And still another Constitutionally tone-deaf Defense Secretary

What is it that the Secretary Gates doesn’t get about democracy or trust? Gates expresses concern that Wikileaks has damaged the trust the United States enjoys among its friends and allies, but expresses no concern at all over the deceit, half-truths and lies the US has spread among its friends and allies, not to mention its own citizens, that were disclosed by Wikileaks. Gates suggests that trust is best served by lying, that truth is best served by deception, and that democracy is best served by private self-interest. Something is terribly wrong here.
