    Abstract

    People around the world were treated to a virtually unprecedented media explosion when some 250,000 classified US documents, including secret diplomatic papers, were released online once again by WikiLeaks.This was despite various warnings, in particular by some Western governments, not to do so. Not surprisingly, many were quick to condemn the act — with some notable exceptions such as Israel — due to the raw and uncensored nature of the documents, which forced the governments to scramble for the damage-control button. One of the main concerns is that such a release will jeopardise the security of innocent people while many others consider such an act illegal. Others call the leaks a threat to democratic sovereignty and note that the information may not be that accurate or weak.
