The Asahi Shimbun published an editorial about the WikiLeaks files related to Japan. The newspaper claimed they had obtained about 7,000 diplomatic cables relating to the diplomacy between Japan and America. According to the Asahi Shimbun, the content of those documents was “shocking.” Unfortunately, thus far, the Asahi Shimbun has said little about what is in those documents.
Perhaps those documents are “shocking” because they mention what my government has been doing to me. Perhaps the Asahi Shimbun wrote this editorial in an effort to frighten America into believing that it may soon reveal the truth. On the other hand, maybe I’m not mentioned in the cables.
“Since they reflect U.S. interpretations of what actually happened, the documents may be silent about things the U.S. administration might find inconvenient,” said the Asahi Shimbun.
