Seen in the Wikileaks dump

Here's a memo relating a conversation between a State Department official and the then-head of CSIS, Jim Judd. Judd expresses concern about the about-to-be-released video of Omar Khadr's interrogation by Canadian officials. The specific concern was that:
...the images would no doubt trigger
"knee-jerk anti-Americanism" and "paroxysms of moral outrage,
a Canadian specialty," as well as lead to a new round of
heightened pressure on the government to press for Khadr's
return to Canada.
But not to worry, reassured Judd. The Canadian government could hold firm on being deaf to the concerns of citizens.

What else we got?
