Not because I support US meddling in Ukraine’s internal affairs (the US is widely, and credibly, reputed to be a key player in the whole “color revolutions” phenomenon) or Ukraine’s relations with the European Union or with Russia, mind you. The best US foreign policy prescription for those issues is “butt out.”
But the sentiment in general is sound. The EU has been a coalition of bullies since its creation, and its eventual disintegration will likely be the occasion for future regional conflicts that American politicians will contrive to get us “dragged into.”
The real takeaway from the story for me, though, is that it still hasn’t sunk in among the Washington elite that they don’t get to keep secrets any more.
