Another side benefit to Wikileaks

Here's a side benefit to the preoccupation of the United States State Department with damage control from Wikileaks: The freeze has thawed.
Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor) said Wednesday in an interview with Israel Radio that the United States has stopped pressuring Israel to freeze Jewish building in Judea and Samaria because Washington is busy with controlling damage caused by secret diplomatic documents released by the WikiLeaks website.

Carl, there is a huge downside to Wikileaks. Despite the "good news" for Israel, how forthcoming do you suppose government representatives from other countries - maybe especially Arab countries - are likely to be in diplomatic meetings with the Americans in the future? How much important information relevant to Israel and to security more generally won't get shared with the Americans and consequently might never make it to Israel's ears?

I think the Arab governments are furious that the US didn't take their advice to attack Iran. And this is interesting when you consider the anti-Israel crowd insists that US policy is always for the benefit of Israel. Well, why didn't the US take a step that would have benefited the Arabs? Its a good question.
