Title- U.S.-Brazil: business on diplomacy
Op-ed in business oriented Valor Econtmico (8-10) states:

tariff against the Brazilian ethanol and differences on trade
negotiations at the World Trade Organization. Now, the
U.S.-Colombia military deal, criticized in Brasilia, adds to the
list. But the political relations between the two governments are
doing well, and Washington is even trying to take trade advantages

Supertucanos [when the U.S. blocked Brazil from selling the planes
to Venezuela] created a [level of] distrust where the U.S. could go
back on its word if there is a change in the administration there,

effort at rapprochement from both sides is visible....."
This website hosts an archive of all 251,287 US Embassy diplomatic cables that were released by WikiLeaks between November 28, 2010 and September 2, 2011.
While the cables are generally available at http://wikileaks.org/cablegate.html
, we find it hard to search or even navigate the site to read the cables.
We have made all 251,287 cables available here at Dazzlepod with the hope to make it easier for readers to browse, search, share and discuss about the released cables.
The cables are periodically selected and posted to our Twitter page
and Facebook page
for readers to review them.
