its danger for usa and Pakistan Govt to leak
Newspapers in Europe and the United States began publishing details of tens of thousands of confidential U.S. diplomatic documents Sunday, spawning condemnation from the White House and congressional leaders.

The documents had been released in advance to The New York Times and to four European newspapers by the online whistleblower website WikiLeaks, which reported its servers were published.

Many of the documents detail conversations on sensitive issues between American officials and leaders in the Middle East, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs condemned the release, warning that publishing the documents would jeopardize "our diplomats, intelligence professionals, and people around the world who come to the United States for assistance in promoting democracy and open government."

"By releasing stolen and classified documents, Wikileaks has put at risk not only the cause of human rights but also the lives and work of these individuals," Gibbs said. "We condemn in the strongest terms the unauthorized disclosure of classified documents and sensitive national security information."

he issue of how to handle Iran was the subject of many documents in the leak. But the documents also include discussions of Pakistan's nuclear program, attacks on suspected al Qaeda operatives in Yemen, reports of China's involvement in cyber-espionage and efforts to persuade other governments to take prisoners from the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Sen. John Kerry the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called the disclosure "reckless."

"This is not an academic exercise about freedom of information and it is not akin to the release of the Pentagon Papers, which involved an analysis aimed at saving American lives and exposing government deception," Kerry, D-Massachusetts, said in a written statement.

"Instead, these sensitive cables contain candid assessments and analysis of ongoing matters and they should remain confidential to protect the ability of the government to conduct lawful business with the private candor that's vital to effective diplomacy," the statement said.

The documents posted include candid and often unfavorable commentaries on a varietyof international leaders, as well as coverage of almost every major issue of recent years. The United States had warned WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange that publishing the papers would be illegal and endanger peoples' lives.

Rep. Peter King, the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, on Sunday called on the Obama administration to prosecute Assange. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder King said WikiLeaks has provided "material support to terrorist organizations" by releasing the documents.
