On Thursday the ACLU sued the State Department for failing to respond for the last two months to its Freedom of Information Act request for 23 memos that have already been released by WikiLeaks. Despite having been published last year by the secret-spilling group, those documents remain classified
It s not every year that classified histories of two wars and massive troves of diplomatic secrets appear in America s newspapers. So it may have surprised some to read through the list of Pulitzer prizes Monday and see no mention - among the winners or even the finalists - of wikiLeaks' revelations.
WikiLeaks has gone on the counterattack. A statement sent to me by spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson says that WikiLeaks is taking legal action against Domscheit-Berg, and accuses him of "various acts of sabotage."The former WikiLeaks staffer admits to having damaged the site's primary submission system and stolen material," the statement reads.
