Washington: The Pentagon has asked the whistleblower website WikiLeaks to return immediately to the government all versions of classified US military documents obtained by it directly or indirectly from its databases.
"The Defence Department demands that WikiLeaks return immediately to the US government all versions of documents obtained directly or indirectly from the Department of Defence databases or records," Pentagon spokesperson Geoff Morrell told reporters at a briefing here.
"Public disclosure of additional Defence Department classified information can only make the damage worse. The only acceptable course is for WikiLeaks to take steps immediately to return all versions of all of these documents to the US government and permanently delete them from its website, computers and records," he said.
Earlier, the U.S. Army started a criminal probe into the leak of some 92,000 classified military files on the war in Afghanistan by Wikileaks, the Pentagon announced on Tuesday.
The probe has been assigned to the same Army Criminal Investigation Division that has been investigating Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old private charged in an earlier leak to Wikileaks.
More than 91,000 secret — and previously unreported — US military reports of conflicts in Afghanistan were published on the site, as well as by the New York Times, The Guardian and Der Spiegel.
It is the biggest military security leak since the Vietnam war.
According to the site, most of the entries in the "Afghan War Diary" have been written by soldiers and intelligence officers listening to reports radioed in from frontline deployments. Reports also contain related information from Marine intelligence, US embassies, apart from corruption cases and development activity across Afghanistan.
In 310 "significant" reports highlighted in a downloadable spreadsheet by The Guardian, "Enemy KIA" (killed in action) numbered 138, while "Civilian KIA" numbered 197.
