The military judge in the trial of Pfc. Bradley Manning decided on Thursday not to drop a charge accusing Private Manning of 'aiding the enemy.' If found guilty, Private Manning could face life in prison plus an additional 154 years. Manning confessed to ten lesser charges that could get him 20 years. The judge, Col. Denise Lind, said the government had provided sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Private Manning knowingly gave information to certain enemy groups such as Al Qaeda when he passed hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks in 2009. The defense argued in court on Monday that Private Manning did not act voluntarily and deliberately in aiding the enemy when he leaked the documents. But Colonel Lind concluded that Private Manning did have 'actual knowledge' that the intelligence he leaked would end up in the hands of the enemy.
