But is that necessarily so? There are two reasons for doubt. First, as Lee Smith astutely notes, the Arabs could merely be telling Americans what they think they want to hear: “We know what the Arabs tell diplomats and journalists about Iran,” he writes, “but we don’t know what they really think about their Persian neighbor.” Their appeals could be part of a process of diplomacy which involves mirroring one’s allies’ fears and desires.

" And they do not amount to what the Italian foreign minister, in one of the sorrier moments in the history of hyperbole (or is it hysteria?) , deemed the "September 11 of world diplomacy. " They are also not "top secret" since between 2 and 3 million government employees are cleared to see this level of "secret" document, and some 500,000 people have access to the Secret Internet Protocol Network (SIPRnet) where the cables were stored.
