Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Serious Legal question regarding Manning.

What mens rea is required for him to be guilty of what he is charged with, particularly the aiding the enemy part. Is "should have known" the stuff he released would end up in enemy hands? Or did he have to actually form the intent to give information to America's enemies (which I would assume could only mean al quaeda, the Taliban or affiliated groups.)
