When Hillary Clinton called up a counterpart in a foreign capital with a heads up on the Cablegate papers, the US secretary of state recalled for reporters what she was told, at a briefing on Monday, “Don’t worry about it, you should see what we say about you.”

Reassured and emboldened perhaps by similar reactions the world over, the US said the leaks were an attack on the way diplomacy was conducted the world over and America will not change the way it does diplomacy.

Indian diplomats at the UN, for instance, who were perhaps spied upon by US officials following a state department directive disclosed by WikiLeaks, reacted with a mix of amusement and studied indifference.
