Accused Wikileaker Bradley Manning to be Court-Martialed

The US Army has determined that PFC Bradley Manning, accused of distributing thousands of classified documents outside cleared channels, will be court-martialed.

Military District of Washington commander Maj. Gen. Michael Linnington referred all charges against Pfc. Bradley Manning to a general court-martial, the Army said in a statement.

The referral means Manning will stand trial for allegedly giving more than 700,000 secret U.S. documents and classified combat video to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks for publication.

He faces charges that include aiding the enemy, though the Army has decided not to pursue the death penalty.
