manningWhen this blog was written, the verdict regarding the Manning trial was unknown. It is almost a certainty that he will be adjudicated guilty and may face a great deal of time in prison. This is, after all, a military trial. The rules are different in the military sector than in the civilian court system.

Some consider Manning a hero while others consider him a traitor. Regardless of the viewpoint of the public, it will be the government and the court that will make the all important judgement that will steer the course of Pvt Manning’s future.
