Looks like is in great toxicity.

The U.S. Department of Defense had demanded WikiLeaks to return all the related to the in Afghanistan. In a press briefing, representative and spokesperson Geoff Morrell said that is not to be played with. It is demanding their documents to be returned or they will find ways to “compel them to do the right things.”

“We want whatever they have returned to us and we want whatever copies they have expunged. We demand that they do the right thing. If doing the right thing is not good enough for them, then we will figure out what alternatives we have to compel them to do the right thing.”

WikiLeaks made it big when they published more than 90,000 military reports. Almost all of them are top secret and contains the whereabouts of the war with Afghanistan. The information from the said documents were published on The New York Times, The Guardian (UK) and Der Spiegel (Germany) Organizations are still sifting on documents as of now, this includes Pentagon.

This wasn’t the first time that and WikiLeaks had a hot clash. Last week, a security research and programmer named Jacob Appelbaum was detained briefly by the U.S. Authorities due to his involvement in the controversial site. The latter’s mobile phones were also confiscated.

Insiders from the government also informed the man behind WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, that he could be arrested when he steps on U.S. Territory.

For all this commotion WikiLeaks remains calm. From the WikiLeaks twitter account, they mentioned that Pentagon’s words were “obnoxious”.
