Bradley Manning Guilty on Most Charges, Not Guilty on Aiding the Enemy

From ABC News
Bradley Manning, the source of one of WikiLeak's largest disclosures of U.S. secrets, was found guilty of most of the charges against him today, but not the most serious charge of aiding the enemy. 
Manning had already pleaded guilty to 10 of the less serious of the 22 charges in a deal that got him an expected 20 years in prison. Today a military judge announced the court's finding on the rest of the charges, a majority of them guilty verdicts. However, Manning managed to avoid the charge of aiding the enemy, which could have carried with it a life sentence. The sentencing face of Manning's trial begins Wednesday.
More to come
