They believe that Manning exploited a loophole in Pentagon's computer network to download and burn secret data on compact discs over six months.
Adrian Lamo, a computer hacker who kept touches with the Private by sending instant messages this year, turned him in to the Army investigators to seek cooperation with them.
He said on Friday that WikiLeaks provided Manning with technical backing so that he could send these downloaded data through specially encrypted e-mails to avoid detection, adding that, though without direct evidence proving the connection between Manning and WikiLeaks, Manning was "manipulated" by the website.
There is no response either from the military or WikiLeaks's founder Julian Assange, an Australian national, to Lamo's words.
One of the inquired persons said he refused to be the Army's WikiLeaks watcher as he had nothing to do with the website, while another said the military is trying to set up a team encompassing Manning's friends and classmates to "infiltrate" WikiLeaks, according to the article.
The U.S. Army authorities continue to chastise the leaks as dangerous and harmful.

then do you think everyone from US embassies revealed to be spying should also be charged for espionage?
In your zeal to push your agenda you dont even seem to care for basic human rights such as being innocent until proven guilty, it's pretty obvious what side you're on

You make an argument that Julian Assange has done nothing wrong. The basis of your position is not based on personal knowledge of Mr. Assange (unless you to hang out but I doubt it) but on an apparent defense of Assange because of his attatude and actions towards the US.
You have consistantly argued Assange is a whistleblower and the info he obtains was voluntary by the people who provided it with no help from wikileaks.
If this is the case, how do you explain this:
An International arrest warrant has been issued for him. Here is to hoping he is caught and sent to prison for his crimes in Sweden.

"We have to refresh the warrant. It's a procedural fault, we agree. The prosecutor Marianne Ny has to write a new one," Tommy Kangasvieri of the Swedish National Criminal Police told AFP.

Patience, Xcathdra, patience.
Prosecutors are not judges and even if the Swedish judges should be as "skillful" as the prosecutors they are still member of the EU.
Give them some time, to fulfill your dreams...
