(Ft. Meade, MD) -- Army Private Bradley Manning is acquitted of a charge of aiding the enemy for leaking secret information to the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks. At his court-martial at Fort Meade, Manning was convicted on multiple lesser counts. Manning had faced up to life in prison if convicted of aiding the enemy.
He leaked hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy website in 2010. Those documents dealt with military action in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with correspondence sent to the State Department from diplomats around the world. It's considered the largest leak of classified information in U.S. history.
The sentencing phase starts tomorrow morning, but could run for weeks. Bradley Manning could face more than 100 years behind bars after being convicted on multiple charges related to the leaking of classified information
