    Army Private Charged in Leak of Deadly Helicopter Attack Video

    Post by Sith Lord 13 on Tue Jul 06, 2010 7:54 pm

    An Army private has been charged with violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice, accused of leaking a video of an Apache helicopter attack in Iraq that killed 12 people, including civilians, in July 2007.

    Pfc. Bradley Manning, 22, was detained in Kuwait in May and now faces an indictment for allegedly transferring classified information, including the video and more than 150,000 State Department cables, by downloading the information to his computer, the New York Times said Tuesday.

    The video wound up on the whistleblower website, Wikileaks.org, where it was edited and made public under the name, "Collateral Murder." Among the dead: a reporter and driver for the news service Reuters.
    Manning, who served with the with the Second Brigade of the 10th Mountain Division, was stationed at a base east of Baghdad called Contingency Operating Station Hammer. He faces an Article 32 investigation -- the equivalent of a civilian grand jury -- that will determine whether his case goes before a court martial.

    IT's military, so why doesn't it go straight to Court Marshall anyway?
