PFC Bradley Manning, an intelligence analyst, has been arrested and charged with leaking Defense documents, but the glut of State Dept. information forthcoming suggests a new leak source.

On Sunday morning, the document dump was expected to be hours away. The websites of one of the publications given advance access to the documents, Britain's Guardian newspaper, was down on Sunday morning, seemingly for maintenance or updates.
