Wikileaks Responds to Pentagon’s “Do the Right Thing”: More To Come

8 Aug, 2010

Geoff Morrel, the pentagon’s press secretary requested 2 days ago wikileaks to do “the right thing” and remove Afghanistan war secrets  logs 2004-2009. Something that has no meaning since the logs has been publicly available for around 20 days now in different digital formats.

However the Pentagon keeps demanding to cancel the sites plans of releasing more classified military documents.

Wikileaks spoksman responded by saying, that the site will keep publishing documents because that is what they do, as AP reported.

The spokesman who used the nick name name Daniel Schmitt to protect his real identity said that public knowledge about ongoing issues like the war in Afghanistan is the only way “to create something “like safety.” as the public scrutiny will influence governments to enforce better polices.

He also unveiled that the site requested from the white-house prior to the publishing of the war logs asking “International Security Assistance Force provide us with reviewers” but this request was rejected as the white-house  said they are not interested in “harm minimization.”

Schmitt reveled that the site founder Julian Asang works with 3 others on a full time bases and the site has between 800 to 1,000 volunteers around the world. The site is has also Arabic version that is yet not fully translated.

Wikileaks has announced recently plans to post new batch of “fresh leaks.”
