President Obama spoke this morning, for the first time, on the massive leak of sensitive documents about the Afghanistan war.

He said the disclosure of classified information from the battlefield "could potentially jeopardize individuals or operations," but he said the papers don't bring any new information to the table.

The president spoke in the Rose Garden following a meeting with House and Republican leaders of both parties.

The WikiLeaks material ranges from files documenting Afghan civilian deaths to evidence of U.S.-Pakistani distrust.
