Update: Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. said the Justice Department will prosecute anyone found to have violated U.S. law in the leaks, the Associated Press reported.”To the extent that we can find anybody who was involved in the breaking of American law, who put at risk the assets and the people I have described, they will be held responsible; they will be held accountable,” Holder said at a news conference, according to the AP. He called the WikiLeaks probe “an active, ongoing criminal investigation.”

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) is urging Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. to designate WikiLeaks as a “foreign terrorist organization”, saying it “posed a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States,” the New York Daily News reported.

The request came  as the White House condemned the leak, saying some who help the U.S. abroad could be harmed, the paper reported.

WikiLeaks published 250,000 diplomatic cables from classified projects, exposing back-channel communications, some embarrassing to the U.S., foreign nations and individuals.

The Daily News reported that the leaks included information that Saudi Arabia has urged the U.S. to launch air strikes on Iran’s nuclear program.

“Cut off the head of the snake,” the Saudi ambassador to Washington urged Gen. David Petraeus, who commands U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
