WikiLeaks: Bradley Manning's motives are no defence, judge rules [View all]

Source: The Telegraph

A US military judge ruled Wednesday that Bradley Manning's motive for allegedly leaking a huge cache of secret files to WikiLeaks is no defence against the long list of charges he faces.

...

Manning's lawyers had argued that evidence should be heard at trial about why the soldier chose to illicitly transmit the confidential documents to WikiLeaks, but the request was largely thrown out.

In what amounts to a victory for prosecutors, Colonel Denise Lind, the judge, said Manning's motive was not a valid defence.

The judge ruled that that Manning's motive could only be examined to argue that he did not "knowingly aid the enemy," chiefly Al-Qaeda, by uploading and releasing the files.

As a reminder, here is his charge sheet:

He's charged with:
* leaking the gunship video
* leaking the State Department cables
* leaking the powerpoints of Iraq and Afghanistan status briefings
* Hacking SIPRnet (the allegedly secure network the DoD uses)

This is not about Guantanamo (somebody else leaked that) or torture.
