WikiLeaks Disclosure: Sarkozy, an emperor sans clothes, Putin, an alpha dog

By One India

London, Nov.29 (ANI): Disclosures by the secret web site WikiLeaks have revealed that the Obama administration and its representatives in various foreign capitals described French President Nicholas Sarkozy as an "Emperor without clothes", Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as 'Hitler' and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as an "Alpha Dog".

The disclosures, which have left Washington red-faced and in fire-fighting mode, also reveal a strong criticism of Britain's military operations in Afghanistan; attack both then opposition leader David Cameron and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown; highlight American requests for specific intelligence on individual MPs; links between the Russian government and organised crime and the deep concern in Washington and London over the security of Pakistan's nuclear weapons programme

According to the Daily Mail, President Barack Obama is revealed in one damaging cable as having 'no feelings for Europe' and preferring to 'look East rather than West'.

The cables also reveal experts informing about repeated private calls from King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia for the United States to attack Iran to destroy its nuclear programme and 'cut off the head of the snake' risked destablising the Middle East.

The new WikiLeaks release is set to put strain on the 'special' relationship that the United States shares with leaders of the world. (ANI)
