Australia says US responsible for Wikileaks

Oz says the US is to blame for the release of diplomatic cables on Wikileaks.



Brisbane: The Australian government on Wednesday blamed the United States, not WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, for the unauthorised release of about 250,000 secret US diplomatic cables and said those who originally leaked the documents were legally liable.
Foreign minister Kevin Rudd also said the leaks raised questions over the "adequacy" of US security over the cables.

"Mr Assange is not himself responsible for the unauthorised release of 250,000 documents from the US diplomatic communications network," Rudd told a news agency in an interview.

"The Americans are responsible for that," said Rudd.
