Manning Tied to Thousands of Classified Documents Published by WikiLeaks

The little mutherfucker was prolific.

Investigators have found concrete evidence linking Pfc. Bradley Manning with the leak of classified Afghanistan war reports, a defense official said.

A search of the computers used by Pfc. Manning yielded evidence he had downloaded the Afghanistan war logs, which span from 2004 until 2009, the official said. It’s not clear precisely what that evidence is.

The investigation is also looking at who might have helped Pfc. Manning provide the documents to WikiLeaks, a web-based group that earlier this week released 76,000 secret reports from Afghanistan.

Because of the focus on civilians who helped Pfc. Manning, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department have been brought into aid the investigation lead by the Army Criminal Investigation Command.

Defense officials are also combing through Pfc. Manning’s computers in a bid to figure out what other material he may have stolen as they try to anticipate what other material WikiLeaks may have.

……Investigators began examining Pfc. Manning’s actions in May when Adrian Lamo, the former computer hacker, alerted authorities that the private had potentially stolen classified documents.

In a series of Internet chats, Pfc. Manning told Mr. Lamo he had passed classified documents to WikiLeaks.

Both Manning and Julian Assange should be hung by their necks on a flagpole.
