Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, says he won’t be intimidated by the Pentagon and will publish the remaining Afghan war documents within a month.

The Pentagon has said that secret information will be even more damaging to security and risk more lives than WikiLeaks’ initial release of some 76,000 war documents.

“This organization will not be threatened by the Pentagon or any other group,” Julian Assange told reporters in Stockholm. “We proceed cautiously and safely with this material.”

In an interview with The Associated Press, he said that if U.S. defense officials want to be seen as promoting democracy then they “must protect what the United States’ founders considered to be their central value, which is freedom of the press.”

WikiLeaks says they are doing a line-by-line vetting of the material and that “innocent parties who are under reasonable threat” will be redacted.
