Australia on Wednesday blamed the US, and not Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, for the unauthorized revelation of 250,000 classified US diplomatic cables, saying the individuals who originally released the documents were legally liable, Reuters reported.

Australian Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd added that "adequacy" of US security over the documents was questionable."Mr. Assange is not himself responsible for the unauthorized release of 250,000 documents from the US diplomatic communications network," Rudd said in an interview with Reuters.

"The Americans are responsible for that," said Rudd.
