Several Pakistani newspapers presented a funny scene next morning: falling over each other to apologize and explain. Pakistani giants were ruffled by a British newspaper that offered its own interpretation. None of the Pakistani giants had it in them to assess and reach their own conclusions.

India’s RSS Deadlier Than Al-Qaeda: Indian State Legislator
Two Indian Muslim legislators are being hounded by the Saffron alliance, a codename for India’s rising extremist Hindu groups. One of the legislators quoted WikiLeaks cables to dub the Saffron alliance as deadlier than Al-Qaeda. The other one presented evidence showing two of India’s largest companies – Reliance [...]
Singapore’s Ambassador at Large criticized India and its foreign policy in Asia during a meeting with US diplomats.
The Daily Mail’s story was dubbed ‘fake’ by The Guardian, which denies there is anything that embarrasses India in leaked US diplomatic cables. A couple of Pakistani newspaper prematurely ‘admitted’ it’s a hoax and one newspaper offered its own conspiracy theory, ‘It’s the work of agencies.’ Here is the editor of the newspaper explaining his side of the story.
CANADIAN WRITER JUSTIN BODUR: We should get used to looking at the cables themselves, and not letting the Guardian or anyone else (including Wikileaks if it comes to that) interpose themselves. That really is one of the most amazing things about Wikileaks – not that it gives the data to the Guardian, but that it gives the data to anyone. That is part of the reason that there is this unbelievable global persecution of Wikileaks going on (and not, for example, of the Guardian).
UK’s Guardian newspaper declared that WikiLeaks on India are fake. Really? Is US envoy Timothy Roemer’s cable of 16 Feb. 2010 calling Indian military “slow and slumbering” fake? Didn’t he call Indian military doctrine a “myth”? Guardian, along with NYT and a German magazine, ruined the good work of WikiLeaks by selectively releasing cables angled to attack nations at odds with US, British and Nato policies.
As sources in the Kremlin suggest WikiLeaks founder be nominated for a Nobel Prize, Russia’s Vladimir Putin voiced support for Julian Assange and assailed the United States for its ‘undemocratic’ attitude toward the Website owner. He said Americans have no right to lecture others on democracy after this incident.
Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States tells US officials Pakistanis will accept peanuts in any deal and that Pakistan is like a horny woman that wants sex but not without some material benefits first.
WikiLeaks cables from US embassy in Islamabad reveal the extent of US meddling in Pakistan. Dr. Mazari should know. Former US envoy blocked her column in a newspaper.
US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks show the mistrust US officials harbor toward Indian leaders. The former Indian army chief Gen. Kapoor is described by one cable as ‘incomptenet combat leader’ with ‘unrealistic war doctrines’. The current Indian army chief is dubbed as ‘egotist’ and ’self-obsessed’. Privately, US diplomats admit Karzai has allowed India and Iran to expand intelligence presence inside his country. Israeli spy chiefs are accused of raising assassination teams and drawing up war plans against Iran.
Imran Khan, the only Pakistani politician who refused to toe the line set by the US Embassy in Islamabad.
If Gen. Kayani is going to turn the tables, it will have to be a clean break and we have to be ready for the consequences.
