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.
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.
Mr. Brzezinksi suspects that an unnamed intelligence agency is ’seeding’ information through WikiLeaks to target specific countries.
The WikiLeaks US embassy cables reveal just how dangerously involved the Americans are in every aspect of Pakistan’s affairs.
Unfortunately, both politicians and military commanders flouted Pakistani laws and conducted direct diplomacy with western diplomats bypassing the Pakistan Foreign Office and encouraging foreign meddling in internal Pakistani matters.
Wikileaks does not make the material it receives available directly to the public. They are first censored by New York Times and several other prominent newspapers. Only 623 documents out of alleged 250,000 have appeared in public. The public needs to ask: Where are the remaining documents? Why the censorship? And why the selective release, assailing Pakistan, China, Saudi Arabia and others and largely leaving out US allies? If newspapers will release censored cables, Mr. Assange should take up a job at NYT.
Since late 2006, United States government, military, intelligence and media have been orchestrating regular attacks against Pakistan, creating a false alarm about its nuclear capability and portraying its premier spy agency, the ISI, as a threat to world peace. Here is a chance for Pakistan to use these documents to argue its own case more confidently.
