I especially like this bit:
"The concern is that WikiLeaks as an organization should not be made more credible by having credible news organizations facilitate what they're doing,"
For the Pentagon being credible means being a puppet of them, in other words, not credible.
WASHINGTON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - The Pentagon urged news organizations on Monday not to publish classified U.S. documents due to be released by WikiLeaks as U.S. officials brace for a mass disclosure of leaked Iraq war files by the whistle-blower website...
"News organizations should be cautioned not to facilitate the leaking of classified documents with this disreputable organization known as WikiLeaks," Lapan said.
