|WikiLeaks and the Mexican Congress|

I would like to approach the subject under two aspects.
The first one which nobody seems to talk about is US President B. Obama: Why WikiLeaks? Why now? One has to recall that an internet incursion has been a relatively common topic in the last four / five years. One knows that “leaks” have been present all over and surprisingly in the last few days “everything” comes up to surface.
So the question is: why now? Or probably the question should be re paraphrased: Why did it happen under President Obama’s term? For what has come up to light so far, many of these documents had already leaked and were available under President G. W. Bush: So, why did WikiLeaks waited to publish them until the presidential term of B: Obama? It seems quite obvious that the whole operation is turned against President B. Obama. Very many of the problems so far published, happened “before” Obama, i.e. during the two Bushes respective administrations.
Why if the medical (let’s call it “problem”) started even before G.W. Bush, why, tell us why they let it explode in the middle of Mr. B. Obama’s term? Why is the current American President flooded with problems he did not create and that his predecessors were not able to solve? Why is he finally responsible for all of it? Why today? Afghanistan also was before him. Iraq was before him. Guantánamo was before him: And now this? This is not a support note for President Obama. This is political analysis and the way in which public opinion (with 2012 in sight) is manipulated. Take a look without any preferences and you will see that Mr. Obama is indirectly/directly blamed, without a proper “accusation” of what is happening today in the US.
The second aspect that I want to develop is linked with two Mexican Congressmen: Ms. Lorena Corona and Mr. Javier Corral. During my interview as a candidate for a post at the Mexican Federal Electoral Institute, they questioned the possibility to have “Internet regulated”: Textually. Let this article and WikiLeaks answer them to their preoccupations.
Secondly in the very same context of WikiLeaks, why is it that some of the problems evoked under what has been published in WikiLeaks that concern Mexico, why there is not a “comment”, “complaint”, “disagreement” with respect to published information? Why has nobody made a single comment? From what I have seen in the press, there is a “big concern” in the US with respect to this. But no comment from the political class with respect to Mexico’s issues: why?
