WikiLeaks has released the dates, sources and tags of more than 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables. The website says it will release the complete text of all the cables, but it started with just about 200.
You can browse the text of the released cables on the WikiLeaks "Cablegate" website.
You can use the app below created by CBC News to search the dates and sources of all the cables. You can find cables within a certain date range, or originating from a particular embassy or consulate. Since WikiLeaks has only released the full text of a handful of the cables so far, search results will only show basic information about the cable, such as the tags and where it originated. CBCNews.ca has created a separate search for the full text of released cables that mention Canada.
The data also includes tags, which are codes that indicate topics discussed in the cable. Most often, each cable has more than one tag. The Guardian newspaper has put a partial glossary of the codes on Google Docs.
