Soldier accused of leaking secret documents, video online

Wired's Threat Level blog has broken a big story: The military has arrested an Army intelligence analyst for allegedly passing classified information to Wikileaks, a website specializing in whistleblower-type stories. Specifically, the analyst, a 22-year-old specialist, is suspected of sending a video of a helicopter attack that killed several civilians in Iraq. Wired says the case broke open after a former hacker contacted the military, saying the analyst had bragged about the leaks in an online discussion.
