Bradley Manning, private first class soldier for the United States Army, is the soldier who leaked the “Collateral Murder” video, the Granai airstrike video, and 250,000 diplomatic cables to the Wikileaks website.

The intelligence analyst has been detained by the U.S military since May of 2010 and has spent the last 5 months at the U.S Marine Corps Brig in Quantico, Virginia.

Julian Assange, the founder of the infamous Wikileaks website, has been arrested after surrendering to London police.

He was denied bail because he is an obvious flight risk. England will attempt to extradite him to Sweden to face rape charges.

The political prisoner is accused of raping two women over a year ago. Officially, he has been charged with two counts of sexual molestation, one count of rape, and one count of sexual coercion.

According to the San Fransisco Chronicle,  Assange had consensual sex with 2 ‘activist’ women who were attracted to him because of his rebel, ‘activist’ ways. The second women he slept with says the condom broke during sex and Assange didn’t stop. The first women says they had sex without a condom.

The arrest comes on the heels of a new, damaging Wikileaks cable that was released yesterday. The “Clinton cable” release details places around the world that are important to the National Security of the United States.
