More all over the place

I've noticed a big pile of non-Wikileaks stuff piling up, and will have to get around to it, but first I need to reduce the Wikileaks pile.  As always, nothing of any significance.
"Cables: US Upset by Nordic Defense Cooperation" - "The United States should remind Norway where its security guarantee comes from."

This is kinda big, and disappeared from consciousness:  "Wikileaks: US-Nato plan to defend Baltics from Russia"

Those crazy Norwegians:  "Conversely, Norwegians are extremely opposed to the use of military force to achieve goals, no matter how laudable."  That is a wonderful sentence.

"Swedish Officials Complained To US That Hollywood-Pushed IPRED 'Anti-Piracy' Law Did More Harm Than Good"

Speaking of having Hollywood draft your intellectual property laws, Wikileaks has provided the opportunity for Spanish politicians to be re-bribed!

"Brazil - Cablegate : how the US sees the landless movement in Brazil"  Go on, take a wild guess!

"Jakarta accused over Papua"

"WikiLeaks cables: Iraq security firms operate 'mafia' to inflate prices"  You know its bad when Haliburton calls  it a 'mafia'.

"Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits."  Another champion sentence.

"WikiLeaks: Secret whaling deal plotted by US and Japan"  Plotting a malicious prosecution.

Every year, the Jews hold a contest to see which Jew most exemplifies the values of the worst 'anti-Semitic' stereotypes.  Unfortunately, there has never been a winner as there are just too many worthy candidates.  Related:  "WikiLeaks: Israel demanded bribes for goods entering Gaza"

Who said this?:
"We only know these crimes took place because insiders blew the whistle at great personal risk. . . Government whistleblowers are part of a healthy democracy and must be protected from reprisal."
