The Pentagon says that after reviewing the intelligence file on the Iraq war, it believes it knows which documents may be about to be published by the Wikileaks website.

US officials have assembled an team of 120 ahead of the expected publication by the website of some 400,000 documents relating to the conflict in Iraq.

The files have been leaked to the website from an unconfirmed source.

The ABC has reported that if the release goes ahead, it would eclipse the recent publication of more than 70,000 classified US military files on the war in Afghanistan, which caused an outcry in Washington.
