The naked emperor | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The naked emperor

Behind the multiple, hypocritical layers of spin served to the
frantic 24/7 news cycle, politics is mostly a tacky reality show.

But to believe, as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton does, that these disclosures constitute "an attack not only on American foreign policy interests but on the international community"; or that WikiLeaks, as President Barack Obama has put it, committed a serious crime, is to display nothing but tacky imperial arrogance. As if the world didn't have the right to gorge itself on the kind of political junk food served to a few consumers inside the Washington palaces of power.
