Washington is running a secret intelligence campaign targeted at the leadership of the United Nations, including the secretary general, Ban Ki-moon and the permanent Security Council representatives from China, Russia, France and the UK.
The early indications following the extraordinary WikiLeaks today are that there are going to be very serious problems for US relations.
WikiLeaks and the Transition
I think we should all support the idea of open transparent government and to expose illegal abuse of power like spying within the United Nations on our allies. I thought it was our duty as Americans to say STOP. The mass release of secret documents by WikiLeaks though pose threats to agents like former secret CIA agent Valerie Plame and is deplorable - but didn't the mirror just break demonstrating the hypocrisy of our times!!!!!. Its supposed to be acceptable though when those within the government do the same thing.
Its time for us to learn, we must do our business differently inside and outside of Government. Where is the humanity, the intelligence the respect in all this?
Understandably the American government is paranoid about its security, with its internal and external standing challenged in ways not seen before. Its to no ones advantage to tare ourselves apart by attacking each other but its also time to face up to the reasons for this mess. To be respected we must respect others and pull together. Our security is assured acting as one and talking to all.
The TRANSITION we are in has to be tackled together, there will be no other way to succeed. Currently the chips are stacked against humanity and so we better start the talking soon.
