Zbigniew Brzezinski Downplays WikiLeaks

Brzezinski, former US National Security Advisor during President Jimmy Carter’s tenure believes that cablegate will have little to no impact upon US foreign policy. I share this view as there is very little in the leaks that wasn’t already known, if anything all the leaks did was prove what was commonly believed.

As for the revelations about foreign officials Brezezinski rightly suggests that these views have been propagated by the popular press for years, all the cables do is reinforce what the public already know.
