WikiLeaks: the cartoon

Watch: the US embassy cables leak in animated form.

Regular readers will know that I'm a big fan of Taiwan's Apple Daily, who memorably brought us "Bullygate": the movie and, more recently, Sarah Palin's life in animated form.

So I'm pleased to see that they've taken up the challenge of dramatising the US cables leak. Highlights include Mahmoud Ahmadinejad morphing into Hitler, Colonel Gaddafi enjoying time with his "voluptuous blonde" nurse and Vladimir Putin getting the horse's head treatment.
