United States v. Bradley Manning, Army Court Decision

On July 30, 2013, Judge Denise Lind, an army colonel, ruled in the United States v. Private First Class Bradley Manning trial that Manning is not guilty of aiding the enemy, but guilty on other counts of violating the espionage act. Manning released secret diplomatic cables and classified military reports from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to Wikileaks.

Additional transcripts of the Manning trial are on the Press Freedom Foundation website and on Federation of American Scientists page on the case files.
