WikiLeaks scandal: Evidence suggests Manning leaked sensitive names

FORT MEADE, Maryland (AP) - Prosecutors in the court-martial of army private Bradley Manning are offering evidence that says the reams of classified documents he leaked revealed sensitive information about military operations and tactics.

The evidence was presented on Tuesday, the fifth day of Manning's trial at Fort Meade, near Baltimore. He is charged with aiding the enemy by sending hundreds of thousands of secret records and some battlefield videos to the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Baghdad.

Manning has acknowledged leaking the material but he says he did not think the disclosures would harm the United States.

Prosecutors presented statements from two classification experts who said the leaked material contained code words and information about troop movements.

The experts say the material also identified criminal suspects and an enemy target.
