London, 1 December 2010: At least one justification for the Wikileaks, which is to expose the US government's mismatched privately- and publicly-held diplomatic positions to minimize them in future, does make sense for India. On foreign policy, which has a public face like military strategy or intelligence-gathering may not, a democracy like India and the United States cannot take potentially conflicting covert and overt positions. Foreign policy is necessarily declarative and also conveys a statement of intents and possibilities. So the less the disconnect between private conversation and public action, the more the chances of those intents and possibilities transforming into realities. They also reduce room for Wikileaks-like exposes to damage foreign relations. The argument runs thus.
