1. I put cables online as a resource for all. I don’t own the #thaistory cables, I am just the last link in a chain of people who got them from secret US servers to the public domain. Everyone should feel free to repost #thaistory cables on your own sites, discuss them, analyse them, etc. They are an open resource.
2. Those in Thailand for whom commenting on some #thaistory cables is highly dangerous will still find many others that are safe to discuss. I would urge everyone to use blogs and social media to discuss & share the #thaistory cables. They can greatly aid our knowledge of Thailand. If Thai (and most international) media want to pretend #thaistory cables don’t exist, it’s up to us in the wired world to show otherwise. If the mainstream media fails in its duty to report #thaistory cables, it is a great opportunity for blogs and social media to do the job. So please treat #thaistory cables as an open shared resource. All I ask is that you’re careful & responsible. Over to you. Best wishes.
