Remember that WikiLeaks video that showed civilians being murdered by American soldiers? If you haven't seen the video, it's too late to now. The video has been removed from the WikiLeaks page and the person accused of leaking the video has been arrested.


Army Specialist Bradley Manning, 22, of Potomac, Maryland, who was deployed to Baghdad, is being held in pretrial confinement in Kuwait, "for allegedly releasing classified information," according to a U.S. military statement. [here]


The video that was released by WikiLeaks caused an uproar around the world. It showed Afghan journalists and children being riddled with bullets - by American troops shooting from a helicopter.


Apparently, Manning bragged to another individual about the leaking of the video. The person Manning bragged to? Former hacker Adrian Lamao, who proved to be working undercover with the Feds.
