    (CNN) -- A military judge has found Pfc. Bradley Manning, accused of the largest leak of classified information in U.S. history, not guilty of aiding the enemy -- a charge that would have carried a maximum sentence of life in prison.

    He was found guilty of most of the remaining charges against him, with the judge accepting some of the guilty pleas he made previously to lesser charges.

    If he had been found guilty on the aiding the enemy charge, Manning could have been sentenced to life in prison. He could be sentenced to up to 20 years behind bars on some of the other charges.

    Manning already has spent three years in custody.

    Still facing decades in jail. Good. The aiding the enemy was a hard sale, I'm not suprised it didn't go through.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I guess we don't want "aiding the enemy" to be so general that it would apply to people who give money to Muslim "charities".

    You can't tell me that in this day and age there is no way that this little POS traitor didn't know this info would fall into the hands of the enemy.


    As soon as Assange posted the files the Taliban started downloading and reading them.


    Aiding the enemy wasn't a hard sell...the judge just didn't want to open a can of worms that would allow the charge to be made agaisnt certain media people that have essentially done the same thing with their reporting.

    It was PC not lack of evidence that stopped that charge from going the other way.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
