US Army Traces Alleged Leaker's Digital Footprints

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - The pretrial hearing of an Army private accused of spilling U.S. secrets is resuming today after some potentially damaging testimony for the defendant.

Late Sunday, investigator David Shaver testified that he found more than 10,000 diplomatic cables and other sensitive information on one computer used by Pfc. Bradley Manning.

On another computer used by the private, Shaver said, he found evidence that someone had been searching online for information on

WikiLeaks, where the classified material eventually surfaced.

Manning's lawyers intend to cross-examine Shaver when the hearing gets under way again.

They've been pressing the government to explain why Manning's supervisors trusted him with sensitive information even after his confrontations with those he worked with in Baghdad.

The hearing will determine whether Manning faces a court martial.
