Judge Says Wikileaks Tweets Relevant to 'Aiding the Enemy' Charges Against Manning

How did they help the U.S. government?


A military judge overseeing Bradley Manning's court-martial has found WikiLeaks tweets, claiming possession of encrypted video, are relevant evidence to the "aiding the enemy" charges the whistleblower is facing.

On the 12th day of trial, which resumed at Fort Meade, Maryland, June 26, military judge Col. Denise Lind weighed the admissibility of three pieces of evidence suggesting that an Army private Bradley Manning, 25, accused with leaking more than 700,000 files to WikiLeaks, took his cues from the whistle-blowing organization in disclosing classified information.
