Soldier admits leaking classified info

An army soldier who leaked U.S. government secrets to the world pleaded guilty today -- but not to the biggest charge he faced.

Pfc. Bradley Manning said he was guilty of 10 of 22 charges in the WikiLeaks case but he wouldn't confess to "aiding the enemy."

He allegedly stole thousands of classified documents while serving in Iraq, which then got published online.

He said he passed on information that "upset" or "disturbed" him, but nothing he thought would harm the United States if it became public.
