Bradly Manning was arrested in May 2010 after he was outed by hacker Adrian Lamo. Manning is believed to be the source of the video depicting a helicopter attack that killed several civilians, including Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen.
It accuses Manning of "wrongfully introducing a classified video of a military operation filmed at or near Baghdad, Iraq, on or about 12 July 2007, onto his personal computer, a non-secure information system."
The charges were brought under the military code of justice and could result in a trial by court-martial.
Manning, of Potomac, Maryland, was deployed to Baghdad and was held in pretrial confinement in Kuwait, U.S. officials said when they announced a month ago that he had been detained.
