Whistleblowing website WikiLeaks said Monday it was planning to publish nearly three million more secret documents in its next mass release of confidential material, according to its Twitter feed.

WikiLeaks did not say when the release would be, nor on what subject, but the number of documents would be seven times larger than its release last month when it posted some 400,000 secret documents about the war in Iraq on its site.

"Next release is 7x the size of the Iraq War Logs. intense pressure over it for months. Keep us strong," WikiLeaks said on its Twitter feed, adding a link to a donations website.

Wikileaks had said they were planning to leak info concerning Russia and China so I wonder if this is it. Perhaps it includes those State Department cables Bradley Manning apparently had.

Hopefully it is not too much to ask that they use some tact next time out.

This is turning into a publicity frenzy for themselves, and each time it happens I become more and more annoyed with this group. Apparently we are meant to feel empathy and perhaps sympathy for these people. I don't.

That seems like a silly reason to be angry about it. I mean, if people realize there is a resource available for all whistleblowers then they are more likely to use it and publicity is a part of that. What exactly do you mean "tact" though?

WikiLeaks' announcement comes just days after Sweden issued an international arrest warrant for the website's head, Australian Julian Assange, wanted for questioning related to rape and sexual molestation accusations.
Great news jail the bastard for life.
