FORT MEADE, Md. -- Pfc. Bradley Manning went on trial Monday for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, including sensitive information prosecutors said fell into enemy hands.
Manning, a 25-year-old former intelligence analyst from Oklahoma, has admitted to giving troves of information to WikiLeaks, but military prosecutors want to prove Manning he aided the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence. They said they will present evidence that former al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden asked for and received information WikiLeaks published.
"This is a case of about what happens when arrogance meets access to sensitive information," Capt. Joe Morrow said.....

He needs to be executed! Pronto!
Guilty of Treason, Verdict Death by hanging.
Manning should hang. But so should those who gave him a security clearance, and those who set up the system so someone in his position had access to so much information.
Would it be OK if he was a member of the press? Just askin.
Or the Vice President and white house that gave so much operational detail I was going to send a thank you note to the members of Seal Team Six, except they were targeted and killed .
That little creep needs to be the guinea pig for any not yet tested means of....making the enemy “uncomfortable”.
I thought that no one could out sleaze the Obamadork, but this little piece of excrement most certainly does it.
Take him out of solitary and put him in general population ( certain wings maybe) at Leavenworth. Problem solved without all the assorted BS in a rather expedited fashion.
We can guess the answer.
Why, whether it's IRS harassment, free speech, divulging sources under oath, is the press treated differently than your average patriotic citizen?
IMO, the corrupt media is far more dangerous to America than any democrat or islamist, and We the People should act accordingly.
If that apartment is rented, the UK government should simply offer the landlord double the price when the lease comes up and take Assange into custody when the apartment ceases to be Ecuadorean soil.
That would be the most efficient way to capture him.
Maybe more accurate. . .
Traitor; summarily-execute him.
Gitmo would be a reward, in with the Muzzie buddies.
I vote for Terre Haute.
Few in Australia would object if he were tried in US federal court for espionage, however.
WHO gave him those documents? the trail leads to the same place as everything else these days
Isn’t it something that the prosecutor, the media and everyone else involved in this case act as if this PFC was a lone wolf in all this.
If they don’t root out who helped him, this problem will not go away.
