Beware, people!   Our   Foggy Bottom, our State Department, our pillar of diplomacy and promoter of democracy   is under the attack from the evil forces of Wikileaks. The evil Voldemot   Julian   Assange through his agent Bradley Manning is on to the path   of the destruction of our    eternal effort of goodness which for so many years was   promoted by brilliant minds of Madeleine, Condi and Hillary.    This new     gruesome   attack   revealed something unthinkable and irreparable (Joe, the Moron- Scarborough is already   asking to   put   Manning in jail for 25 years);

-          That our State Department is led by incompetent liars and bastards.

-          That   we have no foreign policy.

-          That we bribe others   and take bribes.

-          That we exercise extortion and blackmail.

-          That our diplomats are actually just shills working for private people and/or even foreign powers.

-          That no matter who leads the Foggy Bottom it just follows the Pentagon.

-          That   our diplomats are encouraged to spy.

-          That   murder    of innocent people is exercised   with the help of our   "knights of democracy'.

-          That we use our President as a bargaining chip    when   pushing other countries to cover for our mess.

Come to think of it we really cannot "conduct our business as usual' if   such things come out into the open.   No wonder our media is up in arms against.. Brad Manning. No, they do not discuss all those unfortunate things above. They are out for his blood.    Why is that?   Maybe the   answer   is simple- we had been doing it all along; nothing surprising in those revelations. Except that instead of pants on fire we have now skirts on fire.   That's the minor difference, really. And as for money- some of it went to the media, right?
