Bradley Manning to Face Full Court Martial

Ugh, this is sad news:

Bradley Manning

An investigating officer has recommended that Army private Bradley Manning face court-martial on multiple criminal charges related to the downloading of nearly 1 million war logs and secret diplomatic cables. Manning is accused of taking the files and them passing them on to WikiLeaks.

If he does face a court martial and is convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison.

Lieutenant Colonel Paul Almanza, who presided over a preliminary hearing for Manning just before Christmas, said today that there’s reason to believe Manning broke the law. Almanza said Manning should face formal charges of theft, computer violations, aiding the enemy and causing intelligence to be published on the Internet.

His recommendation will now be reviewed by higher levels in the military.


So, who caused more harm to theUnited States, Bradley Manning or the Marines who appear on video urinating on dead Afghanis?

I say the Marines.
