* 9,005 documents are from the first two months of 2010

Apart from Der Spiegel, The New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde and El País have had access to the files in advance.

According to Der Spiegel, just over half of the cables are not subject to classification, 40.5 percent are classified as “confidential” and only 6 percent or 15,652 dispatches as “secret.”

About 2.5 million U.S. employees have access to SIPRNET material, from where these cables apparently reached Wikileaks.
