As reported by Russian Reporter, according to the characteristics revealed by the website authors, former American Ambassador to Georgia John Teft "at the start of the war is generally very punctual but still mixes up Ossetian and Georgian villages subject to bombardment, misinterpreting the information".
According to the website, on August 7, Teft reported to Washington that the Georgian troops with the Grad-type weapons were moving towards Ossetia.
Besides, when the war broke out, Teft appeals to the US State Department asking to "draw up an agreed position as to what to answer those being unsure of "Georgia's absolute innocence".
According to the publication, "the reading of the American ambassadors' reports in Georgia, NATO, European Union and Moscow makes an impression that no one in the world had any illusions as to Saakashvili starting the war, including Poland and the Baltic States, though official rhetoric went against this conception".
Also, the documents stress the role of Germany in the North-Atlantic Alliance's failure to unanimously criticize Russia for the war in South Ossetia.
Let us remind you that on November 28, the WikiLeaks website published another portion of secret American documents mostly telling about the secret diplomatic negotiations. The portal revealed over 250 thousand letters of the American diplomats. The correspondence contains data on the US' foreign policy in respect of many countries, corruption and characteristics of the world leaders.
It should also be noted that Rustavi-2 TV channel reported that these secret documents include American diplomats' reports on Georgia. Some of them are related to the events of August 2008 in South Ossetia. It is noted that according to the documents published, Georgia had not been planning any military actions against the republic.
