CIA says WikiLeaks disclosures help US adversaries

WASHINGTON: The Central Intelligence Agency Wednesday accused WikiLeaks of endangering Americans, helping US rivals and hampering Washington´s fight against terror threats by releasing what it claimed was a trove of CIA hacking tools.

A CIA spokesperson would not confirm the authenticity of the materials published a day earlier by WikiLeaks, which said they were leaked from the spy agency´s hacking operations.

However, "such disclosures not only jeopardize US personnel and operations, but also equip our adversaries with tools and information to do us harm," said CIA spokeswoman Heather Horniak.
