Pentagon Official Testifies At Manning's Trial

Posted: Updated:

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A Pentagon official says a video of a U.S. Apache helicopter attack leaked by Pfc. Bradley Manning revealed sensitive information that could help enemies plan deadlier assaults.
    
Chief Warrant Officer 5 Jon LaRue's statement was admitted as prosecution evidence Wednesday at Manning's court-martial for giving classified information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
    
LaRue is an Apache helicopter expert. His statement concerned a 2007 attack in Baghdad that killed a Reuters news photographer and his driver.
    
LaRue says the cockpit video revealed digital display information about the helicopter's airspeed and angles of engagement. He says such information can help enemies anticipate U.S. operations and plan more effective attacks.
    
Manning's court-martial is moving along faster than expected. The government's case is about a week or two ahead of schedule.
