In addition to guaranteeing that many Iraqi and Afghan anti-terrorism workers will be killed when their association with the US is revealed, Wikileaks' release of 313 jillion personal emails and other documents has shed light on what US officials really think of world leaders.
Here are the most embarrassing comments released thus far:

4."...I'm a superstitious man.

But, that aside, let me say that I swear, on the souls of my grandchildren, that I will not be the one to break the peace we've made here today."
