Army Can't Link Manning to Assange

This really puts a dent in some people’s hopes to extradite and prosecute Julian Assange: NBC News reports that military investigators have been unable to link Bradley Manning to Julian Assange in the WikiLeaks investigation. While they’ve determined that Manning illegally downloaded tens of thousands of classified documents and passed them off to an unauthorized person, he doesn’t seem to have ever had any contact with Assange, who has denied knowing Manning. "That's not how our technology works, that's not how our organization works," Assange has said. "I never heard of the name of Bradley Manning before it appeared in the media."
