President Barack Obama says he is concerned about the massive leak of sensitive documents about the Afghanistan war, but says the papers don't reveal any concerns that were not already part of the debate.

In his first public comments on the matter, Obama said the disclosure of classified information from the battlefield "could potentially jeopardize individuals or operations." But he said the papers fail to generate any information that hadn't already been explored as part of the White House's revamped war effort.

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.
