Wikileaks hints at diplomatic cable release "7 times" greater than Iraq War Logs


The Pentagon today warned lawmakers that WikiLeaks, working together with various news organizations, may publish a "tranche" of classified U.S. State Department cables as early as Friday, Nov. 26. In an e-mail today to the Senate and House Armed Services Committees, Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs Elizabeth King said the documents "touch on an enormous range of very sensitive foreign policy issues," adding, "We anticipate that the release could negatively impact U.S. foreign relations," and "We will brief you once we have a better understanding of what documents the WikiLeaks publication contains."
