(Newser) – WikiLeaks has released 2,628 diplomatic cables that came from the US State Department, or a meager 1% of the 251,287 in its possession, despite Julian Assange's repeated assurances to speed their release. But what's unclear, notes the AP, is whether the most salacious revelations have already been released, or if WikiLeaks and its so-called media partners have had a chance to go through the enormous vault. Regardless, Assange says he's getting new leaks all the time.
