In late May 2010, Private First Class Bradley Manning, an intelligence analyst with the US Army in Baghdad, Iraq was arrested, suspected of providing the “Collateral Murder” video to WikiLeaks. On June 6, 2010, he was charged with violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice, including eight criminal offenses and four noncriminal violations of Army regulations (full charge sheet).

The irony! Peter Van Buren , a 23-year foreign service officer with the US Department of State, may be the only department personnel to be fired over the WikiLeaks’ scandal.
