HECK, THAT'S THE PARTY LINE:

Der Spiegel: WikiLeaks say Ahmadinejad dubbed 'Hitler' (INN, 11.28.10)

The Cover of the German magazine Der Spiegel was leaked online, revealing initial classified US information which is expected to be exposed on WikiLeaks. So far it has been published that the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was called "Hitler", the French President
Nicolas Sarkozy was nicknamed "the emperor with no clothes", and Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai is "driven by paranoia".

The Iran Plans: Would President Bush go to war to stop Tehran from getting the bomb? (Seymour M. Hersh, April 17, 2006, The New Yorker)
There is a growing conviction among members of the United States military, and in the international community, that President Bush’s ultimate goal in the nuclear confrontation with Iran is regime change. Iran’s President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has challenged the reality of the Holocaust and said that Israel must be “wiped off the map.” Bush and others in the White House view him as a potential Adolf Hitler, a former senior intelligence official said. “That’s the name they’re using. They say, ‘Will Iran get a strategic weapon and threaten another world war?’

It's not just America that looks golden in these leaks, but, given that there are no surprises, the Press comes off pretty well too.
