The Times has an article on their news blog, The Lede about Private First Class Bradley Manning, he who took aÂ Wikileak on the Department of State.Â At the end of the post is included his current reading list.Â I thought you might want to read up:

The same episode was shown in graphic video shot from the helicopters posted on YouTube in April by WikiLeaks.
