WikiLeaks Leads to US Foreign Policy Meltdown

U.S. diplomacy is in need of some pretty good “spin” as officials try to grope their way out of the Wikileak’s landslide of memos. Over one quarter of a million State Department documents were released on Sunday by the self-styled “truth in government” website known as WikiLeaks. Some of the documents are classified as secret embassy reports. Many discuss the subtle ways in which the United States has tried to influence foreign policy around the world.State Department officials are preparing for the barrage of articles which can be expected to be published in U.S. and international newspapers and on the internet. These articles will discuss the implications of numerous comments and other information based on this ‘treasure trove’ of information. Some analysts are saying that the release of these documents is nothing short of a “political meltdown” for U.S. foreign policy. How much of a meltdown? We must wait and see- and hear the ‘spin.’
