The purloined diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks aren’t very surprising in their revelations. Did anybody believe that diplomats and politicians were sincere in their public statements? Most of what has come out is exactly what you might have guessed were the true sentiments of the people involved.
What is surprising is the lack of scandal. So far we have not learned about crooked behavior by American leaders. There have been no revelations of seedy financial gain, secret prisons, bribery, coverups, torture, or perverse sexual behavior. Based on what we know so far, you would almost believe that the U.S. government is honorable.
