Manning to tell judge about WikiLeaks disclosures
Thursday - 2/28/2013, 12:47pm EST
Pfc. Bradley Manning will answer questions Thursday from the judge who is considering whether to accept his offer to plead guilty to some charges.
Manning's only public explanation for giving classified material to WikiLeaks can be found in logs of an online chat with a confidant-turned-government informant. In those chats, Manning wrote that he engineered the leak because "information should be free" and he wanted "people to see the truth."
Even if a judge accepts his guilty plea, prosecutors can still pursue more serious charges against Manning. One charge is aiding the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence.
