According to an NPR report, Australian officials are investigating whether WikiLeaks broke any laws. Julian Assange, WikiLeaks' founder, is Australian.
The release has brought on outrage from the U.S. government, particularly from the State Department, a subject of some of the WikiLeaks coverage.
"It is an attack on the international community," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a video from CNN. "We are taking aggressive steps ... so that this kind of breach cannot, and does not, ever happen again.
"I'm aware that some may mistakenly applaud those responsible, so I want to set the record straight. There is nothing laudable about endangering innocent people."
According to the NPR article, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the Justice Department is also investigating the case and will prosecute if they come across violations of U.S. law.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said in a press conference that President Barack Obama "was — as an understatement — not pleased."
However, WikiLeaks officials state their case on their website: "Publishing improves transparency, and this transparency creates a better society for all people. Better scrutiny leads to reduced corruption and stronger democracies in all society's institutions, including government, corporations and other organisations. A healthy, vibrant and inquisitive journalistic media plays a vital role in achieving these goals. We are part of that media."
The New York Times, in its own way, agrees. Editors have chosen to publish the information given to them by WikiLeaks this week.
"As daunting as it is to publish such material over official objections, it would be presumptuous to conclude that Americans have no right to know what is being done in their name," the newspaper said.
In an interview with CNN, Kristinn Hrafnsson, spokesperson for WikiLeaks, put it simply.
"People have the right to know what their governments are up to," he said.
