Internal correspondence of U.S. diplomats was put on public display through the site-debunkers WikiLeaks. In tyschah communique often contains disapproving expression on host countries, including close allies.
Among the disclosed materials — apparently plans to illegal spying on the leading figures of the UN and the assumption that the State Department knew in advance about the coming Georgian attack on South Ossetia.
RT correspondent Alexey Yaroshevskii with details.
Alexei Yaroshevskii correspondent RT:Some of the things posted versatile website WikiLeaks so cynical for its own essence, it is very difficult to imagine what steps will now need to make the South American diplomats to regain his reputation.
First, it is, of course, is a huge threat to their work in the Middle East and Muslim countries around the world, as in some discussions U.S. diplomats there are extreme anti-Islamic statements. This naturally raises the danger of their work in the Middle East and Muslim countries around the world.
According to the disk imaging, posting WikiLeaks, according to discussions U.S. diplomats, they are one way or another betrayed his own closest allies. For example, WikiLeaks reports that South American diplomats supported the Kurdish party in Turkey, despite public statements to the effect that it is not, and the fact that Ankara — one of Washington's closest allies in the region.
Another fascinating thing: a revelatory material WikiLeaks said that the hidden services of the United States has been ordered to spy on a few major figures of the UN. For example, they tried to get their credit card numbers, fingerprints and so on.
Some things are the same as disclosed WikiLeaks, look quite absurd: South American diplomats sent out letters to European diplomats in which it came to the UN General Assembly. European diplomats have annotations, when and how to leave the Assembly Hall during a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
According Wikileaks, a member of the Swedish delegation received a letter from U.S. diplomats in which he was told that he must leave the courtroom when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad mention the Holocaust. Since the Iranian president is not touched upon this issue in his speech, the Swedish diplomat was confused and did not know what to do next: leave the room or stay. This incident shows how Washington is trying to influence the policies of other states, to monitor the situation, urging other countries to follow its instructions.
Wikileaks website provides information to many magazines and newspapers around the world. The magazine "Russian Reporter" is no exception. We understand that the website has provided this journal is very fascinating information on the war in South Ossetia in August 2008.
Wikileaks reports that south american salting in Georgia (then it was John Tefft, at the moment he is salting the USA in Ukraine) was aware of the fact that the Georgian missile systems began to move toward the border with South Ossetia, about the day before, as in South Ossetia began to fall Georgian bomb. Later, after a certain number of days after which he contacted Washington to discuss how to start an information war to justify the campaign of Saakashvili. If someone hesitated that Saakashvili was involved in the attack.
We also appreciate that … reportedly WikiLeaks, several countries, including the Baltic states and Poland, who openly supported Georgia in the war, and knew exactly what Saakashvili attacked South Ossetia, but, of course, have decided to ignore this fact.
In addition, WikiLeaks reports that several U.S. diplomats talked about various world leaders — European and Russian — and discuss who and how to run the state. In particular, they discussed the Russian ruling tandem, Putin and Medvedev cooperation and spoke about who actually runs this country. According to them, Russia controls most likely Putin, although he and the Prime Minister.
These findings are not something entirely new. In fact, this can be read in at least some Western newspaper or journal. In addition, these discussions took place under George W. Bush — in 2008 and earlier. Taking into account the "reset" in relations between Moscow and Washington, at the moment, the U.S. diplomats may have a different outlook.
But many experts agree that exposure organized by the website WikiLeaks, are not something new. About much of it previously knew, and voices.
Eytan Gilboa, center of international relations at the Institute of Bar Ilan:We know quite a lot, a huge part of what they say about the U.S. favorites, events and processes. Can only confuse what we litsezreem is written in official documents.
Alexei Yaroshevskii: But, of course, have to wait for the reaction to the revelations of U.S. diplomats organized by WikiLeaks.
