PCMagazine: WikiLeaks has released all 251,000 of the U.S. diplomatic cables in its possession, without editing out the names of sources in the documents. The move could place the individuals named in the cables in danger.

Previously, several newspapers had been working with WikiLeaks to publish the cables a few at a time after names had been redacted, but they have condemned this latest release. “We deplore the decision of WikiLeaks to publish the unredacted State Department cables, which may put sources at risk,” they said in a statement. “Our previous dealings with WikiLeaks were on the clear basis that we would only publish cables which had been subjected to a thorough editing and clearance process. We will continue to defend our collaborative publishing endeavor."
