Manning acquitted of aiding the enemy

Manning pleaded guilty earlier this year to lesser offences that could have brought him 20 years behind bars, yet the government continued to pursue the original, more serious charges. Manning has said he leaked the material to expose the U.S military's "bloodlust" and disregard for human life, and what he considered American diplomatic deceit. He said he chose information he believed would not the harm the US, and he wanted to start a debate on military and foreign policy. He did not testify at his trial.

Bradley Manning: Truth on trial? Interview with Julian Assange

This trial is worth watching because of the implications for whistleblowers and the US journalistic organisations that rely on government insiders, so that Americans know what the government is doing in their name. The case also has ramifications for Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency contractor and source of the recent Guardian stories on US intelligence agencies and their surveillance capabilities, that may well extend to the phone records of just about every American, as well as their online correspondence. Snowden is already undergoing the same kind of trial by media that Manning received before getting to court.

US withheld email evidence in WikiLeaks case

The defense team for Private Bradley Manning, who could be jailed for life for aiding the enemy over the massive security breach, alleged that more than 1,300 messages were ignored by prosecutors for at least six months. The emails relate to the conditions that the 24-year-old trooper was held in military detention at Quantico, Virginia, where he was sent after a spell in a US Army jail in Kuwait following his arrest when on duty in Iraq in 2010.

COMMENTS by President Barack Obama about the soldier accused of the biggest intelligence leak in US history were prejudicial and sought to harm the suspect's defence, a court has heard.

WikiLeaks case focuses on intent to aid enemy

PROSECUTORS must prove that US Army private Bradley Manning intended to help al-Qaeda by passing secret government documents to the WikiLeaks website, defence lawyers argued on Monday. Manning s civilian attorney questioned the heart of the government s case at a pretrial hearing, contending that prosecutors had to show more than mere "negligence" to win a conviction for the serious offence of "aiding the enemy". The government had to prove Manning "intended to engage the enemy" by allegedly leaking sensitive files to a website, David Coombs said. Otherwise the trial would ignore the realities of the internet era and anyone who passed classified information to a newspaper could be accused of treason because adversaries have access to the web.

WikiLeaks, whistleblowers and wars – Hypocricy of Obama Administration

On February 24, the Washington Post ran a prominent story on a "top-secret" State Department cable that warned of Pakistani safe-havens for militants that were allegedly putting the "US strategy in Afghanistan in jeopardy". The cable was so secret, the Post reported, the US Ambassador to Afghanistan "sent it through CIA channels rather than the usual State Department ones". Yet somehow, it still ended up on the pages of one of the biggest newspapers in the United States of America. While many might have assumed this was the work of WikiLeaks and their alleged source Bradley Manning, it wasn't.

Bradley Manning vs the US military

It has been more than 17 months since Private Bradley Manning was arrested for allegedly leaking classified US military documents to Julian Assange and his whistleblowing website WikiLeaks. Since his detention, there has been news of torture, solitary confinement and mistreatment by prison guards. The information leaked by Manning to WikiLeaks made front page news around the world. But Manning's case and the grim conditions of his detention have not attracted as much press.

Bradley Manning and the miscarriage of justice

Last week, after an astounding 567 days in prison, Bradley Manning - the US Army private accused of leaking the WikiLeaks documents - finally began his pre-trial hearing. In the year and a half since he has been in jail, Manning has been severely mistreated by his jailers, has been assumed guilty by the president and now potentially faces life in jail. Yet the "crime" he is accused of is something many US officials do with regularity: leak classified information in the public interest to news organisations.

Pvt Manning proves ‘slippery slope’

Bradley Manning, the Army intelligence analyst accused of leaking a massive trove of classified material to WikiLeaks, has been imprisoned since May 2010. The treatment to which he has been subjected, including protracted isolation, systematic humiliations and routinised sleep deprivation, got more extreme last week when the commander of the brig at Quantico, Virginia, imposed on him a regime of forced nakedness at night and during an inspection of his cell every morning until his clothing is returned.

I’m sorry that I could not be a friend to Manning says Adrian Lamo

These were Adrian Lamo s words in response to my request for an interview. The 29-year-old Colombian-American ex-hacker gave alleged Wikileaks source Private Bradley Manning over to authorities. Ever since then he has become one of the most hated figures in cyberspace, receiving all types of threats, with 'different degrees of credibility' according to him.

Why Bradley Manning is a patriot, not a criminal

Bradley Manning, a 23-year-old from Crescent, Oklahoma, enlisted in the U.S. military in 2007 to give something back to his country and, he hoped, the world. For the past seven months, Army Private First Class Manning has been held in solitary confinement in the Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Virginia. Twenty-five thousand other Americans are also in prolonged solitary confinement, but the conditions of Manning s pre-trial detention have been sufficiently brutal for the United Nation s Special Rapporteur on Torture to announce an investigation.

Bradley Manning, the 22-year-old U.S. Army Private accused of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, has never been convicted of that crime, nor of any other crime. Despite that, he has been detained at the U.S. Marine brig in Quantico, Virginia for five months -- and for two months before that in a military jail in Kuwait -- under conditions that constitute cruel and inhumane treatment and, by the standards of many nations, even torture.
