Julian Assange, the Editor-in-Chief of the whistle blowing site responded to the U.S. State Department’s request with a letter to Louis B Susman, who is the U.S. Ambassador to Britain. In the letter, the WikiLeaks head reiterated that the manner in which the U.S government has reacted to the prospect of releasing the documents, confirms that it intends to suppress the evidences that hint at human rights abuse as well as other criminal behavior.
In the meanwhile, the U.S. State Department legal adviser Harold Hongju Koh has pointed out that the U.S. government would not indulge in negotiation about the further publishing of classified U.S government documents that have been obtained by the WikiLeaks in an illegal manner.
