By its very nature, field reporting to Washington is candid and often raw information. It is preliminary and often incomplete. It is not an expression of policy, nor does it always shape final policy decisions, the US Embassy to Bucharest statement about the information leaks reads.
Sites of several newspapers like New York Times,El Pais, The Guardian or Le Monday started to publish documents of over 250,000 secret files of the American diplomatic correspondence offered by Wikileaks. According to The Guardian or El Pais, the whole package contains about 800 cables sent from the US Embassy to Bucharest but the documents were not made public.
The US Embassy to Bucharest Statement:
"Our government engages in the drafting and transmission of cables as an efficient form of global communication. By its very nature, field reporting to Washington is candid and often raw information. It is preliminary and often incomplete. It is not an expression of policy, nor does it always shape final policy decisions. Our government takes security very seriously, which is why our communications are often classified. We are taking aggressive action to ensure that our systems and private communications are secure. Several steps have been taken in recent weeks and months to enhance the security of our systems and to prevent the leak of information. The Department of State does not comment on materials, including classified documents, which may have been leaked. We condemn in the strongest terms the unauthorized disclosure of classified documents and sensitive national security information. By releasing stolen and classified documents, Wikileaks has put at risk not only the cause of human rights but also the lives and work of these individuals. President Obama supports responsible, accountable, and open government at home and around the world, but this reckless and dangerous action runs counter to that goal."
