This is Probably Not Going to Help King Hamad

As Yossi Melman notes in today's Haaretz, according to the latest Wikileaks cable leaks, King Hamad of Bahrain reportedly boasted to the US Ambassador in 2005 of Bahrain's relations with Israel in the intelligence field.

I can't find the cable in question on Wikileaks yet, and Haaretz says it's an exclusive. But King Hamad probably won't welcome this right now.
