A prosecutor says US Army Pfc. Bradley Manning dumped classified documents on to the Internet and into the enemy hands.

Capt. Joe Morrow made the comments Monday during his opening statement at a trial for the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history.

Morrow says Manning's case is about what happens when arrogance meets access to sensitive information.

Prosecutors are trying to prove Manning aided the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence.

Manning says he released the material to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks to expose the American military's "bloodlust" and disregard for human life in Iraq and Afghanistan. He says he did not believe the information would harm the US.
