Clinton Calls WikiLeaks' Documents An 'Attack' On The World

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton publicly condemned "those responsible" and warned that retribution was coming over Wikileak's publication of a quarter of a million leaked documents from United States embassies around the world.

She also said that the State Department was increasing its security measures to safeguard its documents.

"The United States strongly condemns the illegal disclosure of classified information ... This disclosure is not just an attack on America’s foreign policy interests. It is an attack on the international community – the alliances and partnerships, the conversations and negotiations, that safeguard global security and advance economic prosperity," Clinton said. "I want you to know that we are taking aggressive steps to hold responsible those who stole this information. I have directed that specific actions be taken at the State Department, in addition to new security safeguards at the Department of Defense and elsewhere to protect State Department information."

The WikiLeaks site explains that on Sunday, November 28, 2010, WikiLeaks "began publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into the US Government's foreign activities."

The cables date from 1966 to February, 2010, and contain "confidential communications" between 274 embassies and the State Department in Washington DC. "15,652 of the cables are classified Secret," WikiLeaks said.

Clinton apologized to the world's diplomats for the public exposure of documents that were "intended to be confidential, including private discussions between counterparts or our diplomats’ personal assessments and observations."

Clinton says that U.S. policy, which is set in Washington, is a matter of public record, even though specific documents are not. The New York Times reported that one of the leaked cables reveals information into the famed attack on Google and other U.S. companies by Chinese hackers last December. The cable linked China’s political leaders to the ‘Operation Aurora’ cyber-attacks.

WikiLeaks is on a roll with this latest disclosure. On October 22, it released nearly 400, 000 documents (known as 'The Iraq War Logs'), that tell the story of the war in Iraq from January 1, 2004, through December, 2009, as told by soldiers in the United States Army. It released similar documents on the war in Afghanistan.

Here is Clinton's speech in its entirety.

If you think the Illuminati doesn't exist,you obivoiusly havn't lived or experienced these people yet.

Your probably to busy player computer games or with mother boards etc to see whats going on outside in the real world.

Wikileaks Support  Devil  Is this for real Wikileaks Support!!!! and  (Illuminati) Have you been watching Angels and Demons too too much my friend!

Personally I dont really care what Wikileaks puts out to the public!  But when you leak info  that undermines and puts the security of this Great Nation at risk and our soldiers and all Americans abroard  for no  other reason than to increase your readership and get your name on the front page of the New York Times I do have a problem with that..America is at WAR with terrorist that want to KILL  US ALL and Wikileaks thinks it is to the publics interest which now the Public is apparently the Whole World  needs to see what we are doing to protect ourselves and our Allies from destruction from a very determined enemy. Wikileaks has certainly acheived their goal and gave your    ( Illuminati ) a hand up!!!  Since Wiki is so interested in informing the world of ongoing information that they beleive is in the publics interest why dont you spend a little more time investigating and really do something usefull and tell us all where (Bin Ladin) is!!!!!!!

Government officials would call that 'treason', because it would tip off Bin Laden to move.

But... they at least told us that we already knew where Bin Laden was.  The CIA apparently knew he was attending monthly meetings with the Taliban in 2006, and failed to make use of the information:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1297916/Wikileaks-reveals-Osama-Bin-Laden-seen-village-meetings.html

http://articles.cnn.com/2010-07-27/world/afghanistan.wikileaks.bin.laden_1_tora-bora-bin-laden-al-qaeda-leader?_s=PM:WORLD

Reports on other wikileaks say that In 2007, Musharraf told John McCain that he believed Bin Laden was in Bajaur:  http://tribune.com.pk/story/84889/wikileaks-musharraf-believed-bin-laden-was-in-bajaur.  Of course, I wouldn't blame McCain for not believing Musharraf.  It's just as possible that we haven't found him because the Pakastani government is actively hiding him to keep the aid money flowing in.  Other leaks report that Pakistan is scared that we'll just bail out of the region if we ever do catch Bin Laden, so there's some logic to the theory.

Sorry guys,but the only tin foil hats are being worn on American heads,you choose to think your government policies are the right ones, for peoples sake, look at vietnam,look at korea, look at every bloody thing your government tries to control, it turns to absolute s.h.i.t .

There is no Bin Laden, Bin Laden is the American Government, WOOL OVER YOUR EYES , your blinded by absolute bullshit.

The Twin trade towers were master minded by your own country men, to recontrol stock,stop counting the zero's of your hard drives & take a real look.

Hey I don't give a rats if you don't wake up,theres already enough of us to change whats going on.

Glad to be not you when I'm aiming at you.You are the peoples enemy.

I think that all WikiLeaks has accomplished is that now many of the governments of the world are out to stop them, squash them. Smash them.

They'll get it done too, now that they're really interested in doing so. WikiLeaks is the red headed stepchild of the world now, because they've pissed off too many people with real power.

