Researcher: WikiLeaks Has Damaged American Power

Professor Inderjeet Parmar of the University of Manchester delivered a paper recently that concluded the WikiLeaks exposure of secret diplomatic cables has damaged American power.

Parmar's paper, apparently the first academic study on the effects of the publication of the cables, contradicts some in the Obama Administration who have tried to downplay the effects of the information breach and said the cables do no serious or long-lasting harm.

President Obama has been weakened both domestically and internationally, Parmar said. It is now up to the Obama Administration to respond if it is believed his analysis or conclusions are in error.
