Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange Warned by U.S. Defense Department Over Latest Cache

Wikileaks editor in chief Julian Assange promises to publish the latest cache of diplomatic dispatches from the U.S. government despite warnings from the Defense Department. The latest links involve classified information which could severely compromise the safety of U.S. citizens and military operations.

Assange intends to publish the dispatch information on Sunday night through multiple media sources, including The New York Times, the UK newspaper The Guardian, German magazine Der Spiegel, Spain's El Pais, and France's La Monde, as well as other sources within European countries.

Visitors to the Wikileaks site are presently encountering a DDOS or distributed denial of service issues. Insiders insist the DDOS is a result of an attempt to thwart the leak of information the U.S. State Department's legal adviser insists was "provided in violation of U.S. law and without regard for the grave consequences of this action."

Wikileaks posted via Twitter on Monday "Next release is 7x the Iraq War Logs...Intense pressure over it for months. Keep us strong." The latest cache of Wikileaks presumably includes confidential communications between the U.S. State Department and well over 297 embassies, consulates, and missions known as "cables."
