Today I wanted to add my personal opinion to yesterdays blog article, when I could not find the report with tracking number
20090620123538SME on the online query interface of wikileaks. Yesterday I analyzed a CSV file called „iraq-war-diary-redacted.csv“, which I downloaded from the Pirate Bay (seems to be down right now).
Here is the Magnet Link
On the other hand the wikileaks online query interface revealed the following report, which I could
not („grep“ does not work with multiline entries) find in the downloaded 355MB file (
M5SUM 797f4dc26fd6e4792e33b33701c9246c) as well:

Finally I could find the first report, though I warn you about the date range interval. If you enter „Between 2009-06-19 and 2009-06-20“, you won’t get reports dated 2009-06-20. Be aware!
