Polish Minister: US Alliance 'Worthless, Creates False Sense of Security'

A Polish magazine says it has obtained recordings of a conversation in which Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski says the country's strong alliance with the U.S. "isn't worth anything" and is "even harmful because it creates a false sense of security."

A short transcript of the conversation was released on Sunday by Wprost, a weekly magazine that set off a political storm last weekend with the publication of secret recordings of other top officials making compromising remarks.

In the transcript, a person that Wprost identifies as Sikorski tells former finance minister, Jacek Rostowski, that Poles naively believe the U.S. bolsters their security.

The Foreign Ministry says it won't comment until the entire conversation has been released. Wprost says it will publish the sound files of the recording Monday.
