Ugly Americans Try To Stave Off Pariah Status

By apologizing in advance.

US warns world of new, incriminating revelations

"The U.S. government has notified Ottawa that the WikiLeaks website is preparing to release sensitive U.S. diplomatic files that could damage U.S. relations with allies around the world.

U.S. officials say the documents may contain accounts of compromising conversations with political dissidents and friendly politicians and could result in the expulsion of U.S. diplomats from foreign postings.

A Foreign Affairs spokeswoman said the U.S. ambassador to Canada, David Jacobson, has phoned Minister of Foreign Affairs Lawrence Cannon to inform him of the matter.

Melissa Lantsman said the Canadian Embassy in Washington is "currently engaging" with the U.S. State Department on the matter.

A State Department spokesman said Wednesday the release of confidential communications about foreign governments probably will erode trust in the United States as a diplomatic partner.

U.S. diplomatic outposts around the world have begun notifying other governments that WikiLeaks may release the documents in the next few days."

Yeah but...What about the Franklin cover-up? Even if the Presidents and Prime Ministers are engaged in sexual abuse of children it doesn't stop the mouth breathers from supporting them.

I've always thought that about 25% of americans will unquestioningly support authority figures in this country no matter what they do. The more repressive and warmongering the better. They could slice puppies open on the front lawn of the white house and eat their brains, or as you suggest, bring young lads in from Boys' Town and have midnight orgies but it just won't matter.
Seems the fascists have to placate the foreigners however, and are somewhat worried about upcoming revelations.

Hi Nolo:

No wonder greencrow just got booted off the CBC website comment after more than 5 years of posting, no warning and no incident that precipitated my explusion....they're afraid of what I MIGHT say in the FUTURE once this hits the fan.

Also, what do you think of the new (upgraded) "Truthseeker" website? I think Rixon's finally been taken over by the bots...what with his reference on the home page to "Rigorous intuition"...a website that was taken over years ago (and booted me off) and his attack on George Galloway.

Let me know what you think.
