U.S. says actions of WikiLeaks soldier show 'arrogance'

• Reuters

U.S. military prosecutors said arrogance drove the American soldier who went on trial on Monday accused of orchestrating the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history through the WikiLeaks anti-secrecy website three years ago.

But at the opening of the court-martial of intelligence analyst Bradley Manning, 25, his defense lawyer portrayed him as a naïve young soldier who had leaked the documents, combat videos and other data because he wanted to reveal the human costs of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
