Bradley Manning

Bradley Edward Manning (born December 17 1987) is a United States Army Private who was arrested in May 2010 in Baghdad, Iraq, for what is widely considered one of the most serious security breaches in US history. He faces eight charges of sending classified documents to Wikileaks for which he pleaded guilty as of November 2012, as well as 14 other more serious counts including aiding the enemy. He also faces allegations of being in email contact with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Much of the classified information he released was published by Wikileaks or affiliated organisations between April and November 2010, constituting one of the largest set of restriced documents ever leaked to the general public.

His trial is set to begin in February 2013.
