Kim Ghattas and her pro-Saudi propaganda in Foreign Policy

Here Ms. Ghattas propagandizes on why the cables should not embarrass the Saudi royal family: "There are no calls to cut off anyone’s head in the Saudi cables".  Does this not remind you of the those neo-Nazis who maintain that Hitler was treated unfairly because there was no order for the Holocaust which bears his name?
And then she says: "Lebanon’s Al-Akhbar, which conveniently omitted any details about Iran’s aggressive behavior in the region relayed in the same cables." What on earth is she talking about here, when Al-Akhbar provided links to the documents and printed some of them in full? Or is she asking why Al-Akhbar does not parrot Saudi and Hariri propaganda like she does--not to mention her hagiography of Hillary Clinton.
