Here's what Hillary Clinton stated in January 2010 (during Google-China spat):
'Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined in today. In a wide-ranging speech in Washington, Mrs Clinton said the internet had been a "source of tremendous progress" in China but that any country which restricted free access to information risked "walling themselves off from the progress of the next century" [BBC News].'
However the Wikileaks is different. We all know it as Drucker knew it. It has been trying to take us back to the middle-century before the printing presses challenged the authorities of the Church. And Hillary would not allow that to happen as she wants Internet to take us to the 'progress of the next century' only
Latest cable leaked from the Wikileaks showed that the U.S. Government has realized that they have made a mess in which Wikileaks is getting censored in the U.S. In an emergency cable that directly connects the White House with Hu Jintao, sent from The White House to Beijing, Beijing has been asked to provide its Great Fire Wall of Internet to the U.S.
'It's an S.O.S' - the leaked cable said.
Further leaked cables from Beijing to China in Wikileaks show that Beijing is skeptical as Beijing fears, that the increased trade deficit that this additional export to the U.S., would eventually add further pressure on China to allow faster appreciation of its currency, the yuan. No decision on this has yet been taken, as per latest Wikileaks from the U.S. embassy in Beijing.
Without Wikileaks as there's no other way to know this breaking story, Forrester, the firm that monitors these trends related to information technology and Internet, suggested that in case the U.S. is able to manage the censorship well, understand that the Great Firewall of Internet from China has arrived.
