    As more and more of these cables are released, and lively debates erupt over what is said in them (as here with Sicko) it is clear that they do need to be taken with a grain of salt.

    If something comes out someone agrees with, they wave it truiumphantly.  If they disagree, as Moore does here, then the cables are inaccurate.

    That means going back to what people have always done.  Take what's in them for what its worth.  Then verify if you can with other sources.

    Bear in mind some of these things, such as the musings on the state of mind of Minister X or what is going on in some opaque foreign bureacracy like China's, are going to remain best guesses anyway.
