ABC News' Yunji de Nies reports:

Yunji de Nies:  Two questions, Robert. The first one is, given the apparent ease that Mr. Manning was able to obtain and transfer these documents, has the White House or anyone in the administration ordered any kind of immediate change to make sure that this is not…

GIBBS:  I would point you to the Department of Defense that should be able to discuss what changes they've made in operational security.

de Nies:  Do you have any insight into what Mr. Manning may have been motivated by?

GIBBS:  Not personally, no.  I — I — I don't know if the Department of Defense would have something.

de Nies:  The president's reaction, can you give us any kind of insight in terms of was he angry, was he concerned, was he worried?

GIBBS:  Well, look, I think anytime you — you — anytime in which more than 90,000 top secret documents, which are against the law for me to give to you, would — I think it would be safe to say it's alarming to find 90,000 of them published on a website.

de Nies:  Last question:  Also on Ms. Sherrod, I wondered if you had any word on whether she'll accept a job that's been offered and if there's any timeframe for that?

GIBBS:  That's a question for her.
