    Pentagon Alerts House, Senate Panels to New Classified WikiLeaks Release

    The Pentagon warned the U.S. Senate and House Armed Services Committees that the website WikiLeaks.org “intends to release several hundred thousand” classified U.S. State Department cables as soon as Nov. 26.

    The documents “touch on an enormous range of very sensitive foreign policy issues,” Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs Elizabeth King wrote yesterday in an e-mail to the defense panels.
    King said The New York Times, the U.K.’s The Guardian and Der Spiegel of Germany “are each currently working with WikiLeaks to coordinate the release of these State Department documents.”

    Those State Department documents are what I have been most interested in since the Bradley Manning case came up. I find it hilarious that even with these documents they claim people could die.

    Makes you wonder how they're getting their hands on the info. Huh?

    Maybe this is what Obama meant by, "transparency".

    If the leaking of these materials causes disruptions in our relationships with our allies, it's actually incredibly easy to see how it could result in an undermining of our security and the deaths of US troops abroad.
