Aunt's Statement At Manning Trial Becomes Evidence

Posted: Updated:

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A statement from Army Pfc. Bradley Manning's aunt has become part of the evidence at his court-martial over giving classified material to WikiLeaks.
    
Debra Van Alstyne made the statement to Army investigators when they talked to her at her Maryland home in June 2010, shortly after Manning's arrest.
    
She said an investigator collected a digital camera data card that was found to contain some of the leaked Iraq battlefield reports and video of an Apache helicopter attack WikiLeaks had posted in which civilians were killed.
    
She said Manning called her after his arrest and asked if she had watched the helicopter video. She said he told her the video would be "big news" and that it would make a "big splash" in America.
