my ‘quote of the day’ from the oil drum

“Fundamentally, like much of Wikileak’s material – these secret, confidential, classified, government communications don’t really contain anything that a well informed, savvy, independent analyst couldn’t have worked out for themselves. The most interesting think about Wikileaks is how unsurprising they’ve been.

We need to get away from the idea of an ‘elite’, a bunch of people with a grand plan, operating from a position of greater knowledge and understanding that the rest of us. Everyone is just muddling along, you, me and the president of the USA”.
