India has said that they are embarrassed by any of wikileaks documents. According to a news article: Even as WikiLeaks continues to release confidential US diplomatic cables, Indian officials Friday indicated there was nothing in the leaked internal communications made public so far which were any "potential source of embarrassment". "We are quite confident in terms of discourse with US... nothing which has been disclosed so far has been any potential source of embarrassment," said a senior government official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Since Nov 28,  WikiLeaks, the whistleblower website, has begun publishing in stages over 250,000 leaked US embassy cables, dating from 1966 to February 2010. These include cables sent by embassies in Delhi and Islamabad, which highlight some of the key diplomatic discussions following the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. If India is not embarrassed over these revelation, I think no country should be. The only personnel who are facing embarrassment are the culprits and the sinners. What I know about this topic I have wrote it. Now if someone know the details kindly write it here so that we can share our knowledge.

    However, as regards the leakage of the diplomatic cables with the US Embassy in Islamabad, one has not become wiser a bit. The release throws light on Pakistan’s intelligence apparatus, which has provided strategic support to the Taliban, helping it coordinate attacks against US troops and assassinate Afghani leaders, despite the fact that Pakistan officially claims to be an ally of the US. Any objective strategic analyst knows that Pakistan is playing both sides in the war in Afghanistan. For Pakistan, Afghanistan provides the so-called strategic depth against India. It always wants to ensure that Afghanistan remains under Islamabad’s influence.


    Similarly, it is also no news to India if the leaks have revealed how the Pakistani establishment is systematically supporting the anti-India elements. It is not surprising that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif - Opposition leader Nawaz Sharif's brother - alerted the Jamaat-ud-Dawa to impending UN sanctions after the Mumbai terror attacks. Following this tip-off, the terror outfit emptied its bank accounts before they could be frozen. It is also not surprising, even though it is interesting to know through the leaks, that in February this year Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani rejected a US suggestion, conveyed through Senator John Kerry, to sign a non-aggression pact with India, arguing that its public would not support the idea unless Washington “treated India and Pakistan equally” and New Delhi reduced its "footprint" in Afghanistan.


    If anything, the WikiLeaks has only reconfirmed the truth that the United States, or any other country for that matter, can never satisfy the Pakistani establishment when it comes to India. The fundamental reality is that Pakistan’s very existence is dependent on its anti-India posture. Take India away and Pakistan will have an identity crisis. Unless the typical mindset of the Pakistanis is changed, India will remain their eternal enemy. Mercifully, the Americans in private are now concurring with the Indian stance. It remains to be seen when Washington will publicly go for a reevaluation of its policy towards Pakistan, which is entrapping the United States – offering selective help in exchange for bags of cash and weapons that are to be used against India, whether directly or indirectly through Afghanistan.
