(Newser) – Can't seem to make sense of the reams of information released by WikiLeaks? Haikuleaks can help. One enterprising soul has run the entirety of the diplomatic cables through a HaikuFinder program, which searches for sentences that naturally fall within the 5-7-5 pattern intrinsic to haiku, Geekosystem reports. Examples:

King Hamad flatly
stated that Bahrain is not
happy with Qatar.

The current tensions
demonstrate just how little
progress has been made.

"We have made request
after request," he said, "Why
doesn't the US respond?"

As is typical,
the Pope stayed above the fray
and did not comment. - Haikuleaks
