Wikileaks Releases More Information From State Department

The Obama administration is reeling over the latest leak by a whistleblowing web site.

Wikileaks released more than a quarter of a million cables from the State Department Sunday, many of which contained sensitive information and embarrassing assessments of world leaders.

The White House calls the leak reckless and dangerous.

It contains startling revelations from the State Department including suspicions Iran has obtained powerful missiles from North Korea and that the Saudi king has repeatedly pressured the U.S. to attack Tehran's nuclear program.

But, the information could prove more embarrassing than damaging.

Officials said the material includes unflattering comments about Americas enemies and allies.

The White House warns field reporting in the documents is often incomplete and does not necessarily reflect the shape of U.S. policy decisions.
