WASHINGTON (AP) The Defense Department is conducting a damage assessment on the leak of some 91,000 classified documents on the Afghanistan war.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan told reporters Monday the review could take "days, if not weeks" because the military has yet to see all of the leaked reports.

Wikileaks.org posted the classified documents to its Web site Sunday night, but access was difficult, apparently because the site was overwhelmed with traffic.

The source of the leak is still in question. Lapan said that while the military has detained an Army soldier in Kuwait for transmitting classified information, the latest documents could have come from anyone with a secret-level clearance.
