WikiLeaks? You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

The Guardian's executive investigations editor, David Leigh, says there are many powerful disclosures yet to be revealed from the WikiLeaks dump of U.S. diplomatic cables.

Meanwhile, Noam Chomsky says the leaked diplomatic messages reveal a "profound hatred of democracy on the part of [America's] political leadership."

Chomsky has a talent for getting to the heart of the matter.

I liked about the part about Manning getting into the security computers.
It seems we have to blame Lady Gaga for the leaks.

I had to stop watching when hillary clinton went on and starting whining and bleating in that wounded, self-pitying way that US-American imperialists have.

I'm not sure what comes out of these communiques we didn't already know. The U.S. distrusts Pakistan and Pakistan distrusts the U.S. Wow. Putin's a thug. Shocking! Canadians can be critical of the United States. I guess that has something to do with them giving so many reasons to be critiqued.

It is curious that the U.S. seemed to go ballistic when word got out that Wiki had the goods on Bank of America. There have been so many veiled rumours of seismic problems at BOA over the past couple of months, Wiki could be lighting the fuse.

Meanwhile the climate summit in Cancun is tanking and nobody is noticing.
