Bradley Manning acquitted of aiding the enemy

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning has been acquitted of aiding the enemy for giving classified secrets to WikiLeaks.

The military judge hearing the case, Army Col. Denise Lind, announced the verdict today. The charge was the most serious of 21 counts. It carried a possible life sentence without parole.

Manning was convicted of five espionage counts, five theft charges, a computer fraud charge and other military infractions.

Manning’s sentencing hearing is set to begin Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Crescent, Okla., native acknowledged giving the anti-secrecy website hundreds of thousands of battlefield reports, diplomatic cables and videos in early 2010.

Manning said he didn’t believe the information would harm troops in Afghanistan and Iraq or threaten national security.

He should be released and commended for standing up to lies and exposing wrong doing by the government.

GDOG Quit drinking the Kool-Aid and look at the real facts Obammy has caused four people to die in Benghazi . He ordered the stand down, then lied. saying the attack was caused by f a video, that cause the deaths. He has launched drones against American citizens. Besides both OBAMMY and Hillary voted for BOTH wars .So they are just as guilty as you think BUSH is.
One other thing listening to MSNBC ,NBC ,ABC, networks for correct news is like listening to farts about cooking

Obama's drones killed 80 Afghans in just the past 24 hours; what's the body count (all nationalities) now since the 2001 invasion? What's the war crimes count?

One thing about Bush though... he didn't go campaigning after the attacks and try to say they were the result of a protest gone awry. All obozo knows is lies. Did you know that a lot of dumbocrats also lied about WMD ?? Do you realize that due to his policies in Iraq and Afghanistan that obozo is just wasting those lives that were lost?? Did you know that obozo created MUCH MORE debt in MUCH LESS time than the shrub?

gdog- I'm not a republican (or a rescumlican) or a dumbocrat. Jokes on you I guess. Go google what I said if you want evidence or proof (have mommy show you how to do that). I don't listen to talk radio and don't need anyone to tell me how to think (like an obamabot). lmao@u BTW (and to keep it on topic) you were right about snowden....you should have stopped there...
