U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said Wednesday that the department is in touch with its diplomatic posts around the world, which have begun informing foreign governments that a new WikiLeaks release is possible in the near future.
The spokesman said the revelations will likely create tensions between the United States and allies around the world.
In October, WikiLeaks released nearly 400,000 classified U.S. documents on the Iraq war, and in July it posted 77,000 secret U.S. files on the Afghanistan conflict. The website is also believed to have another 15,000 Afghan war field reports, 260,000 diplomatic cables, and U.S. video of casualties in Afghanistan.
