The 22-year-old intelligence analyst is accused of leaking a classified helicopter cockpit video of a 2007 firefight in Baghdad that left a Reuters photographer and his driver dead.

He's also come under suspicion in the leak of tens of thousands of secret Afghanistan war logs WikiLeaks posted this week on the Internet.
