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.

Flashback Stops Witch Trial of Assange

Perhaps the most curious thing in the entire coverage of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange are the recurring cries for transparency. What's WikiLeaks hiding? Why did he rape that woman? Op-ed page up and culture page down demanding WikiLeaks open up its guts and get Assange to sit quietly in the BBC studio when he's asked for the umpteenth time how many lovers he's had. People should be able to tolerate a little transparency!

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.
