Tech Forensics Take Center Stage in Manning Pre-Trial 172

smitty777 writes with some updates from Bradley Manning's Article 32 hearing: "Wired has been reporting all [yester]day on the prosecution's technological evidence against Bradley Manning. The first is on the technology and techniques used by Manning. In the second, the examiners admit they didn't find any matching cables on Manning's computer. And finally, evidence that Manning chatted directly with Assange himself." The prosecution was able to access chat logs and other bits of evidence (which had been deleted, but not scrubbed from the disk) thanks to PFC Manning's use of the same password for his OS login and encryption passphrase. Oops.
