Manning linked to classified Afghanistan reports

Investigators say they've found concrete evidence linking Pfc. Bradley Manning with the "War Logs" ultimately leaked to the Guardian, New York Times and Der Spiegel. From the WSJ:
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.

  1. The “evidence” might be tunneling electron-microscope scans of hard drive surfaces.

    Emptying your Recycle bin ain’t enough, folks!

  2. History is not good to soldiers who turn against their own fellow soldiers and country.

    1. Nor have those who have resisted tyranny fared very well. So what?
      What’s your point?
      That leaders who commit war crimes should be brought to trial?

  3. Wait… they didn’t have evidence he downloaded the documents from looking at the server’s logs?

    I suppose if the act of downloading 76,000 classified documents doesn’t at least trigger an email to someone, why expect there to be an audit trail?
