Wikileaks’ Secret Cache Leaked
ABC World News, Dec. 22, 2010 by Devin Dwter

Norwegian paper could publish secret documents independent of Julian Assange.

“Norway’s main business newspaper reported Wednesday that the Aftenposten news service has obtained unfettered and unauthorized access to the entire cache of secret government documents held exclusively by Wikileaks and its founder, Julian Assange.

“If true, Aftenposten would be the only international news organization to have direct possession of the entire trove of U.S. diplomatic cables and military records believed to have been originally leaked by U.S. Army Private Bradley Manning.

“The paper does not reveal who leaked the documents from inside Wikileaks’ operations.

“I have no comments on how we have secured access to the documents. We never give our sources, even in this case,” Aftenposten news editor Ole Erik Almlid told the paper Dagens Naerings, according to a rough translation of his comments, which were in Norwegian.

“Until now, Wikileaks has selectively released roughly 2,000 of the more than quarter million controversial documents, disseminating them to the general public through a handful of news organizations, including The New York Times, Guardian and Der Spiegel newspapers.”

Well, it COULD have been worse. They could be publishing it in English. It won’t be too bad in Norwegian. How many people do YOU know who speak Norwegian?
