They were embargoed until 9 p.m. ET Friday.

The cables, sent from the U.S. embassy in Ottawa, and titled, Security Environmental Profile Response For Mission Canada, appear to be part of regular updates on the situation in the country.

Wow that is really scary, they tried to identify natives as terrorists.  Then they could do all kinds of things to them legally.  That wouldn't be accepted by the public here in Canada tho, at least I hope not!

Well that's about 1,5 million people. Many of them are rightfully pissed. But I don't think they're "we'll blow you up" pissed.
