Wikileaks plans to release classified U.S. diplomatic cables revealing corruption allegations against foreign governments and leaders, says a Reuters report quoting sources. The whistle-blowing website said in Twitter messages early this week that it would soon release 2.8 million secret papers, not specifying the nature or subject of these documents. ------------------------------------ Report: WikiLeaks Docs to Show US Military Supporting PKK in Turkey’s Civil War
