The chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen has condemned a new release of Iraq war documents by the group WikiLeaks, saying it was putting lives at risk.

"Another irresponsible posting of stolen classified documents by WikiLeaks puts lives at risk and gives adversaries valuable information," Mullen said in a one-sentence posting on the website Twitter late on Saturday.

On Friday, WikiLeaks released 400,000 classified US military documents on the war in Iraq, saying they revealed the "truth" about the conflict.

The mass of documents from 2004 to 2009 offer a grim snapshot of the conflict, especially of the abuse of Iraqi civilians by Iraqi security forces.
