WikiLeaks Cables For Dec. 14-18 (PHOTOS): Tom Cruise, Fidel Castro On Obama, Aung San Suu Kyi

With its founder Julian Assange released on bail, WikiLeaks released more confidential documents from the U.S. State Department, and continues to show no signs of slowing.

This week’s dump touched on an assorted lot of public figures. Fidel Castro talked Obama, while a Indian official questioned the relevance of freshly-released Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Even Tom Cruise got in on the action, running into troubles with the Church of Scientology while filming a movie in Germany.

Take a look at last week’s batch here. WikiLeaks says that still less than 1 percent have been published thus far.

Here are the highlights from this week’s leaked documents:

From the cable, dated Dec. 21, 2007:

In a conversation with Pol/Econ Specialist on August 13, Hamburg Interior Ministry Spokesman Marco Haase suggested that the announcement was the result of several unrelated occurrences, such as the recent publication of Caberta’s book, the case of the Berlin girl and her brother seeking refuge in Hamburg (Ref.), the attention to Scientology generated during the filming of the movie “Valkyrie” in Berlin, in which Tom Cruise stars, and the summer media slump. According to Haase, Nagel believes that a ban alone is not the answer. Rather, assistance to ex-Scientologists and education.

It is doubtful that the Hamburg government will change their view of Scientology in the future even though officials openly and cordially discuss with ConGen representatives USG policy on religious freedom.
