US intelligence analyst arrested over Wikileaks video
Private First Class Bradley E. Manning (born 1987) is a United States Army soldier who has been arrested and charged with the unauthorized use and disclosure of U.S. classified information.Manning was an intelligence analyst assigned to a support battalion with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division at Contingency Operating Station Hammer, Iraq. Agents of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command arrested Manning based on information received from federal authorities provided by an American informant, Adrian Lamo, in whom Manning had previously confided. Lamo said that Manning claimed, via instant messaging, to be the person who had leaked the "Collateral Murder" video of a helicopter airstrike on July 12, 2007, in Baghdad. Additionally, a video of the Granai airstrike and around 260,000 diplomatic cables were released to the whistleblower website Wikileaks.
Manning was charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) with violations of UCMJ Articles 92 and 134, for "transferring classified data onto his personal computer and adding unauthorized software to a classified computer system," and "communicating, transmitting and delivering national defense information to an unauthorized source". Manning is currently awaiting an Article 32 hearing.

I thought the us was supposed to be safer with a democratic administration. Just why are all those "secrets" floating all around the world then? Where are all those european "allies?" Can't they help, or is this just another case of anti-americanism? I'm just not feelin' all the love and respect we were supposed to have after electing mr obama and all.

Have you considered reading the newspaper to get up to speed?Just why are all those "secrets" floating all around the world then?
So. You have zero facts and this is just a thinly veiled attack on a president you don't like in lieu of contributing substantive thought to this thread.Where are all those european "allies?"

Just what we needed on this thread, more mindless partisan shilling.
