The U.S. military on Wednesday added capital crime charges of aiding the enemy to the indictment against Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, the intelligence analyst accused of copying a quarter-million classified U.S. military and diplomatic cables and providing them to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
"The new charges more accurately reflect the broad scope of the crimes that Manning is accused of committing," said Capt. John Haberland, a legal spokesman for the district.
