Former diplomats discuss WikiLeaks at Princeton forum

If you are interested in the debate over the more than 1,000 diplomatic cables recently made public by WikiLeaks via the New York Times and other international media outlets, you're likely to find the video below to be of value. 

It is a recording of a panel discussion held on December 14 at the Woodrow Wilson School on the campus of Princeton University.

The three presenters are former diplomats--all critical of the public disclosures of private correspondence between foreign embassies and the U.S. State Department. 

They discuss the nature of diplomatic work, how intelligence is gathered and reported, how the disclosures are likely to impact future relations with foreign governments and how the nature of future reports from the diplomatic corps to Washington may change as a result of the disclosures.
