Unredacted US embassy cables available online after WikiLeaks breachGuardian denies allegation in WikiLeaks statement that journalist disclosed passwords to archive

By James Ball, The Guardian, September 1, 2011

Unredacted US embassy cables have been made available online after a security breach. A security breach has led to the WikiLeaks archive of 251,000 secret US diplomatic cables being made available online, without redaction to protect sources. WikiLeaks has been releasing the cables over nine months by partnering with mainstream media organisations. Selected cables have been published without sensitive information that could lead to the identification of informants or other at-risk individuals. The US government warned last year that such a release could lead to US informants, human rights activists and others being placed at risk of harm or detention. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/sep/01/unredacted-us-embassy-cables-online
