Discussed in this article is the release of confidential conversations between U.S. diplomats about certain Latin American countries by Wikileaks. Some of what was said about these countries was negative criticism. I have to agree with the U.S. Ambassador to Colombia, Michael McKinley, who condemned the release of these private conversations. The fact of the matter is that such conversations and criticisms take place between the diplomats of every country, and are necessary to maintain peace between the nations of the world. These conversations were meant to be private, and should stay that way.
