As for the great WikiLeaks scandal, I'm not surprised by some of the name calling and other "sausage-making" eye rollers that go into our international diplomacy. Any one who thinks this is all some high brow affair has another thing coming. But the entire affair with Assange is pathetic from a national superpower perspective. And, leakwise, what is remarkable is how the entire Arab world wants us to take out Iran - and here is Obama playing pussyfoot with them. If that does not show you how powerless he is both domestically and internationally, nothing else will. And this was the guy who was going to improve our standing in the world?
And let's look at this tasty Wikileaks morsel on how the US tried to influence global warming accords. I'm not surprised - but why don't we use these tactics to stymie Iran?
