AP – A Pentagon spokesman says the Army is leading the Pentagon’s inquiry into the source of leaked classified intelligence logs from the Afghanistan war.

Col. Dave Lapan (luh-PAN’) says the criminal probe launched Tuesday is aimed at finding the source of secret documents published Sunday by the online site WikiLeaks.

The Army’s criminal investigative division led the investigation into Bradley Manning, an Army intelligence specialist charged with leaking other material to WikiLeaks.

Lapan says it’s not clear whether the latest material came from Manning or someone else. The Army will have the power to investigate members of other military branches.
