Pentagon, DOJ Investigate as Secret Military Documents Appear Online

Pentagon officials acknowledged the documents are real

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has joined the Pentagon in an urgent effort to determine how secret military documents on the war in Ukraine made their way onto multiple social media sites.

A small number of documents, including some marked "top secret," were found on Twitter and Telegram on Wednesday. Since then, journalists, researchers and social media sleuths have uncovered additional classified documents posted as early as March 1 on additional sites.

Pentagon officials acknowledge the documents are real and say they are investigating. The DOJ said Friday evening it has also opened an investigation and is working with the Department of Defense.
