The US Embassy in Colombo said that classified information to be released by the whistle blowing website ‘Wikileaks’ not only has harmful implications for the lives of identified individuals but will also jeopardized global engagement among and between nations.

Issuing a statement Spokesman for U.S. Embassy Colombo Glen Davis said:

“The Department of State does not comment on materials, including classified documents, which may have been leaked. Any unauthorized disclosure of classified information by Wikileaks has harmful implications for the lives of identified individuals that are jeopardized, but also for global engagement among and between nations.

Given its potential impact, we condemn such unauthorized disclosures and are taking every step to prevent future security breaches.  While we cannot speak to the authenticity of any documents provided to the press, we can speak to the diplomatic community’s practice of cable writing.  Cables reflect the internal day-to-day analysis and candid assessments that feed the government’s foreign relations deliberations. These cables are often preliminary and incomplete expressions of foreign policy, and they should not be seen as having standing on their own or as representing U.S. policy.”

    Ibnu Batuta Tuesday, 30 November 2010 11:47 AM

    Why can't this be US's deliberate leak...?

    Ibnu Batuta Tuesday, 30 November 2010 11:53 AM

    These leaks show who are real terrorists.
    one and a half million in Iraq and several hundred thousand in Afghanistan, mostly women and children, have been massacred, you know by whom. So you want to thank the terrorist. This shows your mindset.

    Sherlock holmes Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:04 PM

    by the way the US.Govt has nothing to do with wikileaks; which is an independent organization having the freedom to report anything to the public - thats called freedom of expression !

    Prasanna Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:59 PM

    There are 3000 odd documents about Srilanka it seems? could you publish them for people's information?

    keerthi wijesinghe Tuesday, 30 November 2010 08:29 AM

    It is the duty of all the stake holders to act wisely and with responsibility.

    namal Tuesday, 30 November 2010 08:30 AM

    People want the transparency from US. So pl. publish in your paper.

    Gayan Samarasekara Tuesday, 30 November 2010 08:31 AM

    "we condemn such unauthorized disclosures and are taking every step to prevent future security breaches"--- fun at its best. Why can't US respect the other nations and work in a more democratic framework without engaging such nasty conspiracies against other countries......?

    Saman/South Africa Tuesday, 30 November 2010 08:50 AM

    Thanks to ‘Wikileaks’.The Whole world would know how dirty people are they when its come for there benefits.I read some of the cables regarding Iran it was amazing.

    lankaputha Tuesday, 30 November 2010 08:53 AM

    By looking at the last sentence of the report.. I am wondering whether a Minister of SL is talking on behalf of US embassy, cause it says the same words, it is not goverments view.

    nala3 Tuesday, 30 November 2010 05:06 PM

    USA should hire Sri Lankan experts to suppress such leaks, if they really want!

    spark Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:03 AM

    Yeah very true, at the same time we also require transparency from Sri Lanka for all the accussations of genocide of tamils.

    Srimal Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:15 AM

    hik.... US being exposed and now they talking about how that can harm nations. .. How many nations destroyed by US?. all these can be seen in wikileaks.org.

    Shame US !!! Shame..!!

    TMA Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:20 AM

    Leaking of these type of security information may benefit Bin Laden as well

    Ranjith Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:26 AM

    Gayan Samarasekara - If US is not democratic why do people go to US and other western countries for a better life, rather than going to China, North Korea, Myanmar or Iran who are our best friends

    Ajith Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:28 AM

    I just imagine, if there is an organization like wikileaks in SL and reveals SL goverment secretes, what will happen to them?

    Hideout Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:30 AM

    How many of these ministers knows how to debate about these matters.they live in kouku land. don't expect much from these idiots

    AJ - DXB Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:42 AM

    Julian Paul Assange is the 2nd most wanted terrorist next to Osama Bin Laden, although both individuals carry two type of weapons

    keep China away my man. China is respecting everybody and please visit China to see by yourself. Similarly, Please visit USA, and see by yourself, how they suck your money, your blood, your labor out to give you little freedom that you seek during your best life of 40 living years. the best is our country Sri Lanka.

    DONT LOOK UP AND SPIT!

    Modawansa Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:47 AM

    imagine what would have happened to Wikileaks’ if they were in the land of the king???????
    ha..... ha......... haaaaaaaa++++

    apsara Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:50 AM

    Back door hand of CIA should be there as their sole intention to make other countries fight each other and benefit out of it. By leaking the mesaages (still the authenticity to be verified), they want Saudi and Iran to fight each other and they may sided with Saudi to sell their arms and save their interest in Saudi.

    In this scenario both countries should be alert and find out the true enemy, and get together against the common enemy.

    In my opinion People hate USA because of there success, don’t be skeptic. Think about if the Irena and other Muslim countries start building nuclear weapon. What happen if this weapons end up with terrorist’s hand, how disaster is that one. Every one know Muslims have entirely different mind set about there region. I don’t have to go far to explain about there behavior, recently they gave death sentenced to 25 year girl because she is having fare with some one, not just a death sentenced (stoned to death). So we must thanks to USA to protecting entire world from such a disaster.

    Finally truths revealed. The big powers always bully and interfere with affairs of developing and under developed nations- this is not new now only became public.

    spark Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:40 AM

    The Wikileaks in Sri Lanka were Lasantha, Ekneligoda, Taraki etc...now you know what happened to them.

    Modawansa Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:41 AM
