Dear Mrs. xxxx
Thank you for contacting me to express your opinion regarding the WikiLeaks release of classified documents. As your Congressman, I appreciate hearing your thoughts and welcome every opportunity to be of service. As you are aware, on July 25, 2010, a Swedish organization called WikiLeaks released a six-year archive of 92,000 classified military documents related to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Further, WikiLeaks released an even larger group of classified documents detailing sensitive information about the Operation Iraqi Freedom on October 22, 2010. These two releases, which were posted on the Internet, represent the largest leaks of such information in U.S. history. I am adamantly opposed to the release or leak of any classified documents. This information obtained and released by WikiLeaks is now accessible by anyone in the world and can put our men and women in uniform in grave danger. Although WikiLeaks wrongfully obtained such sensitive information, I am even more profoundly disappointed in all parties that played a part in releasing the documents on the internet. The very terrorists we are fighting in order to keep America safe will now have the ability to view strategic and tactical decisions made by the U.S. Armed Forces and could hinder our operations in Afghanistan. Rest assured that I will work diligently to bring the source of this leak to justice and work to restore the integrity of our classified information. Again, thank you for sharing your concerns. If you feel that I may be of additional assistance on this, or any other matter of importance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I also invite you to sign up for my weekly email newsletter, or to share your ideas and opinions, by visiting my website at gingrey.house.gov... or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wikileaks didn't steal a single document and those who claim so apparently haven't done their research.
They simply ask for it, and that is all. You can't convict people for releasing information that was given to them.
