Is not Wikileaks brouhaha already over in one day? Did public or media find anything worthwhile in hundreds of diplomatic cables published on Wikileaks websites and summaries in numerous newspapers?
•The US government imposed strict sanctions against Iran and clearly indicated that it will try all diplomatic avenues to stop Iran becoming a Nuclear power. Leaked cables confirm it.
•India openly says that Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI helps terrorists. Leaked cables also say the same.
•Diplomatic maneuvering to achieve a certain goal is common. We have the confirmation from the ‘secret sources’ that the US diplomats know how to play this game.
•Analyzing counterparts is wise. The leaked cables confirm that US diplomats are indeed wise.
The diplomatic cables indicate that diplomacy is tough. It requires thinking, intelligence and acumen that the US administration seems to possess.
Maintaining the fine line between confidentiality and free speech/right to access information is responsibility of every citizen. It seems like Wikileaks blurred the line.
Interestingly Wikileaks site asks for donation to defend the information. Is it to defend the information or use the money for espionage?
What do you think?
