Wikileaks: diplomacy, a changed game? (part 2)

WikiLeaks has done it again! Over a quarter of a million classified and private documents have fallen into the hands of those dreaded journalists. Telegrams sent between the United States' State Department and some 270 embassies and consulates around the world are now in the hands of the public. So how damaging are these leaks to international diplomacy?

A debate with Laura Baines and guests:
 

Hall Gardner, Professor and Chair of the Department of International and Comparative Politics at the American University of Paris
Paul Vallet, Professor of International Relations at Sciences Po
Dr Michael Ray Smith, Professor of Communication Studies, Campbell University, North Carolina
