Probe seeking Afghan leak source: US Attorney General
Cairo: US Attorney General Eric Holder
says an investigation by the Pentagon and Justice Department
will determine whether criminal charges will be filed in the
leaking of Afghanistan war secrets.
Holder, speaking to reporters during a visit to
Egypt today, says the investigation aims to determine the
source of the leak. He says "whether there will be criminal
charges brought will depend on how the investigation goes".
He says he "deplores" the leak, adding, "it is not
really in the national interest of the United States."
Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said yesterday
that the Defense Department has launched a "very robust
investigation" into the leak of secret documents on the war in
Afghanistan published Sunday by WikiLeaks, an online site.
