Together they however provide a picture that US diplomats don't want the world to see.
While I think it is OK and comendable to publish documents about shooting civilians in Irak, I am not sure the recent leak is fair on the US. As we agree, virtually every country will have such or similar views towards politicians from other countries. For example, the former German chancellor said "Bush has no clue...". If they leak such info from the US, then they should also leak other "gossip" from let's say Germany, France, UK and compare.
What is the actual bottom line of the new leak? That the US does not love everyone from their heart? The bottom line for international (not US alone) diplomacy and politics is that it is all a big charade, wearing masks and thinking selfishly.
