WikiLeaks Probe Ramps Up One Year After Bradley Manning's Arrest

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/26/wikileaks-bradley-m...

NEW YORK -- A year after Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was arrested on suspicion of leaking classified info to WikiLeaks, the government is shifting its probe of the whistle-blowing organization into higher gear.

Two weeks ago, a grand jury meeting in a courtroom in the Eastern District Court of Virginia heard testimony for at least two days from at least three people subpoenaed by federal prosecutors, several sources tell The Huffington Post. The jury has been convened to consider whether to approve the prosecution of WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange. A subpoena delivered to a Manning associate in the Boston area says that prosecutors are investigating "possible violations of federal criminal law involving, but not necessarily limited to, conspiracy to communicate or transmit national defence information in violation of" the Espionage Act, as first reported by Salon's Glenn Greenwald.

And the Army's court-martial case against Manning is gearing up for the military equivalent of a grand jury to decide if a court-martial trial against the 23-year-old soldier should proceed. Adrian Lamo, the ex-hacker who turned in Manning, is going to meet the chief prosecutor on the case on June 2 and 3, reports Wired.com. During several online chats with Lamo last May, Manning claimed that he was responsible for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WkiLeaks, including the "Collateral Murder" video of an Apache helicopter attack on Iraqi civilians and the State Department diplomatic cables that rocked the foreign policy establishment and helped inspire the recent unrest in the Mideast.

Lamo

The perfect name for a snitch. The Department of Homeland security should name an award after him. They could award it once a year to America's greatest fink.

Police state strides forward

Thanks for a bump.

In todays crazy world it makes sense.
Obama got Nobel Peace Prize and is busy bombing 5 countries spreading democracy and freedom around the world.
Lamo should get the next Nobel Peace Prize but this one should have a different name they should change the name a bit:
Eisenhower Military Industrial Complex War Crimes Prize.

I could go for that name

Eisenhower by no means deserved 4 terms.
