LONDON (AP) — WikiLeaks spokesman Julian Assange said Thursday his organization is preparing to release the remaining secret Afghan war documents it has.
Assange said his organization is about halfway through those 15,000 secret files obtained by WikiLeaks. He gave no specific time frame but assured an audience at London’s Frontline Club that the files would be posted on the Internet.
The whistle-blower group has said the remaining documents were being held back from publication so that it could comb through them to ensure Afghan lives were not put at risk.
Mr. Assange, whose group already has released 77,000 secret Afghan war documents, spoke to the club via videolink. He said he had “no comment” about his current whereabouts.
