Who wudda thunk it? Our client states telling us what we want to hear?!?

From today's NYT (AP):

"Mexico Prez: Latam Needs Visible US Presence58 minutes ago

Mexican President Felipe Calderon told a U.S. official last year that Latin America "needs a visible U.S. presence" to counter Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's growing influence in the region, according to a U.S. State Department cable leaked to WikiLeaks and posted online Thursday."

Wikileaks also tells us many Moslem country leaders tell our diplomats they're afraid of Iran. None of the mainstream news articles I saw even entertained the possibility that these leaders tell us what we want to hear. So, according to the main-stream press, diplomacy, for the first time in history, has become honesty-based.

Only a Faux fan would swallow that!
