10. Rahul Gandhi’s Remark on Hindu Extremists:
In 2009, US ambassador, Timothy Roemer was introduced to the “Radicalized Hindu Group” by Rahul Gandhi, General Secretary of the Indian National Congress. According to Mr. Gandhi, Hindu extremists can create political encounters as well as religious tensions with the Islamic community in India. This secret discussion was held at the residence of Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, where Hillary Clinton was invited on a dinner. However, Indian National Congress tried its best to make this issue a “closed chapter” but he was severely slammed by the opposition and was described as the supporting element of Pakistan. This revelation of WikiLeaks was enough to propel a great stir on the political landscape of India.
9. U.S. Diplomats Making Mockery of World Leaders:
This whistle-blowing revelation of WikiLeaks was enough to disclose the obnoxious faces of American diplomats.

6. U.S. Policy To Remove Highly Enriched Uranium from Pakistani Nuclear Reactor:
According to a major revelation of WikiLeaks, the United States was skeptical over the security of Pakistani nuclear material.

5. Apprehension Over Iran’s Nuclear Program:
