Bradley Manning Is Guilty!

Bradley Manning

How guilty is he?

Stay tuned and find out. The chances of him being acquitted on all charges are slim and none, and slim has been disqualified. He has admitted to several of the less-serious charges against him. There is no way that a military judge is gonna let him skate.

The real issue the most serious charge against him – “aiding the enemy”. If he is convicted of that charge he could get life in prison. In his case that means spending the rest of his days as a private in the army stationed in a cell at Ft. Leavenworth. Of course a president could pardon him or commute some or all of his sentence.

For policy reasons he’s gonna get a harsh penalty – probably a minimum of 20 years. The government doesn’t want its disgruntled minions going rogue with classified information so they will stomp all over Manning to make that point.

I’m guessing that Edward Snowden will be watching this case very closely. So will Julian Assange. Manning could potentially get his sentence considerably reduced if he were to testify against the Wikileaks founder.

I don’t know if Manning will be sentenced today. I never participated in any courts-martial so I am unsure of procedure.

What do you think?

    How am I supposed to think ? LOL. I guess I’m on the fence since Obama seems to be doing more damage to our country than a buck private ever could.

    My problem with Manning has always been not releasing Obama’s school records, so meh. 😉

      It really isn’t fair that the president can classify/declassify something depending on how it benefits him politically but a whistleblower who exposes government wrongdoing to the media has no protection.

      I’d think Manning’s greatest post-sentencing fear would be being released into the general Leavenworth population. He’d be smart to offer something – anything – to keep that from occurring.

  2. Klown says:

    I’m not sure if this will be televised or just announced.

  3. Klown says:

    Manning is in court. Looks like it won’t be televised but Fox is covering.

  4. Klown says:

    Per Fox: Not guilty of aiding the enemy.

  5. Klown says:

    He will have a sentencing hearing tomorrow.

    Wonder if Obama will pull a scooter libby, and let him out.

      If I was Brad I would sit down while I was waiting.

        He’s pretty much fucked. The right wants to see him hang. The Obots want to burn him at the stake for sinning against Barack.

        The only people on his side are the loony left and nobody cares what they think.

    I am glad he is not guilty of treason , I think he is more of a whistleblower than a traitor .

      It will be at least 20 yrs. Now. Later, when the bloom is off the roses, it will be reset to time served and banishment to Scandinavia.

      It’s interesting to take a turn around the intertubes to see what kind of punishment Manning should facing. Everything from a full pardon to the firing squad. I couldn’t find any comments from Sharpton and Neblett.

    bradley manning verdict bad news for journalists

    • 49erDweet says:

      And that’s the GOOD news. The bad is there’s another 40 months of lousy news ahead until a shaft of light can creep into that tunnel.

    “The primary problem with the so-called elites is that they are not elite, and they are neither wise, nor intelligent, nor educated, nor enlightened, nor superior in any fashion save two, accident of circumstance and elevated self-regard.”

    Can we call them the de-lites, un-lites, faux-lites, non-lites, dumb-lites or what? Maybe Fail-lites because that is all they do.
