Norway's leading newspaper, Aftenposten, claims to have obtained the entire cache of 250,000 U.S. State Department cables believed to be in WikiLeaks' possession, without any strings attached.
WikiLeaks has been gradually releasing cables instead of dumping the whole archive, in order to give each of them the public attention they deserve.
In order to do this, the organization has partnered up with some of the world's largest newspapers, The New York Times (US), The Guardian (UK), Le Monde (France), Der Spiegel (Germany) and El Pais (Spain).
These publications are granted access to the diplomatic cables in advance under certain conditions, like coordinating the publishing of their articles with WikiLeaks' public release of the files they refer to.
According to Ole Erik Almlid, managing editor at Aftenposten, the newspaper has collaborated with the Swedish Svenska Dagbladet (SvD), in order to get early access to the 2,000 documents released so far.
However, the Norwegian publication claims to now have all the 250,000 in its possession without any obligation whatsoever to WikiLeaks.
"We have worked hard to get the documents, but it would be wrong of me to disclose who is the source," Almlid says [approximate translation].
