US To Press Charges Against Soldier Who Leaked WikiLeaks Video

CNN is reporting that the US will be pressing charges against Pfc. Bradley Manning, the young soldier who leaked the footage that eventually became the infamous WikiLeaks “Collateral Murder” video. Manning was arrested by federal officials a few months ago. He has been detained in Kuwait without charges until now.

From CNN:

“The U.S. military said Tuesday it is pressing criminal charges against Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, 22, for allegedly transferring classified data onto his personal computer and adding unauthorized software to a classified computer system.”

Manning is also believed to have leaked 260,000 classified cables to WikiLeaks.
