WASHINGTON — A criminal investigation into the leak of tens of thousands of secret Afghanistan war logs could go beyond the military, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday, and he did not rule out that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could be a target.

"The investigation should go wherever it needs to go," Gates said.

The defense secretary would not be more specific, waving off questions about whether Assange, who is Australian, or media outlets that used the WikiLeaks material could be subjects of the criminal probe. But he noted that he has asked the FBI to help in the investigation "to ensure that it can go wherever it needs to go."
