A U.S. Army intelligence analyst suspected of leaking videos and 
documents to Wikileaks was charged Monday with eight violations of 
federal criminal law, including unauthorized computer access, and 
transmitting classified information to an unauthorized third party.

Pfc. Bradley Manning, 22, was charged with two counts under the Uniform 
Code of Military Justice: one encompassing the eight alleged criminal 
offenses, and a second detailing four noncriminal violations of Army 
regulations governing the handling of classified information and 
computers.

According to the charge sheet, Manning downloaded a classified video of 
a military operation in Iraq and transmitted it to a third party, in 
violation of a section of the Espionage Act, 18 U.S.C. 793(e), which 
involves passing classified information to an uncleared party, but not a 
foreign government.

The remaining criminal charges are for allegedly abusing access to the 
Secret-level SIPR network to obtain more than 150,000 U.S. State 
Department cables, as well as an unspecified classified PowerPoint 
presentation.
