Bradley Manning found not guilty of aiding the enemy, guilty on other charges

By Ashley Fantz and Chelsea J. Carter

A military judge has found Pfc. Bradley Manning, accused of the largest leak of classified information in U.S. history, not guilty of aiding the enemy - a charge that would have carried a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Manning was also found not guilty of unauthorized possession of information relating to national defense.

He was found guilty of most of the remaining charges against him, with the judge, Col. Denise Lind, accepting only two of the guilty pleas he had made previously to lesser charges. Those two were possession of a video that was marked classified and that he exceeded authority by obtaining a State Department cable.

Though those two counts carry a maximum sentence of two years, the rest of the charges that Manning was found guilty of could lead to a maximum sentence of 136 years in prison. Among the charges Manning was found guilty of - which carry a maximum 10-year sentence - are the theft of more than 700 U.S. Southern Command records, the possession of records pertaining to Afghanistan; the theft of State Department cables and the possession of classified Army documents.

      Such is to be expected from someone like you with your obvious limitations, California. You sound like another right-wing, hillbilly Tea Partier from the South. Are you one?

    Pfc. Bradley Manning found NOT guilty on one of the charges? This is a surprise but he was found guilty on the rest. This young should never to have been prosecuted in the first place which is no more that a great travesty of justice. On the other hand, those swine who urinated on those dead men in Afghanistan, purportedly Taliban, will only get a slap on the wrist for what they did. Furthermore, many of those jerks who assaulted their female counterparts in the military got off scott free!!!
