Manning 2.0? WikiLeaks-scale 'Russian spy' scandal blinds 'Five Eyes'

• http://rt.com
 

The amount of data leaked to ‘a foreign entity’ by a Canadian Navy intelligence officer standing trial is reportedly comparable to the alleged WikiLeaks dump by Pvt. Bradley Manning. The officer is believed to have spied for Russia.

­Lt. Jeffrey Paul Delisle is the first Canadian indicted for violation of the Security of Information Act, which was adopted after the 9/11 terror attack in the US. He is expected to appear for a bail hearing in a Halifax court on Wednesday.

There are few official comments on the accusations so far. But the leak may be among the largest security breaches in a decade, roughly matching the embarrassing WikiLeaks data loss, a source familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal.
