    Bradley Manning Offers Guilty Pleas

    Bradley Manning, the Army soldier accused of leaking more than a half million confidential U.S. documents to whistleblower website WikiLeaks, has offered to plead guilty to some charges during his ongoing pre-trial hearing.
    Among the charges that Manning faces, and that Coombs wants dropped, is "aiding the enemy," which can be punishable by life in prison.

    In my opinion he isnt guilty of anything. But hopefully since we are working within the court of law here and what not, this plea goes through and is approved because Manning does not deserve life in prison. He did not "aide the enemy" in any which way.

    I'm against capital punishment, I'm glad he seems to have avoided it. I'm fine with life in prison.

    i'm conflicted on this case. on the one hand i know whistleblowers are a critical part of a free society. on the other it smells of treason.

    You base your belief that he is not guilty on what?

    Life in prison at hard labor is adequate. If anything, to make an example for those who would remotely consider doing something similar. And I have no problems with whistleblowers, thats not what Bradley Manning is....at all.

    The military has a clear policy on how to be a whistleblower. Releasing documents on the internet is not the legal method. Treason I think is too strong for what he did. Espionage I think covers it.

    but can a legitimate whistleblower really trust that policy? never know how far up corruption extends.

    His espionage rises to the level of treason.
    National security isn't something you mess with in the manner he did.
    Put him to rest.
