Oh, oh Wiki Leaks may be in trouble now

In the first dump of leaks, Wiki Leaks released names of those in the theatre of war that could get Americans and others killed, then they release communiques between diplomats of different governments that while some may say are just embarrassing could have deleterious consequences of diplomacy and dialogue between the US and foreign leaders in the future.    For some reason this administration has gone way out of its way to down  play and not take seriously all this.  Where is the outrage?
Oh, oh but has Wiki Leaks gone too far now?
The next batch of material released seems to indicate how the US tried to intimidate, threaten, blackmail countries into signing the Global fraud [I mean warming] accords in Copenhagen.
Now why do I have the feeling there will all of a sudden be a sense of outrage from this administration and the MSM. 
Putting the lives of Americans at risk, damaging exchanges and negotiations between the US and foreign countries--mmmm not so big a deal.     But taking on Global warming or is it freezing or is it climate change or is it 'there must be something wrong because nothing is happening climate wise' .. now that is going too far.


Hidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.
The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial "Copenhagen accord", the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.
