Many experts are pointing out the risks WikiLeaks has created for U.S. foreign policy and the lives of U.S. officials and their allies in releasing secret foreign policy documents. And none of the experts carries more authority than Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, according to a Politico.com report.

“What I don't think those who are in charge of WikiLeaks understand is we live in a world where just a little bitty piece of information can be added to a network of information and really open up an understanding that just wasn't there before. So it continues to be extremely dangerous.”

He points out that Wiki put the lives of U.S. and allied troops in Afghanistan in danger and harms our relations with other countries.
