Valin Posted February 4, 2012 Share Posted February 4, 2012 Hot Air: Jazz Shaw 2/3/12 The long, deliberative military process has finally reached the top of the food chain. Reports are coming out today that Maj. Gen. Michael S. Linnington has followed the recommendations of the preliminary hearing and will send Bradley Manning to Court Martial for a variety of crimes including aiding the enemy in a time of war. The commander of the Military District of Washington has ordered a court-martial for Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, the former intelligence analyst accused of giving hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. (Snip) (Snip) While Manning would normally qualify for death (likely before a firing squad) all current reports indicate that the prosecution will only seek life in prison. Either way, the investigation has gone on long enough that the Army clearly feels they have the goods and can deliver a case sufficient to obtain a conviction. The current odds would indicate that Manning will likely never see the outside of a prison again. (Snip) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
