I think the real purpose of releasing documents such as these cables is being missed. WikiLeaks I don't believe, is focusing on a particular offense but rather in general pointing out the fact that governments, U.S. or otherwise, have lost focus of what their primary concern should be. Super powers such as the U.S. should lead by example. If a countries economic stability is stellar, its citizens are taken care of, and we can confidently say this is the way it should be done, then we can strongly suggest how others could benefit. Just remember, we elected the people that are now creating controversy.
