Malcolm Beith has a take on the Mexico Wikileaks that is worth reading. I agree with his assessment that the media portrayal is overblown, with headlines about "lost faith" or "fear." There is certainly concern, but I would be much more alarmed if there was no concern. Corruption, bureaucratic infighting, connections to narcotraffickers, and an army ill-equipped to fight a domestic enemy are all serious--and well known--problems. I am glad U.S. officials are talking about it openly, and I doubt this will have much of a negative impact on Mexican officials, who are even more acutely aware of those problems.
