Incredible damage from Wikileaks doc dump

How bad is it? It appears that the most secret
deliberations from not only our government but governments around the world is
now fully open for inspection by anyone who wants to know.

Catastrophic
is not too strong
a word:

A cache of a quarter-million confidential American diplomatic
cables, most of them from the past three years, provides an unprecedented look
at back-room bargaining by embassies around the world, brutally candid views of
foreign leaders and frank assessments of nuclear and terrorist threats.

Some of the cables, made available to The New York Times and several
other news organizations, were written as recently as late February, revealing
the Obama administration’s exchanges over crises and conflicts. The material was
originally obtained by WikiLeaks, an organization devoted to revealing secret
documents. WikiLeaks posted the first installment of the archive on its Web site
on Sunday.
The disclosure of the cables is sending shudders through the diplomatic
establishment, and could strain relations with some countries, influencing
international affairs in ways that are impossible to predict.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and American ambassadors around the
world have been contacting foreign officials in recent days to alert them to the
expected disclosures.

Over the next few days, the US will be engaged in major league damage control
as more and more revelations hit the press. The effect, as the Times story says,
is unknown but could run the gamut from straining relations with other countries
to internal strife being whipped up as a result of what some leader said to
us.
Hold on to your hats. It’s going to be very bumpy over the next few
days.
