Don’t miss Wired’s amazing story about an Iraq-stationed Army specialist, Bradley Manning, who was arrested two weeks ago for leaking Wikileaks a gruesome video from 2007 showing U.S. soldiers in Baghdad appearing to open fire on unarmed civilians. Manning told a famous hacker named Adrian Lamo that he was the Wikileaks leaker, and Lamo contacted the authorities:
“I wouldn’t have done this if lives weren’t in danger,” says Lamo, who discussed the details with Wired.com following Manning’s arrest. “He was in a war zone and basically trying to vacuum up as much classified information as he could, and just throwing it up into the air.”
