Ros-Lehtinen: Wikileaks release "extremely irresponsible," endangers lives

U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen today condemned the Wikileaks release, saying:
This latest release of classified and other sensitive U.S. documents by Wikileaks is extremely irresponsible. Those who leak and publish such information are doing great harm to our nation, and are potentially putting American lives in danger.
This newest batch of documents appears to contain troves of classified reports related to our nation’s conduct of diplomacy and foreign policy, including reports of critical discussions with our allies. This is the everyday work-product of our officials all over the globe. This critical and highly sensitive information must be managed carefully.
It is deeply disturbing that a few individuals seem to have deemed themselves worthy of deciding that scores of classified and sensitive material should be paraded about for our enemies to review and use against us. These leaks come at the expense of U.S. security and, potentially, American lives.
