The newest WikiLeaks release comprises 251,287 cables from more than 250 United States embassies around the world, including thousands classified "Secret." With historical cables dating back to the 1960s, the trove is seven times the size of "The Iraq War Logs," making it the world's largest classified information release. The New York Times, Der Spiegel, El País, the Guardian, and Le Monde had early access to the logs. According to their analysis of the myriad issues discussed in the cables, these five are among the most striking revelations.
Pakistan and India test ballistic missiles to demonstrate military might. But these tests have become separate from politics, in which both countries appear to be developing closer ties.
Coup rumors come at a time of great public dissatisfaction with Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari and growing disenchantment among the military with the US alliance.
That Obama expressed 'condolences' in a phone call to Pakistan President Zardari, was a crucial move for US-Pakistan relations, but it doesn't mean business will be back to normal, say analysts.
If Secretary of State Clinton asks Pakistan to carry out targeted operations against the Haqqani network on her visit this week, she is likely to be met with a frosty response, say analysts.
