video It ought to be mentioned that he is person who provided the website Wikileaks with the incriminating footage of the 2007 Apache helicopter attack, that was responsible for killing so many innocent people in Baghdad, who were harmlessly strolling on the streets.

The US Military had earlier said that they were engaging in suspicious activity, and were also putting up a fight, but in the video it was clearly seen that it was not the case. The civilians were normally strolling on the streets, when the helicopter spotted them and mercilessly fired bullets at them.

The 22-year-old Specialist Bradley Manning of Potomac, Md was arrested after he had proudly talked about leaking the documents and the videos to Wikileaks to Adrian Lamo. He had said that he had given Wikileaks the 2007 Apache helicopter video, three other classified gun-camera videos including a controversial bombing in Afghanistan and a whooping amount of 260,000 classified cables.

Specialist Bradley Manning wrote in an email that, “Hillary Clinton and several thousand diplomats around the world are going to have a heart attack.” But now it seems that all these details and emails are coming back to haunt him.
