The Face That Launched a Thousand Ships and Burnt the Topless Towers of Ilium

United States blamed Anna Nicole Smith for collapse of Nassau government, WikiLeaks cable show - "Us diplomats blamed Anna Nicole Smith for bringing the government of the Bahama government of the Bahamas close to collapse, according to cables released yesterday by WikiLeaks.

'Not since Category 4 Hurricane Betsy made landfall in 1965 has one woman done as much damage in Nassau,' said one November 2006 document, apparently written by Deputy Chief of Mission D. Brent Hardt.

The cables said a quickie grant of permanent Bahamian residency to the ill-fated former Playboy playmate led to the ouster of a top government minister while the alleged bungling of her son's treatment and death cut short the careers of other officials."
