(Newser) – The White House today implored WikiLeaks to stop posting secret Afghanistan war documents as the Pentagon brought the soldier suspected of leaking the information back to the US for trial in another case.

The Pentagon inquiry has been looking most closely at Pvt. Bradley Manning, an Army intelligence specialist who already has been charged with leaking a helicopter video from Iraq to WikiLeaks.
