WikiLeaks Army Private Now at Leavenworth

The Army private suspected of giving troves of classified information to the WikiLeaks website has arrived at a detention facility in Kansas where he will await the government’s decision on whether to put him on trial, according to the Associated Press.

Pfc. Bradley Manning was transferred to the facility at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., from a Marine brig at Quantico, Va., where he had been confined since last summer.

An Army spokesman at the Pentagon, Col. Tom Collins, said Manning arrived safely at Leavenworth’s Joint Regional Correctional Facility at about 2:50 p.m. Eastern Time and over the coming five to seven days will undergo an in-depth assessment by medical staff.
