Where does this information come from?
Surely not from Wikileaks if I'm right, surely Wikileaks is not the source if I'm right.
Am I right?

You realize that the "first video that came out" was GIVEN FROM THE SAME SOURCE???!
Your logic is flawed. You say that the first leak that came out was real, but this one is false, but in reality IT WAS GIVEN TO WIKILEAKS FROM THE SAME PERSON AT THE SAME TIME.
Wikilieaks explicitly talked about these leaked cables (the 250,000 they are in the process of releasing now) WAY BACK before collateral murder was even released. Thats cause they received them all as one bundle and chose to release them after all 250,000 had undergone redactions after they received public backlash after releasing unredacted Iraq war logs.
Maybe you haven't read the news at all (it appears that you havent), but Private Manning (the one locked up for the "first leak" as you claim) is the one that is catching hell for these cables. Supposedly he smuggled it out on a Lady Gaga CD and lip synced while he was copying / burning the files.
I suggest you do to more research before you act like you know everything.edit on 1-12-2010 by FalselyFlagged because: (no reason given)edit on 1-12-2010 by FalselyFlagged because: (no reason given)
Manning faces a court martial and up to 52 years in prison for his alleged role in copying the diplomatic cables, as well as the leak of military logs about incidents in Afghanistan and Iraq and a classified military video which showed a crew of an American Apache helicopter gunning down a group of men who they thought had a rocket launcher. They turned out to include Reuters staff with a TV camera.
