Is that back around the time when there are pictures of Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with sad dam Hussein?
I agree ... It might strengthen a case with a clear pattern.

... It would make sense for there to be an investigation to find out who was in that gunship that murdered civilians..... Are they even acting on that?

Yes it is the same ere. There are many other things, i.e. Americans training Taliban Fighters (Hilary adimitted that) and as you mentioned Amercians shooting an Iranian pasenger airplane. Iraq using chemical weapons against Iranian and Kuridish civilians (and it was not till many years after that that Americn admitted that) moreover there are alligations that Israel sold eapons to Iran (i.e. read Treacherous Alliance - The Secret Dealings of Iran, Israel and the United States (Yale University Press, 2007)  So yes we really need to know what happened in there (no mention of the first gulf war, did US know in advance that Saddam is going to invade Kuwait?)

And not a single cable from the nineties, with exception of one cable from 1990...

We are less than 2.5% into the cables and you are wondering why there are gaps? :-\
