I agree with the OP's general premise. Whether or not truly damning material will appear in these leaks is still to be determined, but in the
meantime, even without scandal calibre content, the cables do make very interesting reading.
I just read a page summing up the situation in Venezuela and I must say that it is refreshing to read an unvarnished assessment by US diplomats of the
situation there, particularly of the developing relationship between Venezuela and Iran. The issue of unranium deposits in Venzuela, the
of land currently mined for other things, but suspected to contain uranium deposits and speculation about the relationship of
Venuzelan nuclear ambitions and those of Iran is fascinating. Just their overall assessment of the way the Venezuelans operate is interesting. It's
nice to read this sort of thing without the hype that usually accompanies official "press releases".
As far as I'm concerned, even if we don't get the "down and dirty" on poison pen shipments into Cuba, the leaks are a very worthwhile source of
information for forming judgements about the personality and overall aims of the superpower doing so much of the singing and dancing on the world's
stage these days.
