What a tool:

This is not an academic exercise about freedom of information and it is not akin to the release of the Pentagon Papers, which involved an analysis aimed at saving American lives and exposing government deception. Instead, these sensitive cables contain candid assessments and analysis of ongoing matters and they should remain confidential to protect the ability of the government to conduct lawful business with the private candor that's vital to effective diplomacy.

The same excuses LBJ and Nixon gave, Kerry gives. The Ds are worse than useless, because every so often one cherishes the illusion that they are not useless.
