Bradley Manning Explains Why He Released To Documents To WikiLeaks 'First He Went To NYT'
...And they only had to torture/imprison him for 3 years to get a "confession" out of him! - Chris
Wednesday marked a significant turning point for the case against Army Private Bradley Manning. The 25-year-old soldier pleaded guilty in Fort Meade, Maryland to 10 of the 22 charges against him in relation to his role in giving sensitive files to the website WikiLeaks. Manning's involvement with the website has led him to be detained for over 1,000 days without a court-martial, but on Thursday he admitted during pre-trial hearings that he indeed submitted a trove of materials, including over 250,000 diplomatic cables, to the site. RT web producer Andrew Blake joins us for more from Fort Meade.
