Leaked cable suggests American diplomats told to gather intelligence (The Obama lovefest is over)
cnn ^ | 11/29/2010 | Kevin Conlon

A 2009 cable sent from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to American U.N. missions and embassies around the world ostensibly directed American diplomats to engage in intelligence-gathering.

The 8,358 word National Humint Collection Directive (Humint being Human Intelligence) "reflects the results of a recent Washington review of reporting and collection needs focused on the United Nations," according to the document made public by the whistle-blower website Wikileaks Sunday.

The information Clinton directed the diplomats she oversees to ascertain ranged from basic biographical data such as diplomats' names and addresses to their frequent flyer and credit card numbers, to even "biometric information on ranking North Korean diplomats." Typical biometric information includes fingerprints, signatures, and iris recognition.

The cable, simply signed 'CLINTON', is classified S/NF - or 'Secret/No Foreign' - and was sent to 33 embassies and the U.N. mission offices in New York, Vienna, and Rome.

Now no country will want to even talk to this administration unless they got some juicy stuff on Obama.

I heard that the maoist was able to convince his cohorts in the msm to withhold some very damaging details but did not try to protect Hitlery.

Maybe I’m missing something, information in leaks does not seem to live up to the reaction they are getting.

this leak was designed to hurt Hill’s chances at running in 2012.
It’s no surprise that these “leaks” started when they did. This has Soros’s fingerprints all over it.

We won't see a lot of the reactions but no other countries diplomats will trust the US anymore.

This is beyond damning, it's so-called diplomats turned into blackmailers.

That is true but it's going to ultimately hurt Obama. No one will trust anyone in this administration.

Well, Obama promised “Transparency” - he never thought that he would actually be forced to deliver it!

This is what they get for putting gays in the military.

“Maybe I’m missing something, information in leaks does not seem to live up to the reaction they are getting.”

My thoughts too.

Thank you.

LOL. Obama got the best of all worlds, Hillary looks like a fool, an openly gay soldier and complete transparency.

Hey Obama, how's that change coming?

These are the teasers. Wait till they start getting to the exchanges of money and weapons.

It is going to bring the whole US diplomatic corpse (sarc) to a grinding halt. You are right, no one will trust us for anything anymore. Kinda like when Obama blew out our CIA fellows and wanted them brought to court on charges. Let’s face it folks, between Obama and all the libtards now in the diplomatic corps, and our CIA hobbled and in shreds, this country is now the laughing stock of the world.
