Prosecutor: By Putting Sensitive Documents on Internet, Bradley Manning "Dumped" Them Into Enemy Hands

Not how the series of tubes works chief


Army Pfc. Bradley Manning dumped hundreds of thousands of sensitive documents on to the Internet and into enemy hands, a prosecutor said Monday at the beginning of a trial for the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history.

Manning, a 25-year-old former intelligence analyst from Oklahoma, has admitted to giving troves of information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, but military prosecutors are trying to prove Manning aided the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence.
