Why Do Our Diplomats Keep All the Good Secrets to Themselves?

There is so much gold still to be had in the WikiLeaks cables. Such as this, found today: “Embassy officers do not reach out to [Allen] Stanford because of the allegations of bribery and money laundering” — from May, 2006. Stanford, you’ll recall, is allegedly the ringleader of the world’s largest Ponzi scheme (largest, to be fair, only after a number of religions and several “personal training and development” forums). Stanford, by the way, is getting screened by a state shrink today, as his attorney claims Stanford is “too heavily medicated to assist in his own defense.” Well, hmm, tough one, maybe… someone should cut back on his medication?
