    I find your attitude obdurate, your opinions fixed, and you seem uninterested in assimilating new information. I think i'm done.

    I wonder how Russia will feel when Wikileaks leaks THEIR cables. Lulz. Y'all just don't appreciate how this is the gift that keeps on giving.

    First, it highlights the holes in our SRSInet, before something far more major is unleashed.

    Second, it reminds us again of the importance of the press in the American system. This will be a great lesson for American school children on the Bill of Rights, and how it functions (not to mention some of the posters on this thread).

    Third, many of these cables show exactly how well the state department functions when interacting with corrupt, incompetent foreign stoolies (in the situation with dyncorp hiring child prostitutes in Afghanistan, for instance, it shows that the state department and/or DOD held Dyncorp accountable for this conduct and that punitive measures were put into place, for instance, and the ambassador rebuffed attempts by the Afghani contact to squash media reports).

    Fourth, it provides nearly limitless opportunities for humor (those of you who haven't been reading them are missing out).

    Now? A future opportunity to hold Russia accountable to the concept of free speech.

    Some of you people just don't appreciate the large silver lining that has come along with this situation.

    You people haven't gotten over the fact that Obama was born in Hawaii, dude. How can we take this claim seriously?

    I'd vote for him.
