Value of WikiLeaks

Reader comment on item: Pouring Cold Water on WikiLeaks

Submitted by Mark D. (United States), Dec 14, 2010 at 22:55

--- In the end, it may distract us more than clarify what we know about Arab policies.—

Wikileaks tells us that that if they had simply shup up like oysters with our diplomats, we – the public and others in government who don't know - would have believed whatever policy they present in public, which is worst. Now, thanks to WikiLeak, we take it with a grain of salt.
