Gates, US Secretary of Defense, 2010
“The guy ought to be ... and I’m not for the death penalty, so if I’m not for the death penalty, there’s only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch.”
—Bob Beckel, Fox News
“The whole weighty book is a missile aimed at breaking the plate glass of US diplomacy and revealing its motivations.”
—Sydney Morning Herald

Impressive, seriously impressive investigatory journalism.
It is excellent, awesome work. It’s important insight with revealing considerations that a "MATURE & CONSCIENTIOUS" America needs to have access to & be conscientious of.
Excellent journalism, high quality and level education for an INFORMED CITIZENRY.
REGARDING THE CONTENT OF THE WORK:
Reserve comment & opinion, however generally...
It seems an opportunity for redemption at the Global scale.
& a re-recognition not only of the world’s conscience but of the People of America's Collective Conscience of America re-emphasized on the map and part of the Global Community.
Exposing war crimes is not a crime. It is necessary to true democracy and to and real "freedom" for people.
