I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this WikiLeaks thing. The leak of diplomatic cables doesn’t directly put people in danger, as the earlier Afghanistan and Iraq leaks did, but rather causes great harm to the image of the U.S. diplomatic corps. Other countries won’t be trusting us so much to keep secrets.
For the most part, U.S. government reaction has been level-headed. But behind the scenes, something must be done to ensure this doesn’t happen again. I hate to say it, but some things need to be kept secret. Saudi Arabia’s desire to have the U.S. bomb Iran is one of those secrets worth keeping. Now , who the hell knows what’s gonna happen between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
