Manning sentenced to 35 years in prison: He’s also receiving a dishonorable discharge, a loss of rank, and a forfeit of his pay. However, he will not be fined.
Updates when we get them.
UPDATE: Manning will be eligible for parole, but will be required to serve one-third of the sentence. With time served—1,293 days—counted against the 35-year total, that means he’ll be in prison for a minimum of eight more years. The sentence is a little more than half what the federal government asked for.

Today’s Top Ten Front Pages: Guilty, Not Guilty

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was front and center on Page One today, after a military judge declared him guilty of leaking government documents, but not guilty of aiding the enemy. Front pages handled the mixed verdict in mixed ways — some focused on the guilty verdict; others on the acquittal. The Beaufort Gazette focused on “Manning’s Fate,” noting that he “could face 136 years in prison.”

The WSJ cover is solid as well, showing a sharp contrast by simply listing the “not guilty” versus the “guilty.”

BREAKING: Bradley Manning NOT GUILTY of aiding the enemy, but convicted of multiple counts under Espionage Act.

@ellievhall (via brooklynmutt)

A partial conviction, but not on the most serious count. Significant.

EDIT: AP says that he was convicted on five counts of espionage.

If someone tells me they’re going to shoot themselves in the face, I’m not going to give them a gun.
Marine Master Sgt. Craig Blenis • Discussing, during a trial for Pfc. Bradley Manning, why he recommended, as a member of the board he was on, that Manning remain at suicide-risk status, leading to the oft-reported harsh conditions Manning faced while staying in Quantico, Va. Among the reported tell signs: A noose fashioned out of a bedsheet from when he was held in Kuwait, and a written statement where Manning claimed he was “always planning and never acting” on suicidal impulses. These claims overrode a psychiatrist’s opinion that Manning was of no harm to himself or anyone around him.

Filing closes (noon Monday), and until that time, someone could pull out or change their mind. People wanting to know more should wait until next week. That’s all I’ve got to say right now.
South Carolina joke candidate Alvin Greene • Regarding his apparent decision to run for an open South Carolina state House seat, which opened up after state Rep. Cathy Harvin died earlier this month. In case you’re wondering, the filing fee is a tad cheaper than the $10,500 he paid for his Senate run – a modest $165. So, even though he’s still throwing away money, he has a slightly more realistic chance at winning this time around. But like he said, someone could pull out or change their mind.