Truly Arrogant,....

It may, or may not be right, I'm still thinking about that, but it will happen.

You may be right about getting the attention, albeit negative attention of so many groups but there is always going to be that fringe demographic who is always trying to stick it to the man.  They will be vocal enough and have great enough numbers to make sure that this bus crash stays around for a very long time.

I see positive things coming out of Wiki Leaks but also negative things.  I truly am on the fence when it comes to the site and what they do but at this point I see it as a huge waste of resources on both sides.

Those resources could be used for something far better like trying to take care of those in our own back yards.

Well I do play with motherboards, both as a hobby and to earn extra money to support my family. But I have quite a desire to stay on top of the news, and if what's going on in the real world wasn't important to me then I wouldn't be in this wonderful conversation with you! Illuminati is a new term for me, and I am really glad that you popped-in to inform us that a secret society actually runs the United States. Now I suppose I shouldn't bother to go vote anymore - not! You, my friend, are one of those conspiracy-theorists! I'd really like to know your views on the Holocaust and the moon landings, too, if you wouldn't mind.

@ Super Dave, The Holocaust is a terrible event that was cause by another section of Illuminati,The Third Reich.

The Illuminati has German Origins dating back to approx 1770.The moon landing was a great race,which still hasn't been beaten.

There my views Dave & if that makes me a conspiracy theorists,well Dave your very confused because those are facts.Because Illuminati is a new term for you you choose to label me a conspiracy theorist,Illuminati has been around longer than the USA,it is actually linked to your independance.

By  the way,were do you live USA oh thats right,funny that.Also your God Fearing Churches are also controlled by the same people,speaking of conspiracy theories,GOD,JESUS  great best selling book the bible,great stories or actually theories that have never been proven.

So just because you are uneducated on the subject,please don't ridicule others that are,thanks Dave & do yourself a favour & educated yourself on the matter.

Have a Nice Day.

These actions taken by wiki and whatever counterparts are nothing more and nothing less than a conspiracy to incite hate, mistrust among nations in an already dangerous world, that gets more dangerous everyday. We all that are interested in  world events knew this day and many more were coming!

But instead of waging war just on the battlefield they have a broader outlet at their disposal and thats on the airways of the net.

                                  This is Cyber Terrorism.

I'm getting quite an education here, thanks! I see that your IP address is located near Melbourne in Australia, and since you have chosen the user name Wikileaks Support I have to wonder if you are somehow affiliated with Mr. Assange and his Wikileaks organization. Would you care to elaborate on how you became such a staunch supporter?

The treason reference applies to US Army intelligence specialist Bradley Manning, Jonation. Manning, who appears to have become unhinged whilst dealing with his own personal demons (see HERE) could conceivably spend 52 years in prison for leaking thousands of secret military documents.

And, since Wikileaks is basically a news organization and not an enemy combatant, the "treason" talk is ridiculous.

They could totally hang his ass for espionage though, even if he is being hailed by the BBC and other foreign press as conscientiously revealing an extreme corruption of our principals in the operations of our military and government.

I think we'll be judged better by history if we fix the actual problem. rather than shooting the smart-ass you-got-punked messengers.  The population's increasing; leaks will increase; better to not have any wrongdoings worth leaking... unless you want the government to progress to the point where we have telescreens and thoughtcrimes.

We felt sorry for the Chinese, whose government didn't allow them access to the international press.  Who will feel sorry for us?

If our countries leaders actually spoke to each other truthfully instead of all this cloak and dagger BS ....well you can figure the rest out yourself. Anyone remember when being an elected official was considered to be an honorable and respected profession? I can't either.

Wikileaks is a whistleblowing organization. They call out people. This will obviously incite angst against them, especially here. If you don't like what could happen when they release the information, then do not support those who are being brought up in the cables. The subjects of the cables are the ones who are hurting our country.

Anyway, the organization is a messenger. They take the heat so the individual, can be free. This is true for many of the leaks about China- that we (the US) supported and loved in the past. However, now that it's on us- we forge documents and pay 2 random women to claim they've been raped-but not really-actually he just didnt wear a condom- well he started with one but it broke or something...

If you think the world is a marvelous place, then you have been brought up in the most delusional, idealistic, and optimistic environment- American Culture. People who were surprised by terrorist attacks against us, obviously never read their history book. Or were somehow convinced that all of the money and weapons and hate we pumped in the Middle East, never happened.

Every country has secrets, I think that keeping those and avoiding the proper/just repercussions is wrong. How can we progress when we hide the wrongs we did, and don't make true amends? Avoiding it and pretending nothing happened, only incites more hatred towards us. And I personally don't want to be on the other end of that wrath. I do not support any form of aggression on another human being, I do not support the actions that result in hatred towards us.

Support good and honest people. You have to do research, and you may have to donate time/money. But it is worth it.
