Verdict In For Accused Traitor Pfc. Bradley Manning
Pfc. Bradley Manning has been found "not guilty" of the charge of "aiding the enemy," the most serious charge that he's faced--and one that would have given him life in prison if convicted.
Manning has been found "guilty" of "wantonly causing to be published intelligence on the Internet."
According to Fire Dog Lake reporter, Kevin Gosztola, who's in the courtroom:
Bradley Manning is found guilty of enough charges to potentially be put in prison for over 100 years.
