WikiLeaks is in the process of publishing more than 500,000 Saudi diplomatic documents to the Internet, the transparency website said Friday, a move that echoes its famous release of U.S. State Department cables in 2010.

WikiLeaks says in a statement that it has already posted roughly 60,000 documents. Most of them appeared to be in Arabic.

There was no immediate way to verify the authenticity of the documents, although WikiLeaks has a long track record of hosting large-scale leaks of government material. Many of the documents carried green letterhead marked "Kingdom of Saudi Arabia" or "Ministry of Foreign Affairs."

This could have huge repercussions. The Manning leaks ended up helping to catalyze the Arab Spring (because of what they revealed about U. S. and Arab governments).

Saudi Arabia is already a powder keg as it is.
