I dont know about you but I think Uncle Sam is coming out pretty well in the wikileaks saga. All the conspiracy theories especially from the "anti-war" war left, are being blown out of the water. I think I am warming to this open government idea, lets call it how it is in future less of the "diplomacy" which in real terms amounts to word games.
Can you imagine if a senior Politico called a whole nation "Feral"? He would be packed off and a swastika tattooed on his forehead. Say it in "Private" and everything is OK.
