Pfc. Manning offers plea in WikiLeaks case
Pfc. Manning offers plea in WikiLeaks case

FORT MEADE, Md. — The Army private charged with sending reams of government secrets to WikiLeaks is offering to plead guilty to some offenses.

Manning isn’t pleading guilty to the offenses charged by the government. Rather, he is offering to take responsibility for less serious offenses that are encapsulated within the charged crimes.

Of course, the military STILL could go after him on more serious charges and it looks like he is electing trial by a judge and not a jury.

For those that are not familiar with the case:


Manning reportedly was quoted in an online chat as stating that he had downloaded "260,000 State Department cables from embassies and consulates all over the world," among other classified documents, from a military computer network.

The release of the leak document would have allegedly put government against government.
