Pentagon returns Wikileaks suspect to U.S.
Friday - 7/30/2010, 1:22pm EDT
A military intelligence analyst suspected in the leak of more than 90,000 classified field reports from Afghanistan was returned to the United States from a base in Kuwait Thursday, Politico reports.
"U.S. Army officials transferred PFC Bradley Manning from the Theater Field Confinement Facility in Kuwait to the Marine Corps Base Quantico Brig in Quantico, Virginia, on July 29," Major Bryan Woods, an Army spokesman, said in a statement e-mailed to reporters.
Preliminary charges were filed against Manning back on July 5 in connection with the leak of a classified video to Wikileaks depicting the killing of a Reuters photographer by U.S. forces. He was also charged with leaking more than 50 diplomatic cables and downloading more than 150,000 of them in violation of military rules. At least some of that material seems to have made it to Wikileaks, though the web site's founder Julian Assange has said it does not have the larger cache.
Military officials said this week that Manning is now a "person of interest" in the highly-publicized leak of the Afghanistan reports--a leak which top Pentagon officials have said could result in the deaths of U.S. soldiers or Afghans.
