A US Army lieutenant colonel has been charged with nine offenses, including aiding the enemy, the US military announced Thursday. Lt. Col. William H. Steele was accused of providing "aid to the enemy" by providing an unmonitored cell phone to detainees, a US statement said. The other charges included unauthorized possession of classified information; fraternizing with the daughter of a detainee; maintaining an inappropriate relationship with an interpreter; storing classified information in his quarters; and possessing pornographic videos, the statement said. Steele also was charged with improperly marking classified information; failing to obey an order; and failing to fulfill his obligations in the expenditure of funds, the military said.
