"WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has defended the organisation's release of all 251,000 secret US diplomatic cables that it held without the redaction of the names of informants mentioned in them. In an interview with New Scientist, Assange said the leak publishing outfit's usual editorial 'harm minimisation' procedures had become irrelevant after other websites published the full text of the unredacted cables."
