And this is why government cables should not be leaked to th public. This is going to be a major PR victory for Assad, and could potentially cause enormous damage to the Arab Spring movement in Syria, just when things were picking up there. I could place equal blame on the U.S. for continuing to play sneaky games like this in foreign countries. Could we stop doing this already, please? But the real blame for any harm that comes on this falls on the shoulders of Julian Assange, the man with no understanding of the power of information. Not everything should be known by everyone, even if the U.S. government did do the wrong thing. I like the spirit of what he is trying to do, but a little discretion with this sort of sensitive information would go a long way.
