On the first day of the trial of Bradley Manning, the Army private accusing of aiding enemies of the United States by transmitting classified documents to Wikileaks, attorneys did their best to shape perceptions. One key suggestion, the link to bin Laden, isn't as clear as has been reported.
San Francisco Pride Board president Lisa L. Williams has released a statement denying that Manning was ever close to becoming the Grand Marshal.
Bradley Manning's brave lawyer just published the full statement that the young private read aloud in his pretrial hearing last month, detailing how and why he gave government secrets to WikiLeaks.
A summary of the best reads found behind the paywall of The New York Times.
The setting from which Bradley Manning sent Wikileaks "the most significant documents of our time" isn't straight out of a Bond movie — turns out it was a busy Barnes and Noble in suburban Maryland.
Manning indicated during his statement that he'd attempted to give The New York Times, Washington Post, and Politico the material, but that some combination of weather, vague offers, and unreturned voicemails led him to try Julian Assange instead.
For the first time, Manning offered pleas to the charges filed against him in the Wikileaks case — and they didn't go as far as everyone expected on a video depicting an American air strike in Afghanistan or on charges that he was "aiding the enemy."
Perhaps having seen one too many second-tier Oscar contenders, the government may call a Navy SEAL from the Osama bin Laden raid into a strained effort to prove the most serious charge against Bradley Manning, that he "aided the enemy."
There's no better way to prop up the seriousness of threats to national security than to get Osama bin Laden involved. That's exactly what the prosecutors in the Bradley Manning case are doing.
The controversial pretrial conditions offered by the U.S. military to WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning will now amount to just a little over three months trimmed off any future sentence, a military judge ruled Tuesday afternoon.
After Bradley Manning's very serious appearance on the stand during his pretrial hearing yesterday, the man facing charges for the Wikileaks security breach has in his testimony today unleashed a truth of Iraq that America may never unlearn.
Bradley Manning took the stand today in his pretrial hearing to discuss his confinement in both Kuwait and Quantico, Virginia — and the conditions were even more disturbing than we thought.
Things are starting to get a little bit weird at the pretrial hearings for Bradley Manning, the Army private charged with leaking thousands of classified U.S. military documents to WikiLeaks.
While everybody fighting through their post-election hangovers on Wednesday, Bradley Manning's defense team indicated that the imprisoned private would be open to a plea bargain.
In what's probably the most exciting news about the Nobel Peace Prize other than the actual announcement, a spokesman has announced that 231 nominations have been submitted but won't reveal the names, leading to today's guessing games.
All in all, Army analysts have concluded, the prosecution of Bradley Manning hasn't gone so badly for the Army's public image.
The prosecution and defense gave their final statements in Bradley Manning's pretrial hearing Thursday, and both sides ended up taking a "you let me down" approach.
After five days of U.S. prosecutors presenting evidence in support of their prosecution of Pfc. Bradley Manning for releasing a trove of classified information to WikiLeaks, the young soldier's own lawyers called just two witnesses and rested their case before lunch, surprising the military courtroom in Ft. Mead.
It was an eventful day at the fourth hearing of alleged WikiLeaker PFC Bradley Manning in Ft. Meade, Maryland Monday.
