The Daily Outrage: Young soldier gave classified videos to website 

WHAT: Army investigators arrested intelligence analyst Bradley Manning, 22, on suspicion of releasing two controversial Iraq combat videos and 260,000 State Department diplomatic cables to an Internet whistle-blowing site, WikiLeaks.

TIP-OFF: Manning was caught after allegedly boasting about his exploits to online hacker Adrian Lamo, who told the FBI.

WHY IT’S OUTRAGEOUS: The posted video of Army forces shooting at Iraqis from helicopters apparently removed footage showing some of the Iraqis were carrying automatic weapons.
