Leak of Afghan war logs still poses threat

No sensitive intelligence was compromised, no secret practices revealed. But, the Pentagon says that tens of thousands of secret Afghan war logs, posted by WikiLeaks over the summer, might still hurt national security. The military says including the names of Afghans who cooperated with the U.S. put them at risk. Meanwhile, Pentagon officials have assembled a 120 member team in anticipation of another massive leak of war documents. These are expected to be related to Iraq. WikiLeaks is expected to post as many as 50,000 documents this month, perhaps as early as today.
