WikiLeaks morning disclose sensitive U.S. secrets

Washington, November 25 (PL) The Web site WikiLeaks morning reveal hundreds of thousands of classified State Department, information released today by the digital site Bloomberg.

According to the memo, the Pentagon warned Senate and House Armed Services Committees on the intention to WikiLeaks.

Also attributed to Elizabeth King, assistant secretary for legislative affairs, the story that the documents contain a "huge range of foreign policy issues very sensitive."

"We anticipate that the release could adversely affect U.S. foreign relations," King said in emails addressed to members of the Committees.

According to King, The New York Times, The Guardian, the UK and Der Spiegel, Germany, "WikiLeaks currently working to coordinate the release of these documents from the Department of State."

These three publications give early access to two earlier versions of WikiLeaks of U.S. military documents, one on July 25 on Afghanistan and another on October 22 on Iraq.

There were almost 400 000 documents related to the war in Iraq between 2003 and 2010, and 75 thousand on the war in Afghanistan in the same period.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman acknowledged yesterday in an interview that the Pentagon has become aware of this new launch WikiLeaks.

"We felt we had the responsibility to notify senior leaders with responsibility for oversight of the department, as we normally do," he said.

Meanwhile, State Department spokesman, Philip J. Crowley admitted the advance information of the website and said the government assesses the potential impact of such disclosure in U.S. diplomacy.
