New piece from Paris by NYT's Steve Erlanger opens: "The United States considers itself a shining beacon of democracy and openness, but for many Europeans,  Washington’s fierce reaction to the flood of secret diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks displays imperial arrogance and hypocrisy, indicating a post-9/11 obsession with secrecy that contradicts American principles."
But I guess that is just what you get from cheese-eating, white wine drinking French people.
