Soldier charged in wikileaks case, what does he deserve?

BAGHDAD – An American soldier suspected of leaking a military video of an attack on unarmed men in Iraq was charged with multiple counts of mishandling and leaking classified data and putting national security at risk, the U.S. Army said in a statement Tuesday.

Army Spc. Bradley Manning is suspected of leaking a classified video that shows a group of men walking down the street before being repeatedly shot by the Apache helicopters. The American gunners can be heard laughing and referring to the men as "dead bastards."

If convicted on all charges, Manning could be sentenced to a maximum 52 years in prison.

  • He's lucky they don't charge him with treason for giving away classified information and endangering national security.

  • Is it not bad enough we have to be over there fighting another countries fight? People are really doing their jobs, protecting and serving and doing what they think is right. This just brings up another whole set of feelings and emotions. Who can we blame this time? The president that started this mess with a lie in the first place? Sorry, I guess we can't unring that bell.
