Bradley Manning verdict today

Today a military judge will rule on the Bradley Manning Wikileaks case.  If Private Manning is convicted on the “aiding the enemy” charge, he could face life without the chance of parole in a military prison.  Regardless if you feel Manning is guilty or innocent, this could have a serious impact on investigative journalism and how much we know about what our government is doing.  It’s a big deal.HolderLetterPutin
