I received the email from Wikileaks edito, Assang Julian on how the US Intelligence planned to destroy the Leak website. I thought this was some kind of spam or joke from all over like it always happens. Butcounter-checking the address and also the link revealed more.
The Summary reads;
This document is a classifed (SECRET/NOFORN) 32 page U.S. counterintelligence investigation into WikiLeaks.

It concocts a plan to fatally marginalize the organization. Since WikiLeaks usestrust as a center of gravity by protecting the anonymity and identity of the insiders, leakers or whisteblowers”, the report recommends
The identification, exposure, termination of employment, criminal prosecution, legal action against current or former insiders, leakers, or whistlblowers could potentially damage or destroy this center of gravity and deter others considering similar actions from using the Wikileaks.org Web site''. [As two years have passed since the date of the report, with no WikiLeaks' source exposed, it appears that this plan was ineffective]. As an odd justificaton for the plan, the report claims thatSeveral foreign countries including China, Israel, North Kora, Russia, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe have denounced or blocked access to the Wikileaks.org website”. The report provides further justification by enumerating embarrassing stories broken by WikiLeaks—U.S. equipment expenditure in Iraq, probable U.S. violations of the Cemical Warfare Convention Treaty in Iraq, the battle over the Iraqi town of Fallujah and human rights violations at Guantanmo Bay.
In the link, Wikileaks detail show US intelligence were so unhappy withits work that it is determined to bring it down.
