Army investigator recommends court martial for Bradley Manning
"Aiding the enemy": That’s one of the crimes that Lieutenant Colonel Paul Almanza, who was tasked with an investigation of Manning’s case, says there is evidence he committed. Almanza has advised the Army to submit Manning to a court martial, relating to the massive, classified document dump to Wikileaks, with which he’s been accused. Manning’s defense attorney, David Coombs, has voiced complaint that Almanza works in the Justice department as a civilian. Justice is currently building a case against Wikileaks head Julian Assange, which opens up risk of conflict of interest. If Manning is convicted through a court martial, he could face life imprisonment. source

By witness counts alone, the odds are stacked against Bradley Manning

  • twenty number of witnesses prosecutors called against Bradley Manning, who faces charges of leaking classified information, over a four-day period
  • two number of witnesses the defense called before they said they were done — it took them part of Wednesday morning source

» What could happen to Manning? The man who allegedly gave Wikileaks its biggest coup could face the death penalty if convicted in his case — though the Army’s prosecutors have made it clear that they will not ask for that. Among the people who have testified against Manning: Jihrleah Showman, a former team leader of Manning’s who claims he once punched her in the face, and Adrian Lamo, the “grey hat” hacker who gained infamy in some circles for turning Manning in to federal authorities.

Bradley Manning’s attorney: Wikileaks release didn’t hurt anybody
An interesting defense strategy: The lawyers for the long-held-in-detention Bradley Manning, the former soldier who allegedly gathered and the diplomatic cables that Wikileaks eventually released, are apparently angling for the “these cables didn’t actually cause any problems” angle, noting in a court documents released Monday that the White House and the Defense Department reviewed the cables and found nothing damaging, due to the fact that the data was outdated, already publicly-released or represented low-level information. Manning’s first hearing — finally — is December 16. (thanks Michael Cote) source
