Military Can’t Find Evidence to Connect Bradley Manning With Julian Assange

Military officials say investigators have been unable to prove that Julian Assange had any direct contact with Bradley Manning or that the unlawfully downloaded classified documents were ever passed directly to Assange. WikiLeaks’ founder has consistently claimed he never knew Manning’s name until he saw it in the media. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder must be miffed. Not only will he have a harder time justifying those espionage charges, but he also just gave Assange a reason to say, “Told you so.” Something tells us Assange will be able to pull off a smug delivery with panache.
