When it fits your own little world everything is great right? Wait untill the day comes when your emails with your mistress get published on a website for the world (and your spouse) to see.
Bet you'll all cry foul then.

How exactly have they benefited from the leak? Some of that stuff really is quite embarrassing and definitely won't improve foreign relations...
Wikileaks is a dis-info propaganda. All the leaks are managed by US. Anyone who believes such leaks should ask themselves the most obvious two questions.
How hard is it for US government to spread dis-info propaganda wrapped around leaks?
How hard is it for a US governmental employee to leak secret files?
The answer is so obvious./
Embarrassing? When did the US care about embarrassment?
Last I checked the US have been involved in toppling official governments, supporting coups, implementing assassinations, raping detainees, abducting civilians and sending them to secret prison camps for torture... bla bla bla.
Embarrassing? Are you kidding me.
This is more than that. Do you know what dis-info means?
u r not talking about someone who had a choice in what info was given to them. They cannot print the other side if they don't have it.
If embarrassment is the small consequence to clinch to power, then it is 100% worth it.
Just examine the dirty tactics US used in the cold war, to clinch to power, do you think the US cares?

However, there is no need to see another side of the story when you read objectives such as spying on the UN. The instructions issued do not require a response. They are instructions, not a conversation.
Question: do you seriously think that the US are the ONLY ones spying on the UN, or others for that matter?
Did you already read about China's attack on Google and the internet? Well that's a fact too...
That type of side thinking is naive and almost dangerous, because then we will vilify the parties we know about ONLY, with the LIMITED information we have access to...
Common... If China, Russia, and other countries are not spying in the UN, NATO, and all over the spectrum, then the world is not the world and people are not people.
