WikiLeaks have chosen today to release their largest ever unleashing of formerly confidential information, known as the "Kissinger Cables". These cables include over 1.7 million diplomatic records spanning 1973-1976, where 205,901 are connected to controversial US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger.

The release has an eye-busting 700 million words, and contains something WikiLeaks describes as "significant revelations about US involvements with fascist dictatorships, particularly in Latin America, under Franco's Spain (including about the Spanish royal family) and in Greece under the regime of the Colonels."

These files should be an interesting read for those involved in the various industries, so hopefully we see some juicy content from them in the coming hours, days and weeks.
