Wikileaks: Proof that Americans aren’t as Dumb as the World Thought

freedom of speech [wikileaks]

Freedom of Speech

Yes, contrary to most North Americans’ belief, the rest of the World thinks we’re naive and pretty dumb, along with a list of other problems that involve greed and war that I won’t go into here.

But, the diplomats and leaders of the United States were vindicated by Julian Assange, and the fellow who sent him the 25,000 plus pages of secret documents released as, “Wikileaks“!

One quote I remember and will paraphrase, “we (some world leaders) had no idea the Americans actually knew what was going on behind the scenes in these countries..they’re smarter than we thought”.

The American public has learned what the Government and Military has known for a while, that Afghan corruption is at such a point that the ONLY minister of Karzai‘s government NOT taking bribes is allegedly the Minister of Agriculture, makes a poignant counterpoint to our remaining arguments for staying in Afghanistan..to prop up the Karzai regime.

But what will happen to this good guy, the Minister of Agriculture, when the US Army pulls out? Even more of a question is what will happen to the many good people who have tried to stand for freedom and honesty?

We’re sure in a mess, but my thoughts and prayers go out to those in Afghanistan who are in between a rock and a hard place and didn’t choose either. They are in a similar but much worse place economically to those Americans who have family members fighting pointlessly now, for Afghan’s corrupt regime.
