August 5, 2010 21:57

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon demanded Thursday that online whistle-blower WikiLeaks turn over its trove of tens of thousands of leaked US government documents and delete them from its website and records.

Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell did not say what efforts the Defense Department might be able to take to compel WikiLeaks to comply. He told a news press conference Thursday that, at this point, the Pentagon is asking WikiLeaks "to do the right thing."

"The Defense Department demands that WikiLeaks return immediately to the US government all versions of documents obtained directly or indirectly from the Department of Defense databases or records," Morrell said.
