snip -

WASHINGTON - An Army officer
is recommending a general
court-martial for a low-ranking
intelligence analyst charged in
the biggest leak of classified
information in U.S. history.
Lt. Col. Paul Almanza's
recommendation regarding Pfc.
Bradley Manning now goes up
the chain of command for a
final determination. Military
District of Washington
commander Maj. Gen. Michael
Linnington will ultimately decide
whether Manning will stand

Defense lawyers say Manning
was clearly a troubled young
soldier. They say the Army
never should have sent him to
Iraq or given him access to
classified material.

ooh... this ticks me off. they sent over a very emotionally upset young man to do low level work and gave him access despite that, and their horrible protections of info led to this. I pray for ya Bradley. I hope your lawyer and the Obama Admin convince the mil to not go overboard and to, instead, accept some egg on their faces concerning this.


Additional story: a very good read ---
