Late Friday afternoon, news organizations began posting classified documents from the Iraq war given to them by Julian Assange and his Wikileak website.

Wikileaks is believed to have 390,000 documents. The Pentagon says its main concern is the names of Iraqis contained in those documents who might now be subject to reprisal.

The documents are all part of what's called the Iraq Database which dwarfs the 76,000 Afghan war documents Wikileaks released earlier this year. The documents are believed to have been given to the website by Army Private Bradley Manning.
