 The Kissinger Cables are consisted of more than 1.3 million full diplomatic cables and 320,000 originally classified records, WikiLeaks claims. The collection also includes 205,901 records relating to former US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger (hence the name).

All in all, the Kissinger Cables contain around 700 million words, which makes it five times as large as Cablegate – WikiLeaks’ release of more than 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables in November 2010.

According to WikiLeaks, most of these records were reviewed by the U.S. Department of State‘s 25-year declassification process, but their declassification is “running 12 years late.”

The release is a part of WikiLeaks’ launch of the “WikiLeaks Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD),” a searchable collection of U.S. “confidential or formerly confidential” diplomatic communications.

WikiLeaks claims it now holds 2 million records consisted of around 1 billion words.
