Thoughts on the Bradley Manning Arrest and Manhunt for Julian Assange

Will the Pentagon manhunt for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange be as successful as their manhunt for Osama Bin Laden?

Wikileaks reports:

US Army, US Army CID, State Dep have together been visiting Manning's irregular US email contacts.
Here's a curiosity about the arrest of SPC Bradley Manning on suspicion of leaking the "Collateral Murder" video that showed US pilots shooting down Iraqi civilians, along with other video and 260,000 State Department cables. He was turned in by Adrian Lamo who supposedly suffers from"Asperger’s Syndrome," which leave those afflicted without any empathy for other human beings. So why did the non-empathetic Lamo turn Manning in? Because he apparently has empathy for the entire f'ing world. Wired reports that the Lamo explanation is that "lives were in danger," and it was his "patriotic duty." Wow! I'd say he's cured of Asperger Syndrome.
