Alleged war documents paint ground-level picture

WikiLeaks.org has published what it says are more than 90,000 United States military and diplomatic reports about Afghanistan filed between 2004 and January of this year. The first-hand accounts are the military's own raw data on the war, including numbers killed, casualties, threat reports and the like, according to Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks.org, which published the material Sunday.

CNN has not independently confirmed the authenticity of the documents. The Department of Defense will not comment on them until the Pentagon has had a chance to look at them, a Defense official told CNN.
