"Secret diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks have revealed new details about how the United States manipulated last year’s climate talks in Copenhagen. The cables show how the United States sought dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming, how financial and other aid was used by countries to gain political backing, and how the United States mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the Copenhagen Accord."

And we are surprised by this????

That's what's kind of funny about Wikileaks...even the media and the diplomats admit it....nothing really that shocking. It's all stuff that everyone already knows, just things that aren't usually talked about in the open.

To this day I still American friend of a fried was at a lady's house in Suffolk (someone I know)...they were having tea and the English lady reported that she had been to the United States on numerous occasions. The American guy says, "Isn't our country great?"

"Well!" she replied.
