The court martial of the soldier accused of committing the largest intelligence leak in U.S. history is officially underway. Here’s euronews.
“Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier accused of handing secret files to WikiLeaks has been formally charged with aiding the enemy. Manning chose to defer a plea on all of the 22 charges against him.”
Manning is accused of giving over 400,000 pages of classified documents to WikiLeaks. Manning chose not to enter a plea, or to make the decision on whether to stand before a panel of service members or a single judge. The Guardian explains the move.
“A military legal expert said that the delay of a plea and forum decision was usually a strategic one, while lawyers wait to see how the motions they have filed are dealt with.”
The charges against Manning include aiding the enemy and violating the Espionage Act. Manning’s defense says he never should have been given access to classified information, because the military should have picked up on his emotional troubles. Politico reports...
“At a preliminary hearing in December, the defense painted Manning as tormented by gender identity issues, suffering from violent outbursts and mental breakdowns during his deployment to Iraq in 2009 and 2010.”
Manning’s defense is also going to rely on the government’s admission the leaks didn’t actually harm national security. A legal analyst and Manning supporter explains the argument for RT.
“One thing that Manning’s lawyer wants to do is to cross examine the people who decided to classify these documents to show they were misclassified. If they didn’t harm national security, they shouldn’t have been secrets to begin with.”
Manning has been imprisoned since May 2010, including a year of solitary confinement which Manning’s supporters say was unwarranted. Activists on his behalf say Manning is being used as a pawn to get to WikiLeak’s founder Julian Assange. ABC Australia reports Assange’s lawyers will be watching this trial closely.
“They fear that if the WikiLeaks founder is ultimately extradited to the United States, Private Manning could be encouraged to turn against him.”
The actual trial isn’t scheduled until August, but Manning’s lawyers want to speed up the process, asking the judge to consider beginning the trial in April.
