WikiLeaks: Breach has exposed unredacted US cables
WikiLeaks says all its US diplomatic cables have been exposed, blames newspaper for breach
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) ' Anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks says that its massive archive of unredacted U.S. State Department cables has been exposed in a security breach. The files now appear to be circulating freely around the Web, and WikiLeaks is blaming a British newspaper.

In a 1,600-word-long editorial posted to the Internet early Friday morning, WikiLeaks accused the Guardian newspaper's investigative reporter David Leigh of divulging the password needed to decrypt the files in a book published earlier this year.

The Guardian and Leigh have both denied wrongdoing.

U.S. officials have said that the disclosure of the entire unredacted archive could have potentially serious consequences for informants, activists and others quoted in the cables.
