The Pentagon believes WikiLeaks has more than 400,000 documents from the Iraq war, mostly raw, low-level intelligence reports.
The defense official said the department had chosen not to notify people named in the documents because it doesn’t know if WikiLeaks will redact the names.
“There are a lot of names [in the documents,]” said the defense official. “We can’t chase every single person. And we have to see what happens. Maybe no one’s name will be released.”
