Pentagon warns news WikiLeaks release could do damage

The Pentagon is warning members of Congress that U.S. relations with its allies could be damaged if the whistleblower group WikiLeaks carries out its plan to publish more classified records on the Internet.

A Defense Department official said the records are U.S. State Department documents containing information on military matters. WikiLeaks indicated Monday it is preparing to release the classified documents soon.

In October, WikiLeaks released nearly 400,000 U.S. military reports about operations in Iraq. In July, it released more than 70,000 reports about the war in Afghanistan. American soldier Bradley Manning is being held in a military jail in Quantico, Virginia, in relation to information which has appeared on WikiLeaks site.

The latest leak was revealed on the group's Twitter page.

"Next release is 7x the size of the Iraq War Logs. Intense pressure over it for months. Keep us strong." FULL STORY

    Lets recommend that Aussie for Nobel peace prize. It looks like he is the western dissident and now is the time to give Nobel peace prize to a dissident.

    “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops."

    –Jesus, in Luke 12:1-3
