Supporters of accused WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning protested outside Fort Meade on Saturday just two days before the young soldier’s court martial opens at the army camp.
More than three years after he was arrested in relation to the largest leak of classified documents in US history, Manning will stand trial Monday over counts including “aiding the enemy” – a charge that could see him jailed for life with no chance of parole.
Manning has already pleaded guilty to one charge of transmitting digital information to WikiLeaks. But army prosecutors are seeking to convict him of a further 21 counts, including “aiding the enemy”. To get a guilty verdict on that charge, prosecutors must prove that he knowingly gave classified information to al-Qaida and affiliated terror groups.
